DENTONS, the world’s largest law firm, netted close to £8,000 for two employee-nominated charities at its annual fundraising ball in Glasgow this autumn – the first time the event has been held since 2019 due to Covid19 pandemic restrictions.

Attended by more than 100 Dentons employees from across Scotland, the masquerade ball held at Citation Glasgow (housed, fittingly, in a former Sheriff Court building) saw a grand total of £7,910 raised through raffle tickets and event ticket sales.

The funds will be equally shared between youth mental health charity Tiny Changes, nominated by staff in Dentons’ Edinburgh office, and Beatson Cancer Charity, chosen by employees based at Dentons’ Glasgow office.

Claire Armstrong, Dentons’ Scotland Managing Partner, who gave a speech at the gala evening,said: “This was the first time in a long while that Dentons has been able to hold this fabulous annual fundraiser event given all the pandemic restrictions over the past couple of years. It was wonderful to see so many people there enjoying themselves, for some meeting new colleagues and for others, catching up with old friends. I’m thrilled we managed to raise such a magnificent amount for our two chosen charities, and it was a pleasure meeting Katie and Joyce and their teams and hearing a bit more about the charities. My huge thanks to everyone for their generosity and to our social and charities teams for organising it. We are already looking forward to next year’s event!”

Tiny Changes Community Lead Katie Bruce said: “Tiny Changes are working with young people across Scotland to transform mental health care and support. The support of Dentons colleagues at their Masquerade Ball this year means the world – and we truly could not support so many children and young people’s mental health without the support of people like colleagues at Dentons, we could not be here to help young minds feel better. Thank you to all at Dentons!”

Joyce Ross, corporate partnerships manager at Beatson Cancer Charity, said: “We are so grateful to Dentons for their continued support. The team have raised an amazing amount of money for us at their ball, which will allow us to help more families across the west of Scotland who are facing cancer. We are looking forward to working with the team at Dentons Glasgow as their nominated charity partner over the next year.”
