Ambitions as a rider
A team of family lawyers is gearing up for a 500-kilometre charity bike ride in Thailand.
Four lawyers from Adelaide boutique firm The Family Law Project will undertake the ride in March through Australian charity Hands Across the Water.
It will be no mean feat, with participants covering 500 kilometres over five days in the heat and humidity of Thailand.
Principal solicitor Shaya Lewis-Dermody has signed up for the ride for the past two years, raising a minimum of $5,000 each year to assist orphaned children in Thailand.
One of The Family Law Project’s key fundraising strategies is charity will deals, “where wills are offered to clients at a reduced rate and 100 per cent of payment is applied towards the charity fundraising”, according to a statement from the firm.
With four lawyers making the trip this year, they are aiming to raise a minimum of $20,000.
The Family Law Project’s commitment to social responsibility has also seen it donate a percentage of fees to charities and aim to use paperless files whenever possible.
