Hello my name is Eleanor Lowes and I am a student at Bishop Luffa Sixth Form. I am part of the Bar Mock Trial team at my Sixth Form along with 14 other pupils. We previously won the regional heat in Guildford in November and have been invited to represent the South East of England at the national finals in Edinburgh in late March. The Bar National Mock competition aims to give young people an insight into the workings of the British legal system, involving over 2000 students, 200 barristers/advocates and around 90 judges from all over England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The competition is run by the Young Citizens charity, who give pupils such as myself an opportunity to learn more about law, including learning about the individual roles in court, which provides students a valuable experience.
We are very excited for this trip, however the cost of attending is quite large. We are aiming to fundraise a sum of £4500 to cover the cost of transport and accommodation for all 15 students on the team. As this is a large amount we would appreciate it if you would consider donating to our GoFundMe page in order to help the team get to Edinburgh for the national finals. https://www.gofundme.com/bar-mock-trial-finals-bishop-luffa
Please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions regarding the Bar Mock Trials or our trip in March. The team’s email address is BishopluffaBMT@gmail.com
Again, the team would be grateful for any contributions that you may be able to donate towards our trip.
We sincerely thank you for your help.
on behalf of the Bishop Luffa Bar Mock Trial team
