This special award will be given to an individual who has responded to an immediate need and significantly affected the life or lives of others.  This may be someone who has rescued a person from a dangerous situation or shown courage to help another in difficulty. This could also include someone who has bravely faced tragic or devastating personal circumstances and gone on to make a positive difference to the lives of others.

About The Pride of Bath Awards

We hear a lot about the big society these days, but our city has always been enhanced by people who think nothing of doing something for others. These awards are all about thanking them for what they do and giving them the credit they deserve.

The 8 categories of awards recognise those people who go above and beyond the call of duty, those who care for others and their communities and those who have been involved in remarkable acts of bravery.

The Awards ceremony takes place on the 14th April at Bath Racecourse.  Please show your support by following the event on Twitter and celebrate the Award Winners using the hashtag

Slater & Gordon, the heavily bankrolled new entrant to the UK legal services market who bought Quindell’s professional services arm in the UK for $1.3bnAUD one year ago, has now lost its newly appointed in-house counsel, Moana Weir, after two months.

The departure comes as Slater & Gordon have until the end of the week to assure its bankers that it has found a way to service its $741mAUD net-debt position.  This comes on the back of a $958mAUD 6 month loss reported in February, a 95% decrease in share price over 12 months, a write-down of the Quindell acquisition to almost nothing, and a glut of class-action lawsuits from investors related to bad acquisitions.

If Slater & Gordon are unable to find a way to reassure their financiers, their loans will fall payable within twelve months.

Slater & Gordon's high profile UK acquisitions include: Quindell Legal Services, Claims Direct, Fentons, Goodmans, Pannone, Pickering & Partners, Russell Jones & Walker, Taylor Vintners.
