Thomson Hayton Winkley Solicitors have raised funds for Growing Well, from a Christmas Jumper day held in the Kendal and Windermere offices. The £140 will be donated to Growing Well, a mental health charity, organic farm and training centre based at Low Sizergh.
John Cooke, Director of Thomson Hayton Winkley, said: “We have chosen to support Growing Well as our designated Charity and this was a fun seasonal way to raise funds for the amazing work they do with volunteers. Christmas can be a crisis time for many people so it was a way to increase awareness of the work that is done all year round by this fantastic local charity.”
Growing Well Chief Executive Mary Smith added: “It’s fantastic to see Thomson Hayton Winkley staff supporting us throughout the year with initiatives such as this, following the company’s support for our summer Crowdfunder campaign. These are just the kind of business and community partnerships we really want to encourage in 2020 so we can sustain our work and empower more of the community to fundraise for us and get involved.”
