Thanks to the efforts of Employees at Wilson Browne Solicitors alongside the generosity of clients and contacts, they were able to raise £750 at a recent golf day, now donated to Northamptonshire Community Foundation’s Surviving Winter Appeal. The money raised will go on to help transform the lives of vulnerable older people and communities in Northamptonshire.
At a charity golf day attended by local businesses, clients and other contacts, the firm raised £750 through the generosity of those attending. The firm runs a number of charity events as part of its commitment to giving something back to the community. As well as supporting national charities, Wilson Browne consciously tries to support local causes as well. The event, held at Whittlebury Hall, was attended by 60 guests who made charitable donations not just through attending but through other activities throughout the day.
Wilson Browne Solicitors has a long standing relationship with Northamptonshire Community Foundation and recognises the invaluable work it does in supporting local causes.
Speaking of their efforts, Jennifer Laskey, Partner at Wilson Browne Solicitors, said: “We’re overwhelmed with the response we had for the charity golf day and would like to say a huge thank you to all those who took part. Our employees and clients enjoyed the day greatly, and their help and support has enabled us to make this donation to Northamptonshire
Community Foundation’s Surviving Winter Appeal. Knowing that we’ve raised £750 is a fantastic feeling. Northamptonshire Community Foundation provides much needed and often life changing grants to some of the county’s most vulnerable and in need people.
During last winter overall, the Foundation raised nearly £20,000. These funds helped reduce social isolation and support vulnerable people, with funds distributed directly to individuals as well as local organisations dedicated to helping the elderly and vulnerable within the county. The provision of ‘Keep Warm’ packs, hot meals and social activities at local centres, helping to keep homes warmer by undertaking maintenance tasks and providing Thermos flasks for hot drinks are just a few examples of how the funds were used.
This year we have partnered with the Big Give Christmas Challenge, an online match challenge, to help increase funds for our appeal. Donations made online between 12 noon on 27 November and 12 noon 4 December have the opportunity to be doubled with match funds, until match funds are exhausted.
