Bevan Brittan donates £20000 to local charities
Bevan Brittan is donating £20,000 across its chosen local charities this Christmas, with each of its four offices giving £5,000 to the causes they support throughout the year. The £5,000 donation represents the equivalent cost of postage saved by sending eCards instead of physical Christmas cards. This year, Bevan Brittan is donating £20,000 to charities and the people they look after at an incredibly demanding time of year. Bevan Brittan plays an active role in its local communities in each of its four offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and London by holding regular fundraising events for its chosen local charities. The Christmas donations are in addition to the funds raised by staff during the year through activities including sponsored walks and runs, sleepouts and quizzes Commenting on how Bevan Brittan supports its local communities, the firm’s Head of Community Engagement, Mark Calverley, said: “As a firm, we are committed to making a difference to the communities we work in by playing an active role in supporting local charities. The charities that each of our offices support are very worthy causes that change lives for the better – whether it’s looking after those born unable to swallow or offering support to those without a home to go to this Christmas. “I am very pleased that we are able to make these donations at this time of year, supporting those that require care, advice or support.” Bevan Brittan charities 2019 The charities that Bevan Brittan is donating to this year are: Birmingham: TOFS (Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula Support), a charity supporting those born unable to swallow with one-to-one support and advice for families.
