[PRESSWIRE] London, United Kingdom - 08.08.2014 -- Members of Legal Aid Law firm Duncan Lewis Solicitors will be holding a “Football Aid” charity football match to raise money to contribute to the relief effort in Gaza and Humanitarian Aid.

Duncan Lewis is the largest Civil Legal Aid provider in the UK. Some of the key areas of law that the firm specialise in are Immigration and Human Rights. The firm are committed to upholding the Rule of Law and the rights of vulnerable people in the UK.

The firm are deeply concerned at the humanitarian crisis currently happening in Gaza and will be holding a charity football match at Wembley Power League in a bid to raise funds to help with the relief effort and Humanitarian Aid for the people of Gaza on 15th August 2014.

Toufique Hossain, Public Law Director and Solicitor at Duncan Lewis said, “We would like to raise as much money as possible for the people of Gaza. Here in the UK, we take for granted that we can play football without the fear of being shot dead. Sadly, the children of Gaza do not have that luxury. Raising money for the survivors of this crisis is the least we can do.”
