Right from the launch of our business, we believed in giving something back. We are very fortunate to have the support of our colleagues, who help come up with fun and brilliant ideas to fundraise.
We have partnered up with the brilliant Emmaus charity which work with the homeless. Since beginning our support, we do “dress down” Friday’s to raise monies, we have abseiled from one of the tallest buildings in Birmingham and have put together Christmas stockings with festive treats for the charities Coventry based companions.
We are also supporting The Buddy Bag Foundation, a charity making a difference to children in emergency care. The charity provides children entering emergency accommodation with Buddy Bags to restore a sense of safety and security in their lives. Our support of this charity is very new, so we are thinking of lots of ways in which we help.
“Emmaus UK is delighted to be supported by Pickford Solicitors. The partnership means we are able to offer more people a place to call home, meaningful work and the opportunity to gain qualifications, self-develop and get their lives on track. We’ve had a lot of fun so far taking on the first ever Emmaus UK Drop from The Top Challenge, together last Summer and Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire companions (people who were experiencing homelessness) were made up when they received the wonderful Christmas stockings put together by the Pickford Solicitors team! A huge thank you from myself and the Emmaus UK team; we are looking forward to taking on the next challenge together!” Sallie Winterbottom
