Three local charities are to receive focused fundraising, awareness and volunteer support from Thursfields Solicitors for the 2022-23 year.
The leading Midlands law firm’s new charity of the year application window has now opened, and entries will be accepted for consideration until 25 March 2022.
The charities will each be from areas served by Thursfields’ offices – one for the Birmingham and Solihull offices, one for the Black Country office in Halesowen and one for Worcestershire offices at Kidderminster and Worcester.
The successful charities will then become Thursfields’ chosen trio from 1 May 2022 to 30 April 2023.
Thursfields’ chairman Nick O’Hara said: “We will support those charities throughout the next 12 months to help them provide crucial services within our communities.
“Our team across Thursfields’ offices will strive to raise as many funds as possible for each charity, providing volunteers to help on projects and raising awareness of the important role each charity plays.
“We all live and work in our local communities and so we are keen to support local charities as much as we can, helping them to make even more of a difference to those who are in greatest need.”
Thursfields chose five charities for the 2021-22 year and they were:
- Birmingham Dogs Home, based in Solihull www.birminghamdogshome.org.uk
- Father Hudson’s Care, a social care agency in Birmingham www.fatherhudsons.org.uk
- Friends of Alfie Johnson, a charity helping children with disabilities in Kidderminster www.friendsofalfiejohnson.org.uk
- Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, based in Stourbridge www.midlandsairambulance.com, and
- St Paul’s Hostel for the homeless, in Worcester www.stpaulshostel.co.uk.
The above charities are receiving Thursfields’ support throughout the 2021-22 year until the end of April.
Nick added: “Everyone here at Thursfields has enjoyed helping our current five charities of the year, and we are now looking forward to choosing the next three who will benefit for 12 months from this May.
“We decided to choose three this year so that each charity could receive a bigger share of the benefits we hope to generate.”
