Leeds law firm announces charity of the year
Blacks Solicitors LLP has announced that it has nominated the Leeds-based Children’s Heart Surgery Fund as its headline charity for 2018.
The Charity and Corporate Social Responsibility Team at Blacks Solicitors will raise money throughout 2018 with several fundraising events and activities including a bingo night that has already raised £600, Blacks Easter Bake Off, summer party, pumpkin carving contest and of course, National Christmas Jumper Day.
Founded in 1988, Children’s Heart Surgery Fund supports children and adults born with congenital heart disease across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Money raised by the team at Blacks will go towards funding ground-breaking new equipment, resources, training and research.
Alongside Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, Blacks will be donating money to other charities including Getaway Girls and the RSPCA in Leeds.
Dave Paterson, Partner in the Corporate team and Head of the CSR Team at Blacks, said: “At Blacks we’re committed to actively contributing to the community and aiding worthy causes that are close to our hearts.
Last year we raised over ten thousand pounds for our chosen charities and we hope that 2018 will continue to build on this success. The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund is a fantastic charity that helps support many local children and their families, and we’re proud to be helping such a worthy cause. We have an exciting year of fundraising events and activities planned and welcome any support and donations.”
Ellie Brown, Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager at Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, commented: “Having the support of well-known and respected companies like Blacks is vital in ensuring we can fully assist the region’s young heart patients. We’re looking forward to working closely with the Charity and Corporate Social Responsibility Team and seeing how the events and activities planned by Blacks take shape.”
