Coffin Mew Goes Back To School… For One Day Only!
Leading regional law firm Coffin Mew sent a dozen of its brightest legal minds back to school in Winchester – to help revamp Shepherd’s Down School’s classrooms.
The firm first got involved with the special school seven years ago when Partner Peter Fellows began volunteering as a classroom assistant. He has since gone on to become a Governor of the school and Coffin Mew’s re-decorating has become an annual endeavour.
This year, 12 members of the Commercial Property team visited the school to give a much-needed freshen up to its classrooms.
Peter, who orchestrated the activity, commented: “Shepherd’s Down School first came to our attention nearly a decade ago when my daughter did her work experience at the school. It is a wonderful place, catering for the very wide-ranging needs of pupils from across Winchester and wider Hampshire, and we are delighted to be able to help the school each year.
“Our team are surprisingly handy with a paintbrush, so for us, this is a great opportunity to give back to the local community. It’s a nice team bonding effort too!”
