£10,000 Donation Milestone Passed

Winn Solicitors is delighted to have passed the £10,000 mark for charitable donations throughout the last financial year.

This has been split between a number of good causes, with the Great North Air Ambulance Service - our chosen charity of the year - receiving the bulk, and the rest being spread out between other terrific organisations.

Headway, MASS, Brake and Living Streets are just a few who have benefited from this. Winns, a part of Winn Group, created a CSR committee, who held a number of internal and external events to help with the fundraising.

We have sponsored and entered a team in a golf day, donated gifts to charity raffles and provided one-off donations throughout the financial year, with the Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter benefitting from a festive donation drive courtesy of one of our solicitors.

Our CSR committee hosted a quiz night at the Tyneside Cinema, as well as a hugely successful, dance-filled bingo night. There was a sponsored rowing event in the office, a hamper raffle and the odd treat trolley going around, all of which raised a tremendous sum of money.

Michael Warmington, Associate Director – Head of Group HR and Office Management, said; “This is a fantastic achievement and is testament to the hard work put in by all concerned. The events have been well received and a real boost to team morale.

“The result of all of this is we are able to, as a company and group of people, donate much-needed funding to a range of charities and causes who all do superb work in helping vulnerable people and those that need assistance. A thank you to our CSR committee for all of their help throughout and to everyone who has kindly donated to these worthy causes.”
