Hatchers Solicitors have always seen the importance in using their resources to support local community events and fundraising initiatives and this year has been no different.
Internally the firm raise money for two charities that are voted for annually by staff. Last year Hatchers raised just under £3000 for Hope House and British Heart Foundation and this year they are raising money for Alzheimer’s Society and Epilepsy Action. The staff take part in bake sales, dress down days, Wii tournaments, healthy lunches and lots of other fun activities to raise cash for these deserving causes.
The firm don’t only focus on supporting charities internally but also through their sponsorship of local fundraising events. This year the firm sponsored ‘Pictures in the Park’, Shrewsbury’s first ever outdoor cinema in the Quarry, in aid of Relate, Shropshire, Herefordshire and North Staffordshire.
Hatchers’ annual Quiz saw more than 100 local business people battle it out over ten rounds raising over £1000 pounds to be added to charity pot.
In May, Shrewsbury saw the second year of the ‘Shrewsbury Cycle Grand Prix’ and Hatchers first year of sponsorship. Historically, Shrewsbury was home to an annual cycle race around the town however in 2014 SCGP came to the centre for the first time in twenty years. The event was very well attended and brought thousands of people to the town centre. Hatchers hope to continue supporting Paramount CRT in their organisation of the event for years to come.
Jessie Hinds, Marketing Co-ordinator at Hatchers said,
‘We are always keen to get involved in local events that bring visitors, custom and interest to our wonderful town. We help where we can and hope that we can make a difference by supporting both local and national charities and fundraising initiatives. Each year we see the Shrewsbury events calendar grow and that gives us a great sense of pride, we love belonging to such a proactive and close community.”
