AFG LAW charity night cheque handover
April 14, 2015
AFG LAW hosted a fun-filled charity night in February at Bury Town Hall. Proceeds from the evening totalled £3,000.00 and will be split equally between Women’s Housing Action Group (WHAG), Bury Hospice and Early Break.
WHAG look after victims (women and their dependent children) of domestic violence in Bury and Rochdale. Bury Hospice offers care and support to people approaching the end of life and to their families and friends. Early Break provides counselling, support and information to young people aged 18 and under who are around drug and alcohol use.
The night was attended by over 200 people, from large companies who booked several tables to individuals with single tickets. With a DJ, auction, raffle and plenty of dancing a good time was had by all and, most importantly, the three charities each received £1,000.00 from the proceeds.
‘The evening represented a terrific triumph for these three worthy charities. We were able to demonstrate our commitment to supporting these important services and also to build some key relationships within the Bury community,’ said Greg French, director and property solicitor at AFG LAW’s Bury office. ‘We appreciate the necessity of giving something back and helping to make our communities better, however we can. Our charity night enabled us to recognise three charities for the work they do to help safeguard vulnerable people.’
‘We’re very grateful to everyone who joined us in supporting these three fantastic charities. Especially when times are still quite tough for many people and businesses, it’s encouraging to see people in our community pull together to make a difference,’ added Emma Cordock, family solicitor at AFG LAW.
