A brush with the law

28 September 2010

A team of our staff swapped their law books for paintbrushes to give Oakley Resource Centre a fast facelift last month.

Nine lawyers and staff volunteered to spend an afternoon decorating the conference and training area at the Clyde Crescent centre.

Partner James Grigg explained: “The charity that runs the neighbourhood project is one of Willans’ clients. We acted for them when they took over the £1.2 million building in 2008.

“When we heard that the training and conference rooms were in need of a fresh coat of paint, we offered our services.

Kevin Potts, manager of the neighbourhood project, said:  “We are thrilled that so many staff at Willans volunteered to help. Support like this makes a huge difference to sustaining this much-needed facility so a big thank you to Willans for their help.”

Our volunteers were James Grigg, Trula Brunsdon, Simon Hodges, Suzanne O’Riordan, Grace Quinn, Susie Wynne, Katie Froude, Lesley Kadwell and Bernard Geerlings.

If you need clear and pragmatic legal advice, we’re here to help so please get in touch.
