Here’s a diary date for next Monday – 16 November – in London… Starting 7pm the Bar Pro Bono Unit and sister free advice charity Z2K is running a charity fundraiser at the Inner Temple Hall. Highlights include a quiz hosted by Clive Anderson, with some excellent prizes plus a charity auction. The prizes include: Two week holiday at an apartment on the tropical island of Bequia + Tickets to the Wimbledon Championship Final + Private box at the Royal Opera House + London Eye Champagne Capsule Pod for 22 people + Tea with Lady Antonia Fraser < Yes Lady Antonia Fraser!
As part of the auction, the artist Isobel Williams (we’ve featured her work on the Insider website before) is offering to sketch the lucky bidder (and/or something else they’d like). Isobel adds “If you’re persuasive and provide biscuits I might throw in a free frame. (All the money goes to the charities, not me.) Just think how embarrassing it would be for everyone, especially me, if NO ONE bid. And, as both my parents are now dead, that’s quite likely!”
Bar Squared, developers of the LEX chambers management system for barristers are sponsors of the quiz.
