We have a team of over 150 staff working for our firm based in various locations throughout the North East of Scotland and we are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate wherever we can- whether that is in the form of charitable giving, mentoring, sponsorship or volunteering.
Guided by the firm’s charity committee, our staff decide on a main local charity to support on an annual basis and we get involved in numerous and wide-ranging fundraising activities throughout the course of the year to raise funds and promote that nominated charity. This year we are supporting Roxburghe House, a purpose built specialist palliative care unit in Aberdeen.
We also regularly support other local charitable causes or community initiatives throughout the year to try and make a positive contribution to the communities within which we work and live. This includes supporting local kids’ football teams, running teams and badminton teams, taking part in the Cyrenians sleepout to help tackle homelessness, assisting in the Cyrenians Harvest Festival, donating swimming costumes to a local swim team to name but a few!
As a profession we are enthusiastic about encouraging and developing future solicitors. Where possible we assist local schools, colleges and universities by providing work experience opportunities, conducting presentations or delivering lectures at local educational institutions and exhibiting and talking to people at careers events.
This year some of our staff are taking part in the following sporting events:
• Run Balmoral, 21st & 22nd April (10k)
• BHGE 10k Running Festival, 20th May
• RCCW Aberdeen- Ellon, round the branches cycle challenge, 26/27 May (70 miles)
• The Kiltwalk, 3rd June (13miles and 26 miles)
• Great Aberdeen Run, 26th August (10k and 13.2 miles)
• Gung-ho, 1st September
