Solicitors kick off fundraising with art show
A SOLICITOR firm is hoping to give something back to the community as part of its 20th birthday celebrations.
Jobling Gowler Solicitors, based on Park Lane, has launched its twenty-4-20 campaign and has chosen 20 charities to benefit from a year of fundraising.
During the coming year it will host a number of fundraising events, with the cash split between its chosen charities, which include Just Drop-In, Cre8, Citizens Advice, Friends for Leisure, SUSO, Wheelies, Macclesfield Eye Society, The Rossendale Trust, Macclesfield and District Talking Newspaper, Disability Information Bureau, Windyway Trust, Mid Cheshire Riding for the Disabled, Alzheimer’s Society, the Macclesfield branch of MHA Live At Home and the WHAM project.
A spokesman for Jobling Gowler said: “Giving something back to the community is something Jobling Gowler feel passionately about.
“All of these local charities that are involved with the campaign work tirelessly to provide wonderful care and support within their communities to help people with physical and mental disabilities, together with those that are particularly vulnerable in society.”
One of the first fund-raising events was an art exhibition and raffle held at the Jobling Gowler office in Park Lane, where £122 was raised from the raffle of a Macclesfield silk picture.
Future initiatives include a donation for every will made at the firm, and Tessa Whiskard, a solicitor within the firm, is training for the Macclesfield Half Marathon.
The firm is also putting together a specially commissioned twenty-420 cookbook, with all proceeds being split among the charities.
