Raising a glass of festive cheer with clients and friends
Blanchards Bailey is full of good cheer all year round, but especially at Christmas.
The team welcomed clients and friends from across Dorset to a festive celebration with drinks, canapés and a raffle, featuring prizes donated by some of the county’s well-loved companies.
The party was held at the firm’s office in Queen Mother Square, Poundbury, and was attended by more than 70 people who enjoyed the chance to chat over cocktails.
There was certainly cause for celebration for the legal experts as the firm has recently been recognised as a Legal 500 firm, meaning it is included in a national ranking for delivering ‘very good’ work across ‘all departments’.
Guests dug deep in their pockets and sales from the raffle tickets raised over £250 for Blandford Opportunity Group, Blanchards Bailey’s charity of the year.
The raffle prizes included a huge hamper of bath and cosmetics treats from Poole-based Lush; as well as a delicious hamper of food, donated by Meyers Estate Agents; a gift card from Blandford Brewery Hall and Woodhouse; and a morning on the gallops, provided by local racehorse trainer Nick Mitchell.
Merlin Lewis, principal and head of Blanchards Bailey’s Dorchester office, said: "We greatly enjoyed being able to invite our guests along for a special Christmas celebration. It was fantastic to celebrate the end of another successful year with people alongside whom we work.”
