Humphries Kirk donates more than £940 in aid of the Indonesia Tsunami Appeal

| Published on November 27, 2018

Leading Dorset and Somerset law firm, Humphries Kirk, held a designated ‘Dress Down Day’ last month in aid of the Indonesia Tsunami Appeal, donating £946 in total.

The combined Humphries Kirk offices raised an impressive total of £473 via donations from members of staff to wear more casual attire to work in return for a charity donation. This sum was matched by the firm and thus a total of £946 was donated to the appeal.

The money raised by the law firm will go towards providing vital support to the survivors of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia. The donation will allow Disasters Emergency Committee member charities to respond by providing temporary shelter, emergency healthcare, food, clean drinking water and sanitation services.

Katharine Jones, senior partner at Humphries Kirk, commented: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank staff for getting involved with our Dress Down Day and helping to raise an impressive fundraising total for such a worthy cause.”

James Winterkorn, philanthropy & partnerships manager at Disasters Emergency Committee, commented: “On behalf of the DEC and our Member Charities, please accept our sincere gratitude to all at Humphries Kirk for your generous contribution to the DEC Indonesia Tsunami Appeal. The funds raised will help to provide essential relief, including shelter and clean water, to the survivors of this terrible disaster.”

Humphries Kirk has offices in Bournemouth, Parkstone, Poole, Swanage, Wareham, Dorchester and Crewkerne and has an international network of lawyers. Visit for more information.
