Picture of Christmas

7 December 2018

Staff in the Edinburgh office of national law firm, Shoosmiths have got behind the lens in aid of a Scottish charity this Christmas.

Twenty-five employees were among several hundred colleagues from the firm’s 11 UK-wide offices to capture eye-catching photographs. Internal voting by staff in each location determined the favourite submission, with one image from each office incorporated into a special 2019 Shoosmiths desk-top calendar.

Peter Duff, Chairman of Shoosmiths and Claire Rowe (CEO) voted for the twelfth image. It is the first time that the business has produced a charity calendar that incorporates images taken by staff.

Proceeds raised by employee purchases of the special £5 calendar in Scotland will be donated to the registered charity, Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH).

In Edinburgh, Anisa Doubell, who joined in April as a CSA, submitted her office’s winning photograph of Edinburgh city centre during the festive season.

Janette Speed, partner and head of Shoosmiths office in Edinburgh, said: “Many congratulations to all the winners, including Anisa Doubell whose eye-catching image of Edinburgh during the festive season certainly caught the eye.”
