If you are on twitter you will definitely noticed over the last few weeks the momentum building up surrounding Sean Jones’ Billable Hour Appeal – feel free to check out the Just Giving page here https://www.justgiving.com/billablehour/
Whilst there has been mixed opinions in terms of the Refugee Crisis, Sean set out to raise as much as he could with solicitors and those in the profession donating one of their billable hours. You can find his twitter at: @seanjonesqc also you can always check out the #billablehour
So if you haven’t already seen this on twitter and feel like donating then please follow the link above.
One of the best parts of the Just Giving page has to be the phrase below in bold:
“The refugee crisis is real, urgent and claiming lives. We are asking lawyers to donate a billable hour to help Save the Children do its vital work.
Not everyone can give, we know. If you cannot please deploy your advocacy skills to nag someone else into doing so. “
