Ringrose Law staff will be ‘wearing green’ on Friday 28th March to launch their fundraising activities for their Charity of the Year – Macmillan Cancer Support.
Every year, Ringrose Law supports a local charity and this year staff voted to support Macmillan. Staff at Ringrose Law have set a fundraising target of £10,000, and will be launching their campaign at a ‘Go Green Day’ at all their six offices across Lincolnshire and Newark on Friday.
Staff will be wearing green, baking cakes and decorating their offices for Macmillan, there will also be information on Macmillan and the work they do in the local community available in Ringrose Law receptions.
Paul Cooper, Managing Partner at Ringrose Law comments;
“Many families within our firm have been affected by cancer. Ringrose are personally aware of the efforts and care the Macmillan nurses provide. It is for this reason we have chosen Macmillan as our Charity of the Year. We have set ourselves an internal target of £10,000. I am delighted and proud to see all our staff so enthusiastic and eager to help with fundraising. As a result I am confident we can reach our target and help the local community. You never know when it could be your turn.”
The firm has a full diary of fundraising events planned for the year including various sponsored walks, runs and cycle rides, several staff have volunteered to jump out of an airplane, staff family fun day in the summer, a charity fishing match and taking part in other events across the county to raise money for Macmillan…and if all that wasn’t enough they will be hosting another charity Carol Concert this November at Lincoln Cathedral, Phew!!!
Tanya Taylor, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Lincolnshire comments;
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Ringrose Law. Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face and the feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many people experience make it even harder. Now, more than ever, we need people to join our team and get involved. It’s absolutely vital that cancer services are in place in the area that can provide the information and support that is needed now and will be needed ever more in the future. In particular these services are needed in areas where there is a high incidence of cancer such as Lincolnshire. This partnership will help us to raise awareness of the needs of people affected by cancer and much needed funds to support these services. No one should face cancer alone and with the support of Ringrose Law and the local community no one will.”
