In 2017, we chose local charity SNAP, who work tirelessly in the community to help 0-25 years olds with special needs and their parents in a variety of ways, providing a respite lifeline for many of these families.
Our fundraising efforts
The firm’s fundraising plans for the year were a mixture of internal events, running challenges and slightly more out of the box activities. Our monthly dress down days in the office managed to raise £600, and this figure was matched by our client satisfaction questionnaires, which sees the firm donate £1 for every completed form we receive back from our clients.
Pinney Pacers Alex Pearce, Stephen Eccles, Lexie Jacobs, Keeley Miller and Suzanne Figgins took on the challenge of various running events throughout the year, including the Brighton Marathon. Their spirited efforts managed to raise an incredible £1,100 for SNAP.
October saw our most challenging task to date, when solicitors Sue Nash, Catherine Loadman and Lucy Birch undertook a 24-hour Danceathon in our Upminster office, which was also streamed live on Facebook. The entire local community and our corporate sponsors rallied around them and their endeavours managed to raise over £5,000.
Christmas is always a charitable time of year and our annual ‘Christmas at the Queens’ event raised over £2,700, with 50% going to SNAP (the remaining 50% is donated to Queens Theatre Hornchurch).
