In 2012-13 we were the Liverpool Regional Corporate Sponsors for the road safety charity Brake. We were involved in an educational event during Road Safety Week in November 2012 to highlight the dangers of drink-driving. The educational event took place at Litherland High School in Liverpool and involved a live demonstration of road accident rescue techniques by members of Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service.
To celebrate the rich, cultural diversity of our city in 2012 we sponsored Brazilica - the UK’s biggest Samba festival which took place in Liverpool. Several of our staff participated in the Carnival Queen Parade, joining the main parade through Liverpool City Centre, which also featured our own Canter Levin & Berg carnival float.
With over 150 years of the Liverpool Irish community, heritage and migration, we are also keen to promote the ‘cultural corridor’ that links Liverpool and Ireland. With this in mind, in 2012 and 2013 Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors sponsored the Liverpool Irish Festival. In 2014 our sponsorship of the festival continues.
In 2013 we sponsored the Liverpool Rose competition, a regional event taking place as part of the International Rose of Tralee festival. The winning entrant from the Liverpool Rose event, Lisa O'Halloran, travelled to Ireland to take part in the Rose of Tralee Regional event. We're pleased to say that Lisa was one of the 32 finalists picked to enter the last stage of the competition, televised live in August, the selection of the overall Rose of Tralee.
Canter Levin & Berg are sponsoring the Liverpool Schools Law & Citizenship Web, an initiative which introduces local pupils to the legal system and those who work within it. The initiative also helps pupils to learn that laws bring repsonsiblities as well as rights, by looking at current news stories to examine the legal issues they raise. Through our sponsorship all the local schools involved have been able to access the materials on the Liverpool Schools Law and Citizenship Website for use in their lessons.
In May 2014 we sponsored sports jackets for 30 youngsters at St Laurence's Primary School in Kirkby. The all-weather jackets, emblazoned with the school’s logo, will allow youngsters to take part in netball, football, rugby, cross-country running and other sports competitions.
We are a sponsor of the Liverpool-based John Mitchels GAA football team. John Mitchels are the most successful GAA team based outside of the island of Ireland, reaching the finals of the All-Ireland Junior Championships twice, most recently in February 2015. In addition to sponsoring the team, Sean Carty, one of our Employment Law Solicitors, also plays for the side.
As part of World Book Night 2013, we teamed up with Waterstone's the book shop to hold a free book giveaway at one of their stores in Liverpool. The books, picked by the staff at Waterstones and sponsored by us, were given away to members of the public on the night.
