Each year, staff at Veale Wasbrough Vizards (VWV) nominate their chosen charity, which means that the firm's offices direct fund raising to one dedicated charity. This year the VWV Birmingham office has voted to support St Basils. The partnership involves the firm providing financial support throughout the year, including donations from the charitable trust as well as fundraising events. It also involves a commitment from the firm to build a close working relationship with the chosen charity by learning more about their work, which will be achieved through a range of activities.
Simon Heald, VWV Managing Partner commented:
"I am delighted that we are able to continue to support local charities where our fundraising can really make a difference. During our last financial year, we managed to raise funds through a series of activities, spanning the year for our chosen charities. We are hoping to build on this again this year, and raise funds including for St Basils."
Barrie Hodge, Head of Fundraising at St Basils said:
“We are delighted to have the support of Veale Wasbrough Vizards for the forthcoming year and have their assistance in raising much needed funds to help homeless young people here in Birmingham. We look forward to them being involved in our new cycling event on 18 September and also our Birmingham SleepOut in its new location outside Birmingham Cathedral on 25 November.”
Previous nominated VWV charities include Bristol Children's Help Society, The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, St Peter's Hospice, BRACE and St Mungo’s Broadway.
