The team at Wiltshire-based law firm Goughs Solicitors is celebrating its recent fundraising work for local children’s hospice, Julia’s House.
Through a variety of fundraising events including a sky dive, an in-house Bake Off, various dress-down days, a pub quiz and a ‘Buy-Your-Birthday-Off’ initiative, the team at Goughs is delighted to have been able to support families when they need it most by raising over £3,000 over the last 12 months.
Not a typical children’s hospice, Julia’s House aims to provide practical and emotional support for families accross Wiltshire and Dorset who are caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at the charity’s hospices. With a children’s hospice in Devizes – where Goughs also has an office – it was the perfect connection to build.
Emma Taylor, Partner at Goughs, who oversees the charitable arm of the firm, said, “We were all in admiration of the work undertaken by Julia’s House in caring for children and families at a time when they need it the most and therefore really wanted to help them make a real difference to children across Wiltshire and Dorset.”
Natalie Kemp, who bravely took part in the Sky Dive on behalf of Goughs, added, “This was really the most amazing experience ever, I recommend it to everyone! It is brilliant to be part of a progressive and forward-thinking firm who allow us the freedom to get out and about in our communities to contribute to such worthy causes.”
Goughs now has seven offices based throughout Wiltshire and over 100 members of staff. The firm provides legal services for both individuals and businesses including: Divorce, Separation, Finance and Children, Employment Law, Wills, Trusts & Probate, Commercial and Residential Property services, Real Estate and Corporate services.
