Direction Law works with a number of charities and voluntary organisations within both our local community and the sectors within which we work, details of some of these activities are set out below:
On Sunday 15 March, Scott Walker, business development executive at Direction Law walked across 1,000 degree coals, and raised £275 for local charity Kent Wish Foundation.
The Kent Wish Foundation create the opportunities and platforms for children with life limiting illnesses to receive that one dream that they have always wanted, whether it be an amazing holiday or meeting an idol.
At Direction Law, we use watercoolers from AquAid. By working with AquAid we have been given the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust.
These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
For a number of years Direction Law has supported the annual Older People’s Christmas Party which is organised by the Octavia Foundation. Their Head of Fundraising Naomi Roper has emailed us to say:
“Thanks to the generosity of supporters like yourselves, we were able to accommodate 120 guests from the boroughs of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea, all of whom are vulnerable or isolated.”
