LOCAL SOLICITORS PLEDGE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Regional law firm, Porter Dodson, would normally host Christmas drinks for all their offices in December.  Like many others they have been unable to celebrate Christmas in their usual way and instead have donated £6,000 to local charities.

Porter Dodson has chosen charities who have been hard hit this year, with their fundraising events being cancelled and for many, their services being needed more than ever.

Benefitting from the Firm’s generosity are:

  • The Pilsdon Community, Bridport;
  • The Portland Foodbank;
  • Julia’s House;
  • Sherborne Primary School food drive;
  • Open Door, Taunton;
  • The Trussell Trust, Wellington Foodbank;
  • The Yeovil Community Meals Service;
  • and The Lords Larder.

  Richard Baker, Head of the Family Team and CSR Partner, said: “Being able to reach out into the community at these challenging times means a lot to the Firm and we are delighted to support those in need over the festive season.  Putting others first is at the heart of what we do, and we want to make sure, as far as we are able, that no one goes without over Christmas.  Everyone should have a roof over their head and food on their table every day and we know that this year has been very challenging for many people.”

Rob Fox, Managing Partner, added “By working together, we can help end poverty. Our office heads chose these charities because they are at the heart of the communities where we have offices.  All but one provides food and shelter, with Julia’s House playing an invaluable role in the lives of families at a very difficult time, made even more difficult by COVID-19.”

Russell Lee, Trustee at The Yeovil Community Meals Service, thanked the Firm saying “We are so pleased that you have been able to support this very important service. This year Penny and the team will also be providing meals on all days over the festive period except Christmas day. We have previously taken a break for all the bank holidays but feel that we need to keep people fed during this lockdown period.”
