Welcome Jorrit!

Jorrit copySince September, Jorrit Donner-Wittkopf (pictured right) has been volunteering with HCLC every Monday evening after school.

Jorrit, who is 14 years old, lives in Hackney and attends the City of London Boys School.

Jorrit got in touch with the Law Centre about becoming a volunteer because he says he finds law very interesting and he also wanted to carry out some voluntary work as part of his efforts to obtain his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.

At HCLC, Jorrit enjoys working on the reception desk, answering phone calls and welcoming visitors to the Centre.  Jorrit has also assisted the lawyers with their filing and says he is looking forward to going to court to observe HCLC fight a case.

HCLC Administrator Bella said: “I think it’s wonderful that Jorrit is doing his Duke Of Edinburgh Award and that Hackney Community Law Centre is involved in helping him to achieve it“.
