Trinity Proud to Support the Zambezi Sunrise Trust


The barristers and staff at Trinity Chambers are delighted to support the work of the Zambezi Sunrise Trust featured in a recent edition of Counsel Magazine.

The trust is dedicated to the advancement of education and the relief of poverty, sickness and distress in Zambia. The charity provides ongoing support through the provision of buildings, books, student needs, teaching materials, uniforms, sports and musical equipment, hygiene products and nutritional support. Whilst the Trust’s main focus is on children, it also supports women’s groups enabling them to provide for themselves and their children.

Teesside barrister and founding trustee of the charity, John Gillette highlights his trip to Zambia earlier this year in the Counsel Magazine article. He has coordinated an ongoing fundraising project among the Bar for a project to build a classroom. This will be the first real classroom that the children using it have ever had. The children have been selected by the community to attend the school based on their vulnerability with nearly two thirds having lost at least one parent. The photo shows children from Grade 3 laying the first block of the new school. 

The fundraising initiative entitled ‘Class Action’ is on track to reach it's £10,000 target, largely with contributions from barristers and chambers in London and the North Eastern and Midland Circuits.
