Trethowans has raised more than £15,000 for local charities and its staff and partners have donated an additional £19,000 in free legal services in the last year.
Bake sales, sponsored runs, raffles and dress down days are just some of the ways the award-winning law firm helped local worthy causes as part of its drive to support the communities it works in.
In Salisbury Trethowans raised an impressive £3,877.62 for Salisbury Trust for the Homeless. Meanwhile in Poole, £3,774.86 was raised for Julia’s House and in Bournemouth £3,600.89 went to Wooden Spoon.
In Southampton, Trethowans donated £6,659.84 to Rainbow Trust through fundraising and the provision of free legal services. Its expert commercial litigation team also lent its professional services to the charity to recover a debt worth more than £12,000.
Across the region, the firm carried out around £19,000 worth of pro bono work over the last year, donating legal services and time to support charities, community groups, sports clubs and individuals across the region.
A further £716.65 was donated by the firm to support the charitable work of Trethowans’ members of staff in carrying out their own charitable endeavours.
Laura Towey, who heads up the firm’s charity committee, said: “We’re absolutely over the moon with the amount that’s been raised. Staff love getting stuck in and coming up with their own ideas to help local causes and it has so many benefits. Not only does it help support local charities, but it also brings employees together to work on rewarding projects.”
Managing partner Chris Whiteley added: “As a business that’s been part of the region for more than 150 years, we firmly believe in supporting groups and organisations around us. As we continue to grow, so too does the amount we’re able to raise for charity and that’s very rewarding.”
