Four local charities have received a total of £1,000 between them from Thursfields Solicitors to help them through COVID-19.
The donations of £250 each have gone to the following charities:
- New College Worcester, a residential school for students aged 11 to 19 who are blind or partially sighted.
- Sight Concern Worcestershire, the only charity dedicated exclusively to improving the lives of people with sight loss in the county, which has been active in the community since 1880.
- Get-A-Head, an independent cancer charity supporting those with head and neck diseases and cancers, which has local fundraising arms.
- Black Country Food Bank, which helps vulnerable individuals and families in crisis through the provision of three days emergency food supplies while longer-term solutions are developed.
Nick O’Hara, managing director of Thursfields, said: “We are all aware that charities have taken a massive hit during this time and are struggling to raise funds.
“With that in mind, we decided to do our bit and Thursfields will be donating £250 a piece to our chosen charities.
“We have also reached out to them to offer further help and we will be circulating anything that arises with all our staff who often give up their time to assist and promote any needs to our contacts and local community.”
