Birketts' teams are 'Walking Home for Christmas'
Teams from across Birketts, the full service, top 100 law firm based in the East of England, are putting their best foot forward and ‘Walking Home For Christmas’.
The charity walk, organised by Norfolk-based Walking With The Wounded, raises funds to reintegrate homeless and other vulnerable veterans into society and lead an independent life through employment.
Over the past two years, Birketts undertook seven walks and raised over £3,000. This year, we are getting involved again. With walkers from our Cambridge, Chelmsford, Ipswich and Norwich offices taking part, we are hoping to raise even more for this very worthy cause.
Paul Palik, Senior Associate at Birketts, said: “We are looking forward to Walking Home For Christmas for the third year running. Not only is it a worthy cause but it’s also great for team building and a rewarding way to spend time with colleagues outside of the office. Each year we try and go a slightly longer route and have found that our feet don’t hurt as much knowing that the funds raised will help the most disadvantaged ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen move closer to having a home next Christmas.”
Jonathan Agar, CEO of Birketts, who is taking part, added: “By walking with us or making a donation you will directly support Walking With The Wounded's programmes to proactively reach out to the most ‘at risk’ ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen with mental, physical or social injuries and support them to regain their independence after walking in far more dangerous environments for us. I’m delighted that this fantastic initiative is now being supported by all four of our offices.”
Walking With The Wounded Events and Partnerships Manager Andy Sloan commented: “Birketts has shown outstanding support for our wounded ex-servicemen and women over the last few years and to have all four offices involved in our Christmas campaign this year is fantastic. Thank you to everyone taking part at Birketts and we look forward to hearing how it goes and seeing some fun photos!”
