Leading South East law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore is delighted to announce today that the Alzheimer’s Society has become its official charity for 2013-2015.
Thomson Snell & Passmore selects a different charity to benefit from its fundraising activities every two years. All members of the firm are given the opportunity to vote on a shortlist of four charities and this year the Alzheimer’s Society was the clear winner with 62% of votes.
Thomson Snell & Passmore will be working in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Society to organise fundraising events throughout the firm and the local community. Events organised for the autumn include a ‘Big Blue Breakfast’ to launch Thomson Snell & Passmore’s involvement with the charity, and a sponsored walk at Leeds Castle.
Alzheimer’s Society staff and volunteers provide over 2,000 services to people affected by dementia. Local services include day care and home care for people with dementia, as well as support and befriending services to help partners and families cope with the demands of caring.
James Partridge, Senior Partner at Thomson Snell & Passmore, said:
“We are delighted to be involved with such a worthwhile organisation. The overwhelming majority of the firm voted for the Alzheimer’s Society, clearly demonstrating that this is a cause close to our hearts.
The firm has selected a charity that complements the services provided by our private client team of specialist lawyers, many of whom are ranked as ‘Leaders in their Field’, with a wealth of knowledge and experience in providing advice on the law as it affects the elderly and vulnerable. We are also members of the Solicitors for the Elderly.
The Alzheimer’s Society does fantastic work with those suffering from dementia and their families. We greatly look forward to supporting them over the next two years.
