St John’s Chambers barristers and staff raise over £6,000 for the Ukraine Appeal

5th April 2022

Over the last 3-weeks members and staff have been walking, running and cycling the equivalent distance of St John’s Chambers Bristol office to Mariinskyi Palace (the official residence of the Ukrainian President) in the centre of Kyiv.

The team have beaten their target distance and covered 2973km / 1847 miles and arrived in Kyiv today – well done everyone! 

We set ourselves a £5,000 target, and we are pleased to announce we have raised £6,258! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, we are extremely grateful for your generosity and helping us to beat our fundraising target.

All money raised will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Appeal.

  • £30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
  • £50 could provide blankets for four families
  • £100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month

We raised £445.40 from the sale of wristbands, and £487.50 from T Shirts.
