Bath law firm Royds Withy King has raised £15,000 for local mental health charity Bath Mind, thanks to fundraising activities including bake sales and charity walks.
Royds Withy King, which has offices on Midland Bridge and by Queen’s Square, has supported the local charity for the last two years and raised the money through fundraising activities such as bake sales, dress-down days and charity walks, as well as employees offering their time to volunteer with the charity.
Bath Mind promotes and nurture everyone’s mental health through the provision of information, activities, advice and support.
Their vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all, and treats people with experience of mental ill health fairly, positively and with respect.
Hannah Roper, Fundraiser at Bath Mind said: “It has been fantastic to work with and have the support of Royds Withy King over the last 2 years; not only have they supported Bath Mind financially, which enables us to continue our vital work in the local community, but also on a practical and personal level too.
“It has been great to see so many employees take a special interest in our charity and give their time to help at fundraising events and many of our support services.
“Additionally Royds Withy King have implemented many of our wellbeing in the workplace initiatives due to the relationship and it has been inspiring to see a local firm put employee wellbeing at the forefront.”
Nicola Radcliffe, head of Royds Withy King’s charities group, added: “Every two years, our lawyers and staff vote for a charity to support in each of our regions.
“It’s a brilliant opportunity to make a tangible difference, with a focus on raising money and doing something practical too.
“Our charity partners play an important role in the lives of many people who live in our local communities.
“We encourage all employees to take advantage of the two volunteer days that we offer every year and give back to our local communities.”
Royds Withy King has announced Julian House as its new charitable beneficiary for 2019-2021 based on a vote by the firm’s Oxford-based lawyers and staff.
The new relationship started in May to tie in with the start of the firm’s financial year.
