On Thursday 10th May 2018 we were invited to the 2018 Herbert Smith Freehills Pro Bono and Community Awards. HSF have been our business partners for almost 20 years and in that time they have read with our children, played chess and provided lots of exciting opportunities for us all (they have hosted certificate ceremonies, allowed us to use their amazing offices for meetings, as well as funded special events in school). It was great to see Sharon Gates be recognised for her significant contribution in organising the partners for Thomas Buxton Primary as well as doing her very busy job at the law firm. Ms Redpath and Mrs Bahar were also thanked for their part in making Reading and Chess Partners so valuable for our children and fun for the HSF staff too. It was a very special occasion for everyone.
