Firm Charity of the Year

Every year we give our people the opportunity to vote for a charity which the firm can support with fundraising activities for the year ahead. We also strive to increase awareness of the charity and their work not only to staff but also to our clients.

Founded in 2009, our dedicated CSR Committee organises a programme of fundraising events to support the firm Charity of the Year.  These activities include our annual Christmas Fair, cake sales, pub quiz, guided walks, bike rides as well as a range of other activities throughout the year.

For 2022-23, we are delighted to support PAPYRUS as our official Charity of the Year.
