Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.
