Lancashire-based Farleys Solicitors LLP are regular supporters of worthy causes and on Friday 11 March, they held a St. Patrick’s Days event to raise funds for Cash for Kids. As part of their planning for the event, they had previously contacted us and asked if we would be able to support them by providing prizes for the auction or raffle.
We were happy to help and duly provided two boxes of doughnuts, which reportedly “went down a treat.”
The event went very well and, in all, raised £6,500 for the charity. The Farleys Team wrote to say:
“This is by far a record-breaking total. The funds will be going straight to Cash for Kids to help them continue with the vital support they offer to disadvantaged children in Lancashire. With the current cost of living crisis, it cannot be understated the impact these funds will have.”
Cash for Kids is a grant-giving charity based in the UK. It seeks to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people who may have additional needs, or who may be affected by poverty, illness or neglect.
The charity wrote to Farleys, noting:
Cash for Kids asked us to pass this message on:
“This (donation) means we can directly support 182 children and their families through our emergency fund helping them to put food on the table and heat their homes.
“To all the guests, thank you so much for supporting our charity and helping to support disadvantaged children and young people in our local area. The money raised cannot happen without you and your kindness.”
