Clarke Willmott extends charity support
Clarke Willmott has pledged to extend its support for five of its office charities: The Bristol offices Duchenne UK, Cardiff offices homelessness charity Llamau, Southampton offices SERV Wessex and Taunton offices Pancreatic Cancer UK and Somerset Accident Voluntary Emergency Services (SAVES) after fundraising activities were seriously curtailed over the last two years due to the pandemic.
The firm has now announced it will continue support for these charities until 2023 to make up for lost time.
Clarke Willmott staff have, in the past, held regular events throughout the year to raise money for their office charities including dress down days, bake sales, raffles, first Friday drinks and tuck shops. Each office would also plan its own additional activities such as quizzes, local group challenges, golf days, team and individual staff challenges including runs, skydives and triathlons.
Phillip Edwards, a partner in the serious injury team and head of the firm’s CSR, said:
“We’re delighted to have extended our support until 2023. The circumstances of the past two years have meant that we were unable to hold any of the usual in-office fundraising activities and we didn’t want the charities to be short-changed. Corporate Social Responsibility is vitally important to us at Clarke Willmott in all our offices. We have had the good fortune to have worked in partnership with some amazing charities over the years and we were really looking forward to supporting our charitable partners. All charities have been hit extremely hard by the pandemic so we will do our best to help financially and in any other way we can.”
