On 6th July the gates of Aldershot Garrison were opened to the public as the week-long Aldershot Military Festival reached its pinnacle with a family open-day, and BakerLaw is proud to have been an official sponsor of the event.
Formerly known as 'The Army Show', the event allowed representatives from the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and the Army to showcase their equipment and skills whilst providing visitors with hands-on demonstrations.
The various activities and attractions saw around 18,000 visitors attend the festival which was no doubt helped by the sunny weather.
Representatives from BakerLaw were on hand throughout the day to provide legal advice and discuss general law-related queries as well as facilitate our very own 'pin the wig on the judge' game which proved to be a real success with both children and adults alike.
Members of the BakerLaw team were also proud to take the opportunity of presenting former Coldstream Guardsman Franco Gasparotti with a cheque for £1,000.00 as a contribution to his fundraising efforts for life changing surgery following substantial weight-loss after suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Associate Director of BakerLaw Amanda Glover said; "Our firm has always had strong ties with the military, both serving personnel and their families and ex-servicemen and women. We are proud to have supported this fantastic event to show our appreciation for the sacrifices our forces make on a daily basis"
