22nd Dec 2021

There are only 4 days until Christmas and we are going to continue with articles relating to the Charity work we as a Chambers have completed in a year when Charities have needed help the most due to the Pandemic.

For blog number 4 we are going to cast our minds back to January, when home schooling started to become the norm for so many households up and down the country.

On 22nd January 2021 we supported The Manchester Evening News Digital Donation Day which was held to help local school children who are struggling to learn from home.

We raised £6000 to help children in Manchester, which would provide them with digital devices for home schooling.

From the Manchester Evening News: Thousands of youngsters across Greater Manchester are without the devices, data and internet connections to be able to remote learn while schools are closed to all but key worker and vulnerable children.

Over 4 weeks members and staff had a target to complete 5k worth of exercise over 5days, raising money for 4 Charities, each connected to our practice areas – Care Leaver’s Association, Mercy Corps, Nacro and Headway.
