Fletchers Solicitors mark International Day of Charity

5th September 2018

At Fletchers Solicitors we put people at the heart of everything we do and believe it is important to support a range of charities.

To mark International Day of Charity (September 5), we would like to tell you a little more about the charities we support and the reasons behind it.

This year our chosen charities are Alder Hey, Big Change Manchester, Cancer Research UK and Headway Brain Injury Association for Preston and Chorley.

We support them through sponsorship and assisting at events but also by holding our own events on behalf of the charities.

This Friday (September 6) more than 60 team members and friends of Fletchers will participate in a Golf Day at Hesketh Golf Club to raise money for Headway.

Sarah Charnley, Court of Protection Solicitor at Fletchers Solicitors, is Chairman and Director of Headway Preston and Chorley.

Sarah said: “I got involved with Headway through my role at Fletchers and being Chairman of the charity is a great privilege. They do such important work to help people affected by brain injury and with the support of Fletchers and other companies, they can continue to offer their support in the community.”

Each Friday, team members are encouraged to ‘dress down’ in exchange for £1. With more than 400 members of staff, those pounds soon add up and the money is donated to the chosen charities.

Ed Fletcher, CEO of Fletchers Solicitors, said: “The work that we do to support different charities is something that we are extremely proud of. Dealing with the types of cases that we do, we see first-hand how much these charities support people and how vital their role is.

“It’s important to recognise the importance of these organisations – they truly are a lifeline for some people.”
