Staff from Leeds-based firm Morrish Solicitors recently boosted their fundraising efforts for children’s cancer charity, Candlelighters, by completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge. Morrish are almost half way through a 2 year partnership which will see them raise money for this Yorkshire wide charity.
As well as completing the 3 Peaks Walk the firm have also held regular dress down days for staff, themed bake sales, an auction, a World Cup event and quiz.
Brian Curran, Candlelighters Corporate Fundraiser, said, “We are delighted to have Morrish as a corporate partner and by taking on this challenge they are helping us support families who are taking on their own challenge of a lifetime.
Clair Watmore, Head of Communications at Morrish, said, “We asked our staff to vote to choose our Charity of the Year – Candlelighters won with an overwhelming majority. We wanted to show our support for a charity that has affected many people within our community and this is our way of giving something back. Our proximity to the charity allows many of our staff to get involved with activities and also provides the opportunity for them to meet the children and families who are affected to see first-hand how Candlelighters support them. Morrish are planning more fundraising events over the next year, including a Wimbledon-themed event, regular bake-offs, a wellness event and an abseil in Leeds.”
