Bell Gully releases eighth Pro Bono and Community report

Monday 24 July 2017

​​​New Zealand’s communities are supported by a diverse range of charitable organisations, many of which have come up with inventive approaches to address areas of need. 

​​At Bell Gully we support these initiatives in the best way we can - by providing free legal advice - so charities can direct their resources towards helping our local communities thrive. Last year, the value of our pro bono work exceeded our NZ$1 million fee equivalent budget.

In this, our eighth issue of A Helping Hand, we highlight the achievements of some of the charities we have worked with over the past year, including:

  • Food, Farms and Freshwater (3F), working on protecting New Zealand’s waterways from unsustainable farming practices,

  • Satisfy Food Rescue, re-distributing food that would otherwise be wasted, to those in need,

  • Asia New Zealand Foundation, working to promote better Asia-New Zealand relations,

  • Wellington Pasifika Patrol, dedicated to improving relationships between Pasifika people and the Police,

  • Vodafone New Zealand Foundation, realising the potential of marginalised youth, and

  • CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Research, funding research into a cure for spinal cord injuries.
