KIND-HEARTED LAW FIRM DONATES TO WORCESTERSHIRE CHARITY TRIO

Home / News & Opportunities / Member News

Date: 29/03/2017

A Worcestershire law firm has donated almost £600 to three local charities as part of its ongoing fundraising efforts.

Staff at mfg Solicitors held events throughout the past 12 months for the three county charities – St Richard’s Hospice, Primrose Hospice and Wyre Forest’s St Basils.
 
The events, which included sponsored walks, raffles and dress down days, were held between the law firm’s offices in Bromsgrove, Kidderminster and Worcester.
 
Kirsten Bridgewater, partner and head of mfg’s CSR committee said: “Our staff across all three offices have made a great contribution to our charitable giving in the past 12 months. Their efforts and generosity have been superb.
 
“All three charities were hand-picked by our staff and each does a fantastic job for so many people and their families. I hope our donation can help make a difference to the lives of people they each support each and every day.”
 
Ms Bridgewater added that mfg Solicitors will announce its chosen charities for 2017 in the coming weeks, following a staff vote.
 
Based in Worcester, St Richard’s Hospice cares for 2,500 patients and their loved ones each year.
 
Primrose Hospice is based in Bromsgrove and supports patients living with a life-limiting illness. mfg’s donation will support the Hospice’s Palliative Care service at the town’s Princess of Wales Hospital.
 
St Basils charity has supported accommodation schemes in Redditch, Bromsgrove and Wyre Forest for homeless young people aged 16-25, helping them to enter into training schemes and achieve long-term employment so that they can move on successfully with their lives.
 
Staff at mfg will continue to hold a variety of fundraising events throughout 2017.
 
The firm’s Ludlow and Telford offices in Shropshire also supported local causes in 2016 – Joel’s Wish and the Wellington Cottage Care Trust.
