Associate Sarah Beaumont told us, “Both as individuals and as a firm we are strong believers in supporting charities. We are very excited to be partnering with Meningitis Now to raise much-needed funds and help to continue the great work they do.”
Sarah has put us forward as their charity of the quarter in memory of her friend Nigel Bulmore, who sadly passed away from meningitis in 2007.
She added, “Each quarter a different member of staff fronts the charity initiative for the London office. Staff then raise funds through a range of events and donations for the chosen charity."
“We plan on hosting drinks socials, office Olympics, a cocktail and canapé reception and a raffle, plus dress-down Fridays every week throughout the quarter."
“We’ll also be handing out signs and symptoms cards and putting collection boxes – and cakes – in the kitchens to encourage donations.”
