Raising money by dressing down

| Published on October 23, 2018

This year our office’s chosen charities are:

Bournemouth: The Honeypot Children’s Charity offers both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and vulnerable children, many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn.

Parkstone: Amelia’s Rainbow was set up in memory of Amelia-Grace who passed away from childhood cancer in 2010. The charity supports children in Dorset with terminal, life-limiting and serious chronic illness.

Poole: The Stroke Association, working to prevent stroke and support everyone touched by stroke, and Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust, the world’s first bone marrow register to match donors with people in desperate need.

Swanage: The Link Visiting Scheme, a small befriending service operating in Swanage and East Purbeck, and Rotary Swanage, aiming to help others whilst enjoying each other’s company.

Wareham: Lexi May Trust, supporting children with terminal illness or life-limiting conditions, Steps for Stan, raising money for Stan who was born with semilobar holoprosencephaly, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, established to provide relief from sickness and injury for the people of Dorset and Somerset, and Alzheimer’s Research UK, the UK’s leading Alzheimer’s research charity.

Dorchester: Wessex Heartbeat, aiming to help achieve the very best care for people with heart conditions treated in Wessex Cardiac Centre.

Crewkerne: Cancer Research UK, pioneering research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured, Mind, the mental health charity, Parkinson’s UK, driving better care, treatments and quality of life, and Shelter, campaigning to end homelessness and bad housing in England and Scotland.

We will also be fundraising for these organisations throughout the year with our monthly dress down days. Last year we raised £1,557 for our nominated charities.


Challenges for Charity

Lisa McKenzie from our Crewkerne office is taking part in a different challenge each month in 2018 to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK, Parkinson’s UK and Mind.

The past few months have seen her cycling 29 miles, running the Casterbridge Half Marathon, and spending the month of June baking an incredible number of sweet treats.

If you would like to support Lisa, please consider donating use the following link:

We will keep you updated on her progress. Keep an eye on our social media channels for more details.

The first glimmer of light…

The announcement this week that the construction industry and property market is once again open for business, is the first glimpse of light at the end of the lockdown economic tunnel.

HK is open for business and our specialist team of property and construction lawyers is ready to help those wishing to move home,  invest in property, refinance and undertake development.

In the following weeks more industries will reopen and our community will continue to revive. I believe that with positivity the Country can fight off, not only Covid 19, but also the economic recession that is anticipated.

We are all looking forward to a brighter future but are mindful of the sacrifices made by each and every one of us over the last few months.  I know that the  HK team are here for our clients to support them and their businesses on the journey that lies ahead.  I may not be certain of what the future holds but I am certain that we at HK are equipped to provide the advice you need. 

As a thank you for the huge support provided by front line workers we continue to offer preferential rates on selected services.
