‘Charity of the Season’
We take our Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously, and enjoy helping charities as much as we can. Every quarter we support a charity or organisation as part of our ‘Charity of the Season’ scheme.
We pledge to each charity or organisation that for every new appointment made during that ‘season’ we will donate to them a minimum of £10 (increased depending on the service). This is not just restricted to those who enquire through the charity or organisation – this is for every new client Trusted Law gains during this period!
We are always looking for new charities or organisations to support so if you have one close to your heart please let us know who they are and why you support them. In the meantime, check out the organisations we are currently helping and have helped so far:
Our Charity of the Winter Dec 2018 – Feb 2019
We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting The Shade Primary School Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) as our Charity of the Winter.
It is the aim of The Shade Primary School to establish an open and friendly school, in which parents are welcome and valued as partners in children’s learning.
As a community school they strive to achieve a sense of ‘family’ where everyone feels, happy, safe and secure.
Their aim is for all children to master learning skills that bring a love of learning, achievement, confidence and independence, in order for them to be the designers of their future. To achieve this they work with their partners to learn, develop and improve.
The Shade and its community encourage a caring attitude, take pride in their roots and celebrate their successes.
The PTFA supports the school in all of their activities.
Our Charity of the Autumn Sep – Nov 2018
We were delighted to support Embrace as our Charity of the Autumn.
Embrace: People – Futures – Change is a social enterprise based in East Anglia, supporting people in the community primarily through coaching, but also ongoing support, mentoring and signposting.
Embrace strongly believes that everyone deserves a chance to shine and to have the future they want and deserve; their strap line is ‘Supporting you to become the best version of you’.
They embrace people, supporting them to embrace their own futures and together they embrace and support change, benefiting the wider society. Working primarily with people who feel marginalised and excluded from society, through homelessness, offending behaviour and disability, but this list is by no means exhaustive.
Our Charity of the Summer Jun – Aug 2018
We were delighted to support Hemsby Lifeboat as our Charity of the Summer.
Hemsby Inshore Rescue Service (HIRS) is a voluntary independent lifeboat service based in Hemsby on the Norfolk coast. They are not part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), nor do they receive any funding from them or from the Government.
None of their members receive any remuneration and they rely entirely on the generosity of the public to keep the service afloat. So, every pound donated really counts and goes towards saving a life.
How they operate…
As a ‘declared facility’, HIRS work closely with Coastguard and flanking Lifeboat stations to ensure the coastline is kept safe throughout the year.
The crew of the Service are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are paged by Coastguard when they are required.
They save lives at sea and on the Norfolk Broads…
The Service also operates a smaller specialist freshwater boat to cover the 125 miles of inland waterways of The Norfolk Broads.
Our Charity of the Spring Mar – May 2018
We were delighted to support littlelifts as our ‘Charity of the Spring’.
Every year at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, approximately 520 women are treated for primary breast cancer with chemotherapy – that’s 43 women a month.
The amazing charity littlelifts are on a mission to support these women by offering a littlelifts Comfort Box at the beginning of their chemotherapy treatment.
What is primary breast cancer?
Primary breast cancer means the cancer has not spread beyond the breast or lymph nodes under the arm. There are many different treatments, depending on the circumstances of the patient and their cancer. Chemotherapy is one of these and it involves using chemical, systemic anti-cancer treatment (or SACT, for short). It is a very different experience for each patient, and the side effects can be very unpleasant.
That’s why littlelifts aims to help alleviate some of the side effects patients may experience through the products in their Comfort Boxes.
Our Charity of the Winter Dec 2017 – Feb 2018
We were delighted to support TimeNorfolk as our Charity of the Winter.
TimeNorfolk is an amazing charity that provides free confidential help and support to anyone:
- Who has experienced pregnancy loss through miscarriage, termination or stillbirth,
- With an unplanned pregnancy,
- Needing support through their pregnancy,
- Needing support for other pregnancy related issues e.g. infertility, pre or post-natal depression.
They provide support across Norfolk to women and their partners of all ages and they provide support when it’s needed!
Our Charity of the Autumn Sept – Nov 2017
We were delighted to support Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue as our Charity of the Autumn 2017.
Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue (NorLSAR) are a group of volunteers who are trained in search and rescue techniques.
They are prepared to help the police look for missing people 365 days a year – making them a ’24 hour, seven days a week service’!
NorLSAR uses trained people and dogs to search any terrain found in lowland Britain. Unlike the more famous Mountain Rescue counterpart NorLSAR will not go into mountainous areas – different search skills are required for lowland terrain.
Our Charity of the Summer Jun – Aug 2017
We were delighted to support Robert Kett Primary School PTA – supporting a local charity and children, as our Charity of the Summer 2017.
On a personal note…………
I wanted to support Robert Kett Primary School because my children have recently started in Reception class, and they are loving it! When my twins started at Robert Kett last September I had these wonderful ideas that I would join the PTA and support the school as much as possible – of course, life has gotten in the way, particularly with the growth of Trusted Wills, and sadly I haven’t been able to dedicate as much time as I would like to supporting my children’s school.
