SOLICITOR Rebecca Antony is swapping her law book for her recipe book to help bake some treats to help vulnerable people seeking legal advice.

Rebecca works at Mosshaselhurst Solicitors in Northwich, which is teaming up with the North West Legal Support Trust to take part in its Great Legal Bake.

The firm will be holding a bake sale at their Castle Street offices to raise money for charities providing free legal advice in the north west.

This year’s Great Legal Bake runs from February 20 to 22, and staff at Mosshaselhurst are baking cakes to sell at the offices on Wednesday, February 22.

The offices will be open from 9am to 5.15pm, and donations will be invited for items from the mouth-watering selection on offer.

“The North West Legal Support Trust aims to help the poorest and most vulnerable people in our community to obtain access to justice,” said Rebecca.

“Since the cuts in legal aid in 2013, funding for free legal advice centres has dramatically reduced.

“Grants from the Legal Support Trusts help thousands of people seeking legal assistance such as families living in terrible housing conditions, elderly people needing support to continue to live independently, women and children trafficked to the UK, people who suffer illness/disability and their carers, those unfairly dismissed or discriminated against at work and workers paid less than the minimum wage.

“We already have seven members of staff who have agreed to bake for the sale, so be sure to come along to our offices on February 22 to sample the delicious cakes on offer.

“All donations are gratefully received, and all our supporters will be entered into a prize draw, with a chance to win a luxury hamper.”
