• Brachers Partner and head of the firm’s Elderly and Vulnerable team, Mary Rimmer, has triumphed at the Kent Law Society Awards 2022, winning the ‘Contribution to the Community Award.’

    Mary is a passionate charity supporter, and in addition to her involvement on the firm’s Community Relations Committee and the firm’s Charity Sector team, holds a number of charitable roles outside of work. These include trustee positions at Spadework and Maidstone Mencap. She is also a Dementia Friends Champion for the Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Dementia Friends’ programme.

    Last year Mary took part in the Cycle for Dementia challenge, cycling 250 miles in 30 days, raising £475. She also completed the two-week 250km cycling challenge (the equivalent of London to Paris) for Macmillan Cancer Research, raising £175 for the charity.

    Mary was on the judging panel of the Kent Charity Awards 2021/21, and is on the judging team again for the 2022 awards. She has also recently been recognised as ‘next generation partner’ in the area of charities and not-for-profit in The Legal 500’s 2022 rankings.

    Brachers Managing Partner, Joanna Worby, said: “I so proud of Mary’s achievement in winning this award, particularly as the standard of entries were so high this year. Mary dedicates much of her time to charity work and has been instrumental in rolling out Dementia Friends training to the firm. She is a credit to Brachers and it’s wonderful to see her recognised in these awards.”

    Mary commented: “It is such an honour to be recognised by Kent Law Society in these awards. They did a wonderful job of delivering an event to highlight and celebrate the achievements of the legal profession in Kent over the last year.”

    The award winners were announced at the Annual Kent Law Society Dinner on 13 May, which featured guest speaker Robert Rinder MBE, star of ITV’s Judge Rinder.

    The ceremony also marked the end of Brachers Partner Alexandra Gordon’s term as Kent Law Society President. Nick Fairweather will be taking up the role of President for the coming year.
