Award winning St Albans family law specialists, Rayden Solicitors, raised £5,813 last year for Carers in Hertfordshire, their chosen charity for 2014.
The year started with a hugely successful Quiz night at Old Albanians supported by both London and local businesses including the St Albans Chamber of Commerce. Throughout the year the team took part in various other fundraising events; legal seminars, sponsored runs and even a jewellery party.
The whole team nominate and then vote for a charity of the year, every year. Carers in Hertfordshire was chosen as it is a local cause close the heart of Rayden Solicitors’ paralegal, Nicola Caffery, whose father is also a trustee.
Managing Partner, Nadia Biles Davies, said “We have a great team here at Rayden Solicitors and we are pleased to be able to support our local community every year. To raise nearly £6,000 in a year is a phenomenal achievement for a small business. It is a testament not only to our team but also the local business and legal community who have supported us throughout the year.”
At the cheque presentation last week, Linda Cudmore, Development and Fundraising Manager for Carers in Hertfordshire said, “We were so excited to have been chosen as Charity of the Year by Rayden Solicitors. They have really helped us raise the profile of unpaid carers and the challenges they face day in day out. Obviously the icing on the cake is their staggering donation of £5,813 which will really help us to identify more hidden, often isolated carers across the county. They have also pledged ongoing support with information and advice for carers via our website and workshops. So a huge thank you to everyone at Rayden for Making Carers Count!”
The Rayden Solicitors team have chosen the Harpenden Child Contact Centre for their charity for 2015. Their first fundraiser for this year is a Bake Off between local businesses and cake sale. It takes place this Thursday with a prize for the best looking cake and best tasting cake.
