Applications to become Michelmores' official Exeter Charity of the Year now open
Michelmores is welcoming local charities, based within Devon, to apply to become the Firm's Exeter office charity partner for 2018.
The Firm will organise various fundraising activities for the chosen charity throughout the year, including the Firm's largest fundraising event, the Michelmores 5k Charity Run, which in 2016 raised over £26,000 for Exeter-based charity Balloons.
The Firm particularly welcomes charities to apply who are able to support teams of up to 20 staff to volunteer for them on a 'CSR day', given to all Michelmores staff.
Michelmores' Exeter office currently supports Balloons, a charity that provides crucial pre and post bereavement support to children and young people who have lost someone significant in their lives, in Exeter and the surrounding areas.
Applications will be shortlisted by the Firm's Charity of the Year Committee, with the final shortlist going to a staff vote. The closing date for entries is 29 September 2017.
David Thompson, Partner and Chair of the Charity of the Year Committee commented:
"It has been fantastic to support the wonderful work that Balloons continue to offer to children and young people in the local area.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to offer this support to a new, local charity – and are looking forward to receiving the applications!"
