Iain has since moved on to the role of Artistic director at Yorkshire Ballet Seminars, a charity providing a great platform to help develop and inspire a new generation of ballet dancers. He approached us again to ask if we would consider forming a ‘Tenet Compliance and Litigation Scholarship’ to fund places for talented young students aged 9-19 in the West Midlands to attend their annual summer residential school. These students would otherwise not be able to afford to attend this world-renowned school. We have been happy and proud to have so far sponsored 3 immensely talented young students since 2018.
The school is facing state funding cuts, which means resources and extracurricular activities that they provide are under threat. The school tentatively asked if any local businesses would sponsor them in return for marketing/advertising opportunities, openly admitting that it was not a glamorous opportunity! The funds raised will help the school retain its rich heritage of music, arts, forest school, cooking and many other extracurricular activities. While we are not perhaps reaching our potential clients, that’s okay, you never know and it’s nice to help!
No lawyer will tell you they can be truly paperless, frankly, it is not possible, but we realised we do not need to print everything we read and send. If we do need to print out for internal use, a client of ours suggested we try double sided A5. What do you know, it works just fine! Our letterheaded paper is also made from recycled paper.
