Cripps raises thousands for charity
Children and young people with significant social, emotional and behavioural difficulties are benefiting from a series of fun charity events organised by law firm Cripps which raised almost £9,000.
Lawyers and support staff from the firm took part in a talent evening, World Cup football evening, cake sales, dress down days and collections of 20p coins in Smartie tubes to raise money for the Caldecott Foundation, which is based in Ashford.
The charity provides residential care for up to 50 children and young people aged five to eighteen who have suffered severe neglect and trauma in the early stages of life. It runs five homes, two emergency and assessment centres, school and supported accommodation to bridge the gap between care and independence.
“We rely on voluntary donations to provide the children and young people in care with a better quality of life. We really appreciate it when people give up their valuable free time to support us and raise money,” said Alison Ranns, Head of Communications at the Caldecott Foundation.
