Funds Raised for Anti Human Trafficking

An impressive £13,000 has been raised by the Tumbling Lassie Ball, a charity event organised by a group of advocates in honour of the central character in a 17th Century court case.

Hastie Stable's Alan McLean, QC, came across the little-known case by chance, and he formed the Tumbling Lassie Committee with fellow advocates, Patricia Comiskey, Maryam Labaki, Eric Robertson, Janys Scott, QC, and Iain Mitchell, QC, to celebrate the case and to raise funds for modern efforts to end slavery and to help its victims.

The Ball was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Edinburgh, and Mr McLean said: “We have been inspired by the level of support we have had from within the legal profession and from those outside it – we are delighted to have been involved in raising this much money for these worthy causes.”
