Staff at Yorkshire-based Eclipse Legal Systems, the UK’s largest independently owned legal software developer, successfully organised and participated in a raffle event raising thousands of pounds for their four nominated charities.

  • The Toy Library at St Lukes Hospital in Bradford, which operates a free loan service of specialist toys and play equipment to children with special needs.
  • Bradford Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust, which provides emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis.
  • The Bradford Soup Run, which offers food, clothing, blankets and encouragement to the homeless.
  • Pulse Radio Secret Santa Appeal, which sends presents to less fortunate children on Christmas day in the West Yorkshire region.

Raffle tickets were purchased by Eclipse staff for the chance to win a host of prizes donated by Eclipse, ranging from an iPad and a Kindle to extra holiday allowance. The total raised through ticket sales was £9,600, split between the four charities.

Steve Ough, Chief Software Architect at Eclipse Legal Systems, comments:

“We were keen to build on the money we had already raised through our sporting challenges in 2013, by organising a fundraising event to support some lesser known – but very deserving –  causes in our local area. A huge thank you to everyone who took part – the £9,600 raised will make a massive difference to all who rely upon the valuable support our chosen charities provide.”

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
