West and North Yorkshire branch of Resolution raises money for charity at Winter Ball

The West and North Yorkshire branch of Resolution, the community of family justice professionals, has raised money for charity at its Winter Ball.

On Friday 18 November the branch hosted the Winter Ball at the Marriott in Leeds for family law practitioners from the region, their clients and contacts.

The event was organised by the West and North Yorkshire Young Resolution committee which runs academic and social events throughout the year for Resolution members and other professionals. The ball was the final event of the year.

Amy Scollan, Chair of Young Resolution said: “I am thrilled that the West and North Yorkshire Young Resolution Committee organised what must have been the largest gathering of family lawyers in the region for a very long time. A great time was had by all, and I am looking forward to the event being repeated next year already.”

The event was sponsored by wealth management firm Brewin Dolphin. Matt Sullivan, Brewin Dolphin’s National Director for Professional Services said: “Brewin Dolphin were delighted to be joining the annual ball of the North & West Yorkshire committee of Resolution.

“It was a perfect means to express our gratitude to all the family law teams which had supported the research, development and testing of Brewin Dolphin’s new wealth management service for family lawyers and their high net worth clients. Without their assistance, we could not have created a service that is proving to be so valuable to family lawyers.”

Vice Young Resolution Chair, Laura Clapton said: “The event was a great opportunity for family law practitioners and their professional contacts to socialise and celebrate a fantastic community of family practitioners in the region. Importantly, the event raised money for two outstanding charities; Leeds Children’s Hospital and Voices in the Middle.”

A total of £1,237 was raised on the evening to be shared between the charities.

Resolution is a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way.
