Preston solicitors raise over £5k for two local Barnardos projects in Preston
Friday 12th April 2013
During February solicitors in Preston, Marsden Rawsthorn saw their teams go head to head to raise money for local Preston Barnardos projects and raised over £5k.Three teams competed in an Apprentice style challenge to raise as much money as they could for the Preston projects by organising events, with the team raising the most money winning the challenge. The winners will be announced on the 22nd April.
Consisting of three teams, the Apprentice Challenge saw employees organising events including a Golf Day, a Race Night, staff dressed in "Grease" style outfits out on the streets of Preston to collect money, raffles and a charity dance featuring live music from The Rockabelles; a band fronted by Marsden Rawsthorn Legal Executive Kim Seward.
Stephen Hodgson, Chief Executive at Marsden Rawsthorn commented, “The money that we have raised from the challenge will certainly go to a deserving cause and we are proud to support Barnardos. It has also stirred up some surprisingly competitive streaks in our employees, which has been great fun for those of us on the judging panel to watch!”
The Preston firm of solicitors currently supports two Barnardo's projects including "Moving On", a project that works with young people that are homeless or in housing need in the Preston area and "Include Me 2", a project that provides support to severely disabled children so they can access social and leisure activities.
