We have had various mentions recently in a number of Blogs.
Chris Sherliker of our Corporate Sponsors, Silverman Sherliker, features our blogging in his excellent Blawg Review #243: Fighting Back: A Festive Meditation for Lawyers. Chris says:-
Brian Inkster is another lawyer who is fighting back, in true Churchillian spirit, this time against homelessness in Argentina….and not just by raising a phenomenal amount of money for the Habitat For Humanity cause. He actually carved time out from his busy and successful law practice in Scotland to go to Argentina himself and get building with his own bare hands, complete with hard hat and impressive boots that he broke in by wearing them to the office before he went. You can read the whole story of the fight from the links on yesterday’s Argentina compendium blog-post. To The Noble Inkster (aka ‘Lord of the Dance’), we say …
…keep on dancing, brother!
Wikizine, the online magazine of Wikivorce contained a full feature on our time in Argentina in their latest edition:-
Wikizine brings you an update on it's September report: ‘Scottish Solicitors to Build Homes for Charity’.
The Scottish Solicitor in question, Brian Inkster, and his wife, Nicola Walls, returned from Argentina earlier this month having completed their Global Village Challenge for Habitat for Humanity. Brian now tells Wikizine about the experience...
Michael Scutt kicks of the very first UK Lawyers Blog of Blogs: Its not Blawg Review with great style and wit. He includes our blogging:-
In November Brian and his wife went to Argentina to do something real and helped build houses for families living in poverty, as part of the Habitat for Humanity programme. He blogged on the work they did in the 22nd de Enero neighbourhood, which is 24kms from the centre of Buenos Aires, but three hours (!) travel. He got involved in serious building work, like building a wall, and more mundane stuff like painting walls. I was inspired by the personal commitment he and his wife made in pursuing a very challenging project. This also included learning Spanish (although Brian is still struggling with English grammar apparently and as a filthy sassenach I daren’t make any further comment) as well as leaving their own comfort zones well and truly behind. Brian is a keen user of Twitter and used it to raise money for the Argentine challenge. Have a read of this post if in any doubt about the usefulness of Twitter.
The first Scottish Roundup of the year: Happy New Year mentions some end of year reviews including Brian Inkster's "fascinating review of his project building homes for those living in poverty in Argentina".
Thanks to all these fellow bloggers for the kind mentions and for raising awareness of the the work Habitat for Humanity is doing in Argentina.
