hlw Keeble Hawson Marks 400 Hour Pro Bono Milestone

22nd July 2016

hlw Keeble Hawson's private client team has clocked up 400 hours of pro bono support to boost a wealth of worthy charities across South Yorkshire.

The 400 hours, which amounts to 50 working days, spans a period from March 2015 to June 2016 and reinforces the firm's commitment to make a difference to its local communities. As one of the region's largest law practices with offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Doncaster, hlw Keeble Hawson takes part in wide-ranging fundraising events for organisations including Cathedral Archer Project, Lost Chord and Safe at Last. A recent example has seen clinical negligence specialist Natalie Cosgrove - the new president of the Sheffield & District Law Society - and three colleagues embarking on a five hour spinathon to boost funds for Sheffield Mencap and Gateway and Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice by £750. The firm's senior personnel also take on trustee roles and key positions with organisations including AGE UK Sheffield, the Sheffield Town Trust and Taptonholme Residential Care Home. The practice also runs regular wills clinics free of charge for West Park Hospital Cancer Charity and Age UK Sheffield. Said Michele Todd, partner and charity law specialist at hlw Keeble Hawson: -The 400 hours milestone reflects our deep-rooted commitment to our corporate social responsibility. We are delighted to draw on the firm's expertise to add value to these charities who work relentlessly to make a difference to the lives of the local people they support.
