New Birmingham office charity: Autism West Midlands
Staff nominate Autism West Midlands as office charity
Rayner Grice, partner and head of the Birmingham office, said:
“Corporate Social responsibility is vitally important to us at Clarke Willmott in Birmingham. We have had the good fortune to have worked in partnership with some amazing charities over the years, and we are delighted that going forward our new charity of the year will be Autism West Midlands.
Our ethos is to support charities that operate in the communities around our offices, and our commitment will not be just to raise funds for them, but to be as actively involved as we can in volunteering and supporting the important work they do in enriching the lives of autistic people and those who love and care for them.
Our first event in supporting them will be our annual charity quiz on 2 March 2020, and we look forward to introducing our clients to the charity on that night”
