Slee Blackwell LLP have won the NSPCC 2018 Childhood Champion Award for Corporate Partner of the Year for South West and Channel Islands.
This award is in recognition of our ‘outstanding efforts and contribution to the NSPCC’ alongside the impact we have made on children and young people’s lives.
To celebrate the achievement and receive the award Elizabeth Duncan, a lawyer in our child abuse team with close links to the NSPCC, has been invited to the Awards Ceremony in London this summer.
HRH The Countess of Wessex, Patron of the NSPCC, will present the Awards. Dame Esther Rantzen, Founder of Childline, will also be attending.
Congratulating Slee Blackwell on the award, NSPCC CEO Peter Wanless commented:
‘Well done on your achievement. I hope you feel proud that your dedication and excellence in volunteering is recognised by your peers and colleagues. Keep up the hard work as people like you are vital to the success of the NSPCC and everything we do for children.’
Rachel Thain, an abuse lawyer at our Taunton office, said:
“We are overwhelmed to have won such a prestigious award: It was quite unexpected. I’m gratified to know that our efforts are appreciated at the highest level and that we have made a real difference to the lives of children and young people in this country.“
Slee Blackwell managing partner, Nick Arthur, added his congratulations:
“ I’m delighted that the hard work of Elizabeth and Rachel on behalf of the NSPCC has been publicly recognised in this way. They are a credit to the firm and we are extremely proud of their achievements.”
