East Africa Food Crisis
Shocked by the food crisis unfolding in East Africa in 2011, Lawyers' Circle founders Miriam Gonzalez and Melanie Hall QC felt moved to raise awareness of the situation and funds to help provide relief.
Miriam Gonzalez hosted an emergency briefing at Admiralty House, highlighting the urgent need for financial support to help the millions of people facing the major food crisis.
Melanie Hall also arranged a dawn-till-dusk fundraising walk along the Devon coastline, which raised a fantastic £16,000.
We all talked and laughed so much the miles just flew by;
it's been very life affirming for all involved.
