Insurance broking and risk management advisers JLT Specialty in Nottingham has announced it is to be a “gold sponsor” of a forthcoming charity event to raise money for Help a Nottingham Child, the official charity of the Galleries of Justice.
The 1920’s themed evening takes place on Thursday 19 March 2015.
Nicola Burley, Executive Director of the Galleries of Justice Museum, explained: “We are holding our fundraising dinner in memory of a very dear friend and supporter of our charity, Pauline Tutt who died before Christmas. We know that she would have loved to have been with us on this occasion and she would have entered into the spirit of our 1920s themed dinner – complete with feather boa! She most certainly would have enjoyed the live music and entertainment. We shall all be raising a glass to her.
Pauline was a great advocate of our fundraising campaign: Help a Nottinghamshire Childis a pioneering campaign which aims to provide free citizenship and legal education to children living in Nottingham City and County. The purpose of ‘Help a Nottinghamshire Child’ is to teach all young people about the law and what happens if they break the law, the consequences of their actions on the wider community and about the careers available to them within the justice system. This fundraising campaign allows schools to access vital education… free of charge!
The education programmes and resources are provided by the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law (NCCL) at the Galleries of Justice Museum, and they are designed to help develop young people’s understanding of the law and how to live within it; preventing and reducing crime through early intervention and preventative education. For example: – 56 students from the Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Worksop recently visited the museum and took part in a Crime and Punishment tour, a mock arrest, a mock trial and also some object handling.

Sally Swann, who is the head of the Nottingham Risk Practice said: ‘The Nottingham office of JLT Specialty opened in 2012 and we have benefited enormously from the support we have received from the business community. Sponsoring this event is our way of giving something back to those who have contributed to our success, whilst also helping a very worthwhile cause.”
