Goughs Solicitors names Julia’s House as its Charity of the Year
The firm, which has seven offices across the county, will organise and partake in a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year, starting with the Julia’s House Great Wiltshire Walk in July.
Some of the more daring members of the team will even take part in The Big Jump skydive in September.
Julia’s House is a children’s hospice which also provides practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at the charity’s hospices.
With a children’s hospice in Devizes, where one of Goughs offices is based, the firm says it was the perfect connection to build.
Emma Taylor, a partner at Goughs who oversaw the Charity of the Year selection process, said: “There are so many local charities that provide essential advice and support to the local community and as such it became very difficult to select only one.
“However, we were all in admiration of the work undertaken by Julia’s House in caring for children and families at a time when they need it the most. We really want to help them make a real difference to children across Wiltshire and Dorset.”
Alice Chalmers, business development & corporate fundraiser at Julia’s House, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Julia’s House has been chosen as Goughs Charity of the Year.
“We’re almost entirely reliant on donations to provide our vital care in the community and at our Devizes hospice, so this support from Goughs will make a real different to the seriously ill children and families that we support.
“We are excited to work with the team at Goughs and see what great fundraising activities they take on throughout the year.”
