Chadwick Lawrence’s managing partner Neil Wilson has been named an official trustee of the Leeds Rhinos Foundation.
Wilson was invited to become a trustee of the rugby club’s official charity following the firm’s decade-long partnership with both Leeds Rhinos rugby club and the Foundation as their appointed legal partner.
The Foundation’s mantra is ‘Changing lives through Sport’, and it works to bridge gaps that exist within communities. With support from local businesses, trustees and the rugby club itself, it organises and runs a number of events to encourage young people from the local community to engage with sport. It also contributes towards a safer community by aiming to reduce health inequalities, supporting victims of domestic abuse, and helping to rehabilitate ex-offenders.
Fundraising events are held throughout the year by the Foundation, including partners, trustees and supporters taking part in the Leeds 10K run and a summer gala dinner.
Neil Wilson said: “Following a lengthy partnership with the club as their legal partner, I have seen the great work the Foundation does for the community, and it is an honor to be asked to help in a small way.
“I am looking forward to being able to provide support and guidance to the foundation employees, the other trustees, and of course the children and community members that we will be supporting.”
Bob Bowman QPM, chief operating officer of the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, said: “We are delighted that Neil is coming on board as a trustee for the Leeds Rhinos Foundation. We have worked with Chadwick Lawrence for a number of years and they already have a great understanding of how the Foundation fits in with the rest of the club.
“We are looking forward to growing this partnership with Neil and his firm.”
