Supporting young people in Worcestershire is the theme for Harrison Clark Rickerbys Charitable Trust’s donations this winter – the trust has sponsored the Tryangle Awards which recognise young volunteers across the county, and has also helped former Worcestershire school pupils reach their fundraising target for the Worcestershire Breast Cancer Haven.
Former pupils and staff from the Christopher Whitehead Girls School raised more than £1,000 for the breast cancer unit at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital, which opened earlier this year, but they had aimed for £1,200, so Harrison Clark Rickerbys Charitable Trust topped up the fund to the required amount.
The firm has provided support for the unit before, as it has for the Tryangle Awards, which have now been running for 12 years. They make awards for bravery, personal achievement in arts and music, being good friends and carers, for citizenship and environment, personal development, a volunteer leader and achievement in sports.
This year, the Trust has made a £200 donation in sponsorship of the one of the award categories -the awards will be presented in March next year at a ceremony at Worcester Bosch.
Phil Street, the charity’s manager, said: “I’m delighted that the trust has supported us again; many of our award winners have volunteered to help others in spite of their own difficulties, and we feel very strongly that their efforts should be recognised and rewarded.”
Mat Waddington, chair of the HCRCT, said: “We are committed to supporting charities in the Three Counties and I am very glad, as my own specialism is children’s law, that we can support young people with our donations.”
Harrison Clark Rickerbys has 420 staff and partners based at offices in Worcester, Cheltenham, the Wye Valley, Hereford, Birmingham and the Thames Valley, who provide a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients, regionally and nationwide. The firm also has a number of highly successful teams specialising in individual market sectors, including health and social care, education, agricultural and rural affairs, defence, security and the forces, and construction.
