Supporting the local community

Supporting and investing in our local communities is important to our Partners, staff and clients. Our offices are at the heart of the communities we serve. That means we have an understanding of local issues and are able to make a positive difference.

We are the main sponsors of North Dorset Rugby Club in Gillingham, the TLW Dance Academy in Shaftesbury, the Shaftesbury Youth Cricket Club and The Exchange in Sturminster Newton.

Our sponsorship also extends to supporting local carnivals, pantomimes, schools, fetes and many other activities in nearby towns and villages, including supporting The Save the Drovers Action Group to reopen the Drovers Inn at Gussage All Saints as the hub of the community.

Every year we raise money for our nominated charity of the year. Our annual golf day event has consistently raised in the region of £2,000 for a range of worthwhile causes – this year we are raising money to provide defibrillators in the areas where we have offices . In 2016 we supported  Mosaic – supporting bereaved children.  Eleven of our staff also took part in the London Moonwalk 2017 to raise money for breast cancer charities.

We take great pride in not only contributing to many worthwhile local organisations but also in getting actively involved. Partners and staff are governors of local schools and trustees of local organisations – as well as being members of the local Chambers of Commerce, which helps to support businesses on the high streets.

We also seek, as a firm, to employ our staff from the local community wherever possible and support local schools and university students from the area by participating in their work experience initiatives.
