FJG Foundation Jubilee Fundraising
8 June 2012 by Ellen Petersen
Award-winning regional law firm QualitySolicitors FJG entered into the Jubilee spirit with a tea party last week and celebrated by raising over £550 for their new charity initiative the FJG Foundation.
After years of fundraising for a nominated annual charity, the FJG Foundation has been set up by partners and staff at Quality Solicitors FJG for the benefit of and to support various local charitable and worthy causes. The idea is simple: by continuing to raise money throughout the year with sponsored events and fundraising initiatives, FJG can support and make a positive difference to more worthy causes than ever before. All the money raised through the Foundation will go back to the communities in which FJG operates.
To launch the Foundation, FJG hosted their very own Jubilee Tea Party at the FJG offices with lashings of ginger beer and home-made cakes contributed by staff members. The event was extremely well attended on the day with a host of local corporate attendees showing their support and contributing to a fundraising effort of over £550 through cake sales, donations and a prize raffle.
FJG Foundation Chairperson, Ellen Petersen said: “It is brilliant that we have launched the FJG Foundation with such a successful event. Not only did we celebrate the Jubilee in style but we have raised valuable funds for the Foundation with our total fundraising now already standing at £1870. It was great to see the event so well supported by local businesses as all the funds will be going back into the local communities in which we operate and we are looking forward to making our next fundraising event as successful as the first.”
