‘Tis the season to be jolly

Here comes the festive season hot on the heels of the general election. It is hard to feel particularly jolly this year with all the party manifestos falling short on some of the things lawyers hold dear such as supporting access to justice and laying down clear policies to actually tackle funding long term care. I realise there are plenty of other injustices, underfunding and climate change to worry about too.

However, if we look around, good things do happen, usually because of a local hero or two who see a problem and find a way of helping.

From your twitter posts clearly many of you hold coffee mornings, cake sales and other big fundraising events to help local and national charities. Many of you will be exhausted due to producing hundreds of Wills during November for people using Will Aid and Remember a Charity to give legacies to the participating charities.

To all of you, my thanks for helping to make it a better world.
