Charity and Community

We are committed to supporting both our local communities and charities through direct financial support, volunteering and other activities.

To help achieve these aspirations the firm encourages staff to take advantage of:

  • A paid for volunteering day to help either their local community or charity of their choice, and
  • Certain match funding that we provide for staff that are raising funds for their chosen charity

Additionally the firm also supports our local communities by working with educational partnerships to offer young people work experience and we encourage staff to go in to schools to assist with business skills days etc.

Our two chosen charities for 2018/19

The firm’s collective focus for fund raising activities this year will centre around two charities.  Sadly in 2017 the firm lost two colleagues to illness and therefore our focus of fund raising this year will be to support charities improving the lives of those living with similar diseases and their families.    

Myeloma UK

One of the main goals of Myeloma UK is to raise awareness of myeloma – the second most common form of blood cancer.  Myeloma is incurable but often successfully treatable, however, one in five myeloma patients will see their GP five or more times before being referred to a specialist and therefore raising awareness of this cancer is key to ensuring an early diagnosis so that people living with myeloma can live longer and healthier lives.

Myeloma UK was set up to support everyone affected by myeloma, and is committed to finding a cure.  The charity uses funds raised to:

  • Invest in research,
  • Educate healthcare professionals,
  • Provide patient advocacy, and
  • Offer patient information and support
