Yorkshire law firm Coles Solicitors has presented a cheque for £10,319 to Yorkshire Cancer Research following a year of fundraising.
Staff members at the firm, which has its head office in Northallerton and nine other offices in Yorkshire and the North East, supported the charity with various activities throughout the year.
Thousands of pounds were raised at a ball held at Solberge Hall, Newby Wiske, where guests enjoyed live music, food and drink, raffles and a high quality prize auction.
Clients also had the option to choose to add a £1 donation to their bill and any money that could not be reunited with clients was also donated to the charity.
Coles Solicitors has since been nominated for the Charitable Business Award in the 2017 Yorkshire Choice Awards, which will be announced on April 1.
Peter Gibson, managing director at Coles Solicitors, said: “As a firm with offices across Yorkshire choosing a charity for the year to partner with and drive community engagement and staff involvement for a unified cause across our entire network, Yorkshire Cancer Research fitted the bill perfectly.”
Stephanie Jones, corporate fundraising officer at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: “We’d like to thank all the staff at Coles Solicitors and everybody who supported them during their year of fundraising. We very much appreciate all the hard work and dedication that the team put into fundraising, especially organising the ball.
“The money raised will help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer by raising awareness of cancer and how to prevent it, promoting the national cancer screening programmes and supporting innovative research projects, from diagnosis to end of life care.”
