Leading North West law firm Napthens has announced the launch of the Napthens Foundation, a charity set up to support causes across the North West that are important to the business and its workforce.
With an aim to raise £15,000 in its first year, the foundation has been set up to provide relief to those in need by reason of education, youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage. The firm will support the foundation, through donations, help with event organisation, fundraising or promotion of events.
Inaugural appointees to the foundation’s committee, set to be reviewed on an annual basis, are made up from a mix of colleagues from across Napthens’ various regional offices, including HR and Operations Director, Nicola Mason, as well as Clare Lennon from Charities Trust, registered charity number (327489), who has also joined the board, as Napthens has partnered with Charities Trust to administer the foundation.
Planning is underway to create a calendar of events for the foundation, which the committee look forward to sharing with colleagues and clients in the coming months.
Nicola Mason, HR and Operations Director at Napthens said: “Napthens has been a long-standing supporter to many local charities, with our teams across the North West coming together to support important local causes. Many of our annual fundraising events, such as our clay pigeon shoots and cheese and wine events have become key dates in the calendar that our internal teams, clients and charity partners look forward to each year. The creation of this foundation will align our charitable efforts and make the greatest impact possible.”
Shru Morris, CEO at Napthens, said: “Relationships are at the heart of everything we do at Napthens and we always look to engage with stakeholders on a deeper level, ensuring we make a real difference to our communities across the North West, the Napthens Foundation will help us take this to new heights.”
Napthens Foundation is administered by Charities Trust (Charity Registration No: 327489)
