Grantham solicitors’ fund-raising pays off with over £5,000 for Macmillan
Ringrose Law Solicitors have raised an impressive £5,304.35 for their 2014 Charity of the Year, Macmillan Cancer Support.
Over the past 12 months the firm has organised a variety of events for staff, clients and the general public, including fishing matches, sponsored slimathons, bake days, family fun day, raffles, supermarket bag packs - and two colleagues even jumped out of a plane!
Paul Cooper, managing partner at Ringrose Law, said: “Many families within our firm have been affected by cancer. Ringrose Law are personally aware of the efforts and care the Macmillan nurses provide. It is for this reason we chose Macmillan as our Charity of the Year.
“I am delighted and proud to see all our staff so enthusiastic and eager to help with fundraising. You never know when it could be your turn.”
Tanya Taylor, fund-raising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support Lincolnshire, added: “We are delighted to have worked in partnership with Ringrose Law. Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face and the feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many people experience make it even harder.
“It’s absolutely vital that cancer services are in place in the area that can provide the information and support that is needed now and will be needed ever more in the future.
“In addition to providing medical support and emotional support, Macmillan provide one off grants to help people affected by cancer on low income pay for essentials such as heating or clothing. Last year we were able to award £135,555 to 798 people across Lincolnshire.
“We simply would not be able to do this without the support and generosity of local companies like Ringrose Law. No one should face cancer alone and with the support of Ringrose Law and the local community no one will.”
Ringrose Law will be continuing with their fund-raising efforts in 2015, and working with several charities across the county in helping raise funds.
The firm will also be continuing with it’s A Grand Idea and giving £1,000 each to six different community groups across the county. To find out more, or to enter a charity/community project, go to www.ringroselaw.co.uk/agrandidea/
