The latest charity venture spearheaded by a group of trainee lawyers and paralegals from hlw Keeble Hawson has boosted monies raised for St Luke’s hospice to over £1,500.

St Luke's logoThe seven-strong team has undertaken a vibrant series of fundraising events since the firm’s Sheffield office named St Luke’s as its adopted charity for 2017. They include a pizza and beer raffle, a dress down, wine tasting and a Trib3 challenge.

Their latest initiative, which entailed packing customers’ bags and carrying them to their cars at Waitrose on Ecclesall Road, achieved £426 for the charity, which strives to deliver the best possible palliative care in Sheffield for people over 18 who are terminally ill.

Team members involved were trainees Richard Barrett, Syed Islam, Emily King, Holly Langman and James Redshaw and paralegals Amelia Goodair and Louise Ward.

Emily King, said: “Customers were very receptive and generous and this was an ideal opportunity to promote the inspirational work of St Luke’s whose new premises, which will officially open this Autumn, will provide ground-breaking palliative care services and enhanced activities for patients, their families and the community.”

Michele Todd, partner and head of hlw Keeble Hawson’s charity sector group, said: “The commitment and creativity of our trainees is tremendous. All the vital services that St Luke’s provides are free and our fundraising will help this inspirational charity to develop and drive continual improvements for everyone affected by terminal illness.”

A champion of giving back to its local communities, hlw Keeble Hawson - one of the region’s largest law firms with offices in Leeds and Doncaster - donates over 50 pro bono days annually to participate in wide-ranging fundraising events for organisations. These include Cathedral Archer Project, St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds and the nationwide charity, Changing Lives.
