Philanthropy is always very near family businesses hearts. Some of us help local schools and charities, others give their time to a worthy cause helping people less fortunate than ourselves.Each year the Practice has run a Charity Networking Bash raising funds for organisations such as Mary Stevens Hospice, The Black Country Museum and most recently the St Marys Youth Project – a local charity based in Cleobury Mortimer.
We also like to celebrate what our members are doing by making a noise in social media so below are details of what’s been happening within the Practice as well as ourselves.
We all need a hand from time to time – it's just in the DNA of a family business and it’s good to recognise the efforts of families, employees and organisations alike.
We are delighted to announce a long term Charity Partner relationship with Edwards Trust.
For 29 years Edward's Trust have been supporting bereaved families
Edward’s Trust was set up in 1989 by Peter and Hilary Dent in memory of their son Edward, who died aged 7 of cancer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Over 25 years later the Trust still continues to provide much-needed support to bereaved families. Edward’s Trust provides holistic family bereavement services supporting children, young people and parents across the West Midlands.
We provide support to parents bereaved, or about to bereaved, of their son or daughter – whatever the age of their child. We also provide support to children and young people of school age who are bereaved, or are about to be bereaved, of a parent, significant carer or sibling. A ‘Wellbeing in Bereavement’ service includes complementary therapies and respite bereavement care for bereaved parents and carers. Training and consultation for professionals working with bereaved families or families who are about to be bereaved.
