gunnercooke partner Michele Price has successfully registered the groundbreaking charity The Baton of Hope UK, ahead of the national tour of the specially designed Baton. The Baton begins its journey throughout the UK to Downing Street on 25 June as part of the biggest suicide awareness and prevention initiative ever seen in this country.

Michele Price, specialist Charity & Philanthropy solicitor, worked closely with the senior registrations team at the Charity Commission to establish a unique umbrella organisation spearheading the mission to save lives by working together. 

Michele commented: “While registration is an important milestone on the nationwide relay of the Baton, the ultimate target is preventing suicide and gunnercooke has been humbled to support the charity in getting out of the starting blocks with that lifesaving ambition”.
