Goughs celebrates successful charity partnership

By Nick Batten on 17 April, 2024

Wiltshire-based law firm, Goughs, is celebrating the end of a successful year supporting local Charity FearFree

FearFree helps victims of Domestic Abuse and their families, providing a full range of services with a single, easy-to-use access point. Due to its accessibility and the range of victims it supports, FearFree was chosen to be Goughs’ charity partner from April 2023 – March 2024. 

Over the course of the year, employees at Goughs raised in excess of £6,500 for the charity through a variety of fundraising efforts. The team took part in a 25km walk through the Cotswolds, two daring team members did a skydive, a few people took on the Bath Half and other events included a pub quiz, a bake-off competition and a raffle of generously donated gifts at the annual Christmas party.

Jessica Gay, Head of Fundraising at FearFree said, “We want to say a massive thank you to everyone at Goughs Solicitors for supporting us this year. It’s been inspiring to see everyone’s commitment at the firm to support our work, which is often deemed hidden and taboo, helping us raise that vital awareness of our services, break down stigmas and raise life-changing funds to help families access our service. 

“From ingenious office-based fundraisers like the Sun Flower Comp to long-distance sponsored hikes and our biannual skydive. The team has thrown themselves into supporting us and we couldn’t be more grateful. On top of this, the Family Law team has offered their specialist support to our clients and they now, volunteer to run a joint monthly legal clinic for any client to access free legal advice.” 

To continue its commitment to FearFree, Goughs has set up a free monthly Family Law clinic with the Trowbridge-based charity. The mutually beneficial partnership has been set up to truly support the communities in which they operate. 

For the current partnership year, Goughs is delighted to be supporting Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
