Clyde & Co
In September last year, we launched a three year partnership with the global law firm, Clyde & Co. Each Clyde & Co office has been twinned with their local children’s hospice service and will be raising funds to support seriously ill children and their families in their local communities.
Staff haven’t wasted any time, embracing a number of fundraising activities already - carol signing, mufti days, Rolls-Royce raffles and cycling from Land’s End to John o’ Groats are just some of the activities that have helped to raise a fantastic £45,000 so far!
Volunteering projects have also been well supported, with teams helping to maintain the gardens at Richard House Children’s Hospice and support of our advocacy project with the solicitors pro bono group, LawWorks. Clyde & Co’s staff will be taking part in regular drop-in clinics around the country, where they will support families with problems in areas such as unsuitable accommodation and care package challenges, making a practical difference to their lives and freeing up time and energy for them to spend together as a family.
On top of all of this, Clyde & Co have also donated some much needed PC’s to Together for Short Lives and Helen & Douglas House.
Good luck to everyone from Clyde & Co taking part in the Follow the Sun challenge on Friday. Teams will be completing a 40 or 60-mile cycle challenge through Oxfordshire or trekking 12 miles along the Thames path to raise vital funds for Together for Short Lives.
