Leading Yorkshire law firm Raworths LLP has chosen St Michael’s Hospice as its sole charity partner for the next 12 months.
The North Yorkshire legal practice, established in 1885, hopes to raise thousands of pounds for the charity which helps local people living with a terminal illness and also with bereavement issues.
The Hospice provides 24 hour care at Crimple House, Hornbeam Park with a ten bed In-Patient Unit, Plan Respite Care and Day Therapy Unit. The charity needs to raise £3.9 million a year to continue with its objectives.
Jonathan Mortimer, Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution at Raworths LLP said: ‘This was a very easy choice to make. St Michaels Hospice is an extremely impressive organisation. There are numerous members of the firm who have been touched by the work of the Hospice and we are delighted to play our part in helping raise the needed funds for the charity’.
‘I have recently toured the facilities and they are extremely impressive. I have also been impressed by the profile of the charity itself and the extent to which it works with local businesses and the community more generally’.
‘It is also a delight to adopt St Michaels Hospice in its 25 birthday this year. This ties in with our own 125 birthday’.
Raworths LLP will join as a member of the business 500 club.
Last year, Raworths LLP adopted Yorkshire Cancer Research as their charity of the year and raised just under £5,000.
