Our 2023 Charity Partner

Our chosen charity partner for the 2023 Irish Law Awards is Calcutta Run, which has raised over €4.6 mission in 22 years, helping countless homeless young people both at home and abroad through the Peter McVerry Trust and The Hope Foundation.

In January 1999, its founding members approached the Law Society to explore ways of bringing the legal profession together to create an annual fundraising event to support homeless children in Ireland and in Calcutta.

Spurred by the success of the inaugural run in 1999, the event has grown from strength to strength including three editions of the Calcutta Run Cycle Sportive (2017 to 2019).

Over 1,000 people took part virtually throughout Ireland within their 5k limit in 2020. The generosity seen in 2020 was unparalleled and beyond expectations with €285,000 being raised to help alleviate homelessness in Ireland and Kolkata, an incredible achievement and something to be proud of by the legal profession. We want to match last year’s success to raise vital funds for the Peter McVerry Trust and The Hope Foundation. With extra effort from all the firms and individuals involved we think we can do it!
