Over the last year Nockolds has been fundraising for its chosen ‘Charity of the Year’, Kisses4Kids. Kisses4Kids is a Hertfordshire based charity that provides treats and support for children in the local area who have life limiting and terminal illnesses. The fundraising is now complete and the firm is pleased to announce that the total amount of money raised was £4,270.
Throughout 2016/17 the firm has hosted various events including an Easter and Christmas raffle, Christmas Jumper Day and a charity quiz. In addition to this, a team of Nockolds staff took part in a London Bridge Walk. Starting at Putney Bridge and continuing along the River Thames until Tower Bridge, the 15 mile walk through London took the team seven hours to complete, crossing 16 bridges in total.
Vicky Tassell, a member of the Nockolds’ Charity Team commented: “With all of our donations coming from staff, their families and valued contacts, £4,270 is a brilliant achievement and a real testament to the hard work and commitment across the firm. We are looking forward to supporting our next chosen charity of the year and we have a number of great events planned to help raise funds”.
The firm is delighted to announce that this year’s Charity of the Year will be Headway. Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury. Through its network of more than 125 groups and branches across the UK, it provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the health and legal fields.
