Bell Gully releases eighth Pro Bono and Community report
Monday 24 July 2017
New Zealand’s communities are supported by a diverse range of charitable organisations, many of which have come up with inventive approaches to address areas of need.
At Bell Gully we support these initiatives in the best way we can – by providing free legal advice – so charities can direct their resources towards helping our local communities thrive. Last year, the value of our pro bono work exceeded our NZ$1 million fee equivalent budget.
In this, our eighth issue of A Helping Hand, we highlight the achievements of some of the charities we have worked with over the past year, including:
- Food, Farms and Freshwater (3F), working on protecting New Zealand’s waterways from unsustainable farming practices,
- Satisfy Food Rescue, re-distributing food that would otherwise be wasted, to those in need,
- Asia New Zealand Foundation, working to promote better Asia-New Zealand relations,
- Wellington Pasifika Patrol, dedicated to improving relationships between Pasifika people and the Police,
- Vodafone New Zealand Foundation, realising the potential of marginalised youth, and
- CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Research, funding research into a cure for spinal cord injuries.
