STAFF EFFORT AT WILLANS LLP REWARDED BY LOCAL BUSINESS CHARITY AWARDS
We were delighted to have been nominated for a third year as finalists in this year’s Local Business Charity Awards. These awards recognise the contribution made by local Gloucestershire businesses and their staff to local Gloucestershire charities.
We were nominated by Cheltenham charity LINC, for our fundraising efforts over the past twelve months. Our staff raised over £11,000 for them during our 2015-2016 financial year; which has been used to support local people and their families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers.
We did this through a carol concert, a business quiz evening for 200 people, a pool competition, cake bake-offs and staff taking on sporting challenges such as Tough Mudder and Ride London.
James Grigg, partner and head of our charity committee, said he is proud of the efforts of everyone in the firm and the amount they raised for LINC.
“All of us at Willans have worked hard to fundraise for such a worthy cause but we’ve enjoyed every minute of it. The level of commitment and support from our team was outstanding and being an award finalist was an honour.”
