Staff from a firm of Hartlepool solicitors have been thinking of others over the festive period.
The staff from Smith & Graham, based in Church Street Chambers, held a number of fun events in the run-up to Christmas, including a hot chocolate and cookie exchange day, a Christmas meal at a local restaurant, and participation in ITV’s ‘Text Santa’ Christmas Jumper event in aid of MacMillan, Make a Wish and Save The Children.
Office manager Julie Bradshaw said: “I felt it very important that we, as a long-established firm in Hartlepool, give something to those in need within the local community, as well as enjoying the celebrations ourselves.”
Staff were asked to being in donations for the Hartlepool foodbank, and nine shopping bags full of non-perishable items from its shopping list were donated.
Smith & Graham is already heavily involved in supporting the local sporting community by sponsoring football, rugby, bowls, golf and cricket clubs.
