Charity walk raises over £2,000 for the Barth Syndrome Foundation

A huge well done to all 27 members of Team Eclipse, who recently completed the Jane Tomlinson’s Walk for All “Blockbuster” charity hike.

The Blockbuster event saw hundreds of participants take on the challenge of a 14-mile hike in the Yorkshire Dales.  The hikers experienced all weather seasons – from heavy rain and gale-force winds, through to welcoming sunshine – whilst tackling the arduous route which included a 418-step climb up Malham Cove.

Eclipse’s nominated charity for the event was for the Barth Syndrome Foundation.  BST is dedicated to saving lives through education, advances in treatment, and finding a cure for Barth syndrome – a sometimes fatal, oftentimes debilitating genetic disease affecting boys.

Team Eclipse raised over £2,000 for the charity, and would like to thank all of those who kindly made donations.  To show your support, you can still donate – please visit the Eclipse Virgin Money Giving page.

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
