Morecrofts seeks new local charity partner

Morecrofts Solicitors is on the lookout for a new charity partner to receive its fundraising support over the next 12 months.

The law firm, which has an office in Prescot, is appealing for charities in the Liverpool City Region to come forward and nominate themselves for the role, which will see Morecrofts raise funds through a variety of events and activities throughout the year.

Morecrofts is renowned for its wide range of community engagement and received the Work in the Community award at last year’s Liverpool Law Society Awards.

Each year, the firm appoints a specific charity partner, voted for by members of staff. The most recent charity partner was the For Ava Foundation, for which Morecrofts has raised more than £25,000 during a two-year period.

Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts, said: “We are passionate about supporting our communities, so it’s important to us that the organisation has an impact on local people.

“Every year we support our charity partner through all manner of activities such as raffles, dress down days or sponsored events, as well as through our prestigious Merseyside Independent Business Awards.

“We don’t simply aspire to raise funds for our chosen charities, we like to help raise their profiles, improve their professional networks or find any other ways to support their specific development objectives.”

Charities who wish to apply for this year’s partnership must be based in the Liverpool City Region and have a direct impact on people who live in Merseyside. The partnership period will run from April 1 2020.

Morecrofts is particularly keen to hear from lesser known charities who would benefit from the additional profile this partnership brings, as well as the funds raised.

Deadline to apply is 5pm on Friday 21 February through the following link.
