It has reached Tulkinghorn's ears that a group of 53 Wragge & Co lawyers, and their families and friends made a bizarre personal tribute to 1960s musical The Sound of Music recently. Led by incumbent senior partner John Crabtree, the group took part in a Traverse the Alps Challenge. But before you fear for their sanity, it was all for the good cause of raising money for Sense, a UK charity for the deaf and blind. The group managed to find Europe's only July snow blizzards and had to share mixed dormitories with just three showers between 53 people. However, despite such hardships, managing partner and senior partner elect Quentin Poole once again demonstrated his leadership qualities by taking a copy of The Lawyer up the mountain to keep up the troops' morale. So far the group has raised more than £104,000 from sponsors that include Bond Pearce, Burges Salmon, Dickson Minto, Gateley Wareing, Hammonds and Middleton Drummer. Tulkinghorn has heard that even Hammonds' Chris Jones dipped into his pockets, donating £2,000. Anyone who want wants to help Wragges towards the fundraising target of £150,000 should send cheques made payable to Sense to Gail Smith at Wragges.
