Law firm gears up for Christmas with festive good deed

20 Nov 2017

Trethowans is starting the season of goodwill early, with a £1,000 pre-Christmas boost for local nominated charity, Naomi House & Jacksplace.

The firm is supporting the charity’s Big Gift Shake Up campaign. The fundraising initiative aims to provide gifts that are of real value to children with life limiting illnesses and their families. Rather than donating toys, people donate money that will directly fund experiences and services, ranging from play sessions to a place for families to stay while their child is in the hospice.

Trethowans has donated £1,000 worth of gifts as part of its commitment to supporting the areas it works in.

Jill McDonagh, Corporate Fundraiser from Naomi House & Jacksplace said: “Every child deserves to play and receive first class care, but not all of those we care for can play with regular toys. For many there is an even better way to ensure they have a very special Christmas; full of fun and opportunities to make memories that last a lifetime. Shaking up Christmas and donating one of our special gift ideas is the perfect way to support our work.”

Emma Clark from Trethowans’ charity committee added: “Having been based near to Naomi House for many years, we hear a lot about the fantastic work that the charity does. It’s our pleasure to support the Big Gift Shake Up with this donation, which we know will make a real difference to people using the services of Naomi House & Jacksplace.”
