Law firm raises £13,000 for local Bristol charity
National law firm Bond Dickinson LLP, which has an office in Bristol, has raised more than £13,000 for local charity Ronald McDonald House Bristol.
Ronald McDonald House Bristol, which has been Bond Dickinson’s chosen Bristol charity since January 2015, is an independent charity that provides free home from home accommodation to the families of critically ill children receiving care at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
The amount raised was made possible through a range of activities including cake sales, photography competitions, sponsored runs, quizzes, fayres, film nights, golf days at the Celtic Manor and payroll giving. Bond Dickinson was also the headline sponsor at this year’s golf day which raised over £33,000 for the charity.
Ewen Macgregor, Partner at Bond Dickinson and Head of CSR in the Bristol office, said: “I want to say a huge thank you to the whole team in Bristol who have made such tremendous efforts to support this great cause.
“Giving back to the local community has always been one of Bond Dickinson’s values. We strongly believe that successful businesses should play an essential role in supporting local communities which is why we support a number of causes locally and nationally including Bristol Sport Community Foundation, Oasis Academy, Survive and The Princes Trust to name a few.”
Anna Palmer, Corporate Fundraiser and Events Coordinator at Ronald McDonald House Bristol, added: “Bond Dickinson has shown such generosity, selflessness and altruism, we cannot thank them enough for all they have done for us and for the 882 families we have looked after in the past 2 years. The partnership with Bond Dickinson has been an incredibly unique experience and their legacy will remain with us whilst we continue to support families for many years to come.”
