Exeter and Crediton based local law firm Veitch Penny are celebrating after raising over £1,600 for their charity of the year, the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. The firm has spent the past 12 months actively fundraising and are delighted to be able to give the amount to such a deserving cause.
The Devon Air Ambulance was voted as the Veitch Penny charity of the year by staff, who recognised the need to keep the region’s two Air Ambulances flying and wanted to contribute to the estimated £4 million annually needed in order to keep both helicopters airborne.
In their fundraising, Veitch Penny Solicitors, itself a proud part of the Devon community, recognised the need not only to support a local charity, but to work with other local businesses and institutions to help others. As part of the series of fundraising activities, the law firm was delighted to have worked closely with Buckfastleigh Primary School as part of the Christmas Card Design Competition.
Managing Partner, Charles Dowell, who heads up the Private Client department and whose advice includes Moving Home, Wills & Trusts, said of Devon Air Ambulance Trust, "It is a very deserving charity and the work that they do and the service they provide for the region is fantastic and invaluable.”
The whole firm was involved and enjoyed raising the £1689.49 total, which included events such as the Britain’s Got Talent styled Forrero Rocher Challenge, Dress Down Days, raffles, and numerous running events, particular thanks to the IT Manager, Anthony Martin and Associate Solicitor, Lorna Herring who trained very hard for the Great West Run.
