Michelmores presented with Lifetime Achievement Award at The C Group Awards
Michelmores has been recognised with a Lifetime Achievement Award at The C Group's annual awards dinner on Friday 2 October 2015 – for its continued support of the Devon-based charity.
The C Group, founded in 2008, provides ongoing support to Royal Marines in need across the UK – including those who have been injured, former Royal Marines resettling into civilian life and families of both serving and former Royal Marines.
One of three awards presented on the night, the Lifetime Achievement Award recognises the individual or business who has made the biggest contribution to the C Group in recent times.
Michelmores' support over the years has included helping individuals with start-ups, business advice and banking advice. Most recently, the firm has been involved in a house building project for a wheelchair-bound royal marine, including providing legal advice on the site acquisition and build.
Steve James, Chairman of The C Group said:
"Michelmores has supported us from the outset − firstly advising the charity on its formation and since then, has provided specialist advice as we have evolved.
"They have held events not only to raise funds for the charity but also to raise awareness. However, most importantly they have advised a steady stream of Royal Marines in need, on such diverse matters from business start-ups to bankruptcy – the majority of this work has been undertaken pro bono.
"In the opinion of the charity, this firm is a heavyweight in every respect not only in terms of the advice they provide but in their CSR credentials, which are a beacon to all other businesses."
Malcolm Dickinson, Managing Partner at Michelmores said:
"We're so proud to receive such an accolade and feel privileged to have been involved with The C Group since the charity was founded.
The C Group undertakes such important work supporting Royal Marines in need right across the country, and we look forward supporting this great charity for many more years to come."
