CHARITIES WE WORK WITH
Jefferies Solicitors firmly believes in giving something back to the local community and, as such, has been heavily involved in a number of charities and charitable events since its inception.
We have worked alongside leading brain injury charity, Headway UK for a number of years.
In July 2020, Jefferies Solicitors funded the running costs of the Headway helpline for a day. The helpline is there for those dealing with the devastating effects of brain injury. If you need support call 0808 800 2244.
In 2013, we took on the challenge of receiving the ‘Headway baton’. As part of our charitable pledge, the entire Jefferies team worked hard throughout the year to raise as much money as possible for the charity. We hosted a charity ball at The Midland Hotel in Manchester and two members of the team, Nina Ramsden and Deborah Adams, completed the London marathon. Since then we have raised thousands of pounds for Headway through various fundraising activities.
THE CHILDREN’S ADVENTURE FARM TRUST (CAFT)
We have also worked with Cheshire-based charity, the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT). The organisation, which is 100% reliant on donations, gives children from underprivileged backgrounds and those with physical impairments, the chance for an adventure break within its grounds. Our staff are able to take paid leave to volunteer at the centre as taking part in all kinds of fundraising events.
We are also one of the founding members of the CAFT Business Club.
In July 2020, Daniel Markarian from Jefferies completed a 127 mile cycling challenge to raise funds for CAFT. He cycled the entire Leeds and Liverpool canal in one day and raised £390.
