hlw Keeble Hawson’s Doncaster office has donated over £1,400 to Changing Lives which provides specialist support for 6,000 socially excluded and vulnerable people every month.
The nationwide charity’s pioneering and innovative programmes are instrumental in helping people to make positive, lasting changes. Its support services for women and their families include dedicated recovery centres, temporary and long-term accommodation opportunities – and employment and volunteering opportunities.
The firm’s family team has been working with Changing Lives in Doncaster since September 2016 – offering a fortnightly free legal clinic on a Tuesday between 10am and midday. Earlier this year hlw Keeble Hawson employees also hosted a special racing event via a big screen to boost funds for the charity.
Changing Lives group chief executive, Stephen Bell OBE, said: “We value our partnership with hlw Keeble Hawson whose backing is instrumental in our work to engage with communities who are at the very edges of society – whether this be through rough sleeping, suffering from mental health problems – or experiencing exploitation and violence. Thank you to all the team at the Doncaster office for their continued support.”
Paul Goel, managing partner of hlw Keeble Hawson’s Doncaster office, said: “Changing Lives is an inspiring organisation which works tirelessly to improve the lives of the people it supports. We are delighted to help to make a difference to its incredible work.”
A champion of giving back to its local communities, hlw Keeble Hawson is one of Yorkshire’s biggest law firms in Yorkshire with offices in Doncaster, Leeds and Sheffield.
