Steve Arundale, Head of Professionals at NatWest, presents cheque to Nicola Hill, Community Fundraising Manager – CLIC Sargent.

Legal professionals from across the UK have helped raise nearly £1,500 for children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent as part of NatWest’s annual Legal Conference series.

The four free events, held in Milton Keynes, Glasgow, London and Manchester, were attended by over 450 delegates and looked at key business issues impacting legal firms.

Steve Arundale, Head of Professional Sectors for NatWest Commercial Banking asked delegates for donations in return for the 3.5hours of free CPD value earned at the event.

Steve said: “Delegates were requested to make a donation only if they thought the event was of good quality and had delivered personal benefit. As a result we have raised £1465.00 for a very worthwhile cause. Two years ago my 12 year old son lost a good friend to cancer and it was great to help a charity that supports children who are fighting this cruel decease.

“This is the fourth year that we’ve been running our legal conferences with Huhwaites and it was great to be raising money for charity as well as continuing our support of the legal sector.”

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
