Walker Morris funds training of NSPCC ChildLine Schools Service VolunteerPrint news article
Employees from law firm Walker Morris have raised £1,989.49 through charity fundraising efforts for the NSPCC.
The funds, which have been raised through a number of activities including dress down days and donations, are enough to pay for the training for a ChildLine School Service Volunteer.
William Shaw, ChildLine Schools Service Manager for the Yorkshire & the Humber region said: “We’re thrilled that Walker Morris has raised such a great amount for our ChildLine Schools Service. It is a great preventative service that aims to visit every primary school in the UK by 2016, to help younger children’s understanding of abuse and how they can stay safe. Using assemblies and workshops, it’s designed to encourage children to recognise situations where they may need help and to tell them ways of accessing support. I would like to thank everyone at Walker Morris for their hard work and continued support. The money raised will help us to train and support a volunteer who can visit local primary schools in and around Leeds.”
Louise Power, partner at Walker Morris and head of corporate social responsibility added:
“Thanks to all our staff for their support and enthusiasm as ever. We’re delighted to be able to make this donation to such a worthy charity as the NSPCC. Their work in our community is extremely valuable and has such a positive influence on the people we live and work with. As a firm we have had a relationships with the NSPCC for a number of years, not only in terms of charity donations such as this, but through legal advice, much of which is provided for free.”
