Firms’ Monopoly-style grand day out brings in much-needed £1k for Bristol homeless shelter

July 29, 2019

Five Bristol firms have taken part in a city-wide Monopoly-style challenge to raise more than £1,000 for the Julian Trust night shelter.

The charity event was organised by Bristol law firm Meade King and involved the firms’ teams visiting Bristol landmarks and competing in various challenges enroute.

These included taking selfies at St Mary Redcliffe Church, Clifton Suspension Bridge, the SS Great Britain and Bristol Old Vic.

Points were also awarded for using as many different forms of transport as possible and sourcing food and clothing donations for the Julian Trust.

Taking part were staff from CS2 Chartered Surveyors, TFT property consultants and accountancy firms Milsted Langdon and Dunkley’s – whose team was crowed as overall winner.

The Julian Trust, Meade King’s charity of the year, runs the emergency night shelter in central Bristol for rough sleepers.

Trust board member Sarah Christopher said: “On behalf of all the volunteers, and of course our guests at Julian Trust, I’d like to thank everyone at Meade King who took part in the Monopoly challenge.

“Being wholly funded by donations, it is events like this that enable us to continue to provide the services we do.”

Meade King property team partner Heidi Bateman added: “We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part in our challenge in aid of the wonderful Julian Trust and congratulations to the winners Dunkley’s.

“The Julian Trust night shelter is staffed and managed by volunteers and relies on voluntary donations of food and money to run. So we want to raise as much money as possible during the coming year to help keep this vital service running.”

Meade King is nationally recognised for the high-quality commercial and regulatory advice it provides to dentists and other healthcare providers and also advises a wide range of commercial organisations including care homes, pharmacies, GP surgeries and technology businesses.

In addition, the single-office firm’s lawyers have particular expertise in areas such as commercial property, business sales and acquisitions, construction contracts, dispute resolution and employment law.
