18 December My DofE volunteering: Campaigning for the youth in Hackney
City Stories: Blake Morgan
Why are you supporting City Giving Day?
Corporate responsibility at Blake Morgan is an integral part of our business philosophy to make a difference for our clients, our people and our communities. City Giving Day highlights the fabulous charities businesses in London work tirelessly to support. We are delighted to be supporting it this year.
Which charities or communities do you support?
Our London office charity is Dementia UK, a charity that provides Admiral Nurses for families affected by dementia. Each of our offices elects its own charity to fundraise for, with our staff nominating and championing charities that they are passionate about.
How will you celebrate City Giving Day?
We are hoping to partner with the other businesses in our building to celebrate City Giving Day and to combine our efforts, culminating with the CGD Quiz. It will require some coordination, and cooperation, but we hope to get to know our 'neighbours' better whilst raising money for great causes.
Which charity are you supporting, why are you supporting it?
Dementia UK was nominated by Lucy Dodds, Trainee Solicitor. The whole office has got behind our fundraising efforts since the new charity was selected at Christmas, with Lucy running the London Marathon this month.
"Our Christmas cracker auction always gets our festive fundraising off to a great start. Michelle was delighted to 'win' as you can see!"
