Hudgell Solicitors™ | Community | £150,000 invested back into the community in 2018

£150,000 invested back into the community in 2018



From supporting community projects and organisations to staff giving their time to compete in corporate challenges, redecorate housing for the homeless and even sleep out on the streets, Hudgell Solicitors staff volunteered over 100 hours and gave back £150,000 to the communities the firm serves in 2018.

At the heart of our community work has again been The Neil Hudgell Trust, which continues to invest back into local life.

A highlight of 2018 was three successful inaugural charity partnerships supporting the homeless in Hull, Leeds and London, voted for by employees at the start of the year.

Staff wrapped up and faced the elements to raise extra funds for the Leeds-based Simon on the Streets charity, which tackles entrenched homelessness, by spending a night sleeping rough.

Michelle Nurse, Stacey Flegg, Tracy Chapman and Danielle Gaylard all survived a chilly but dry September evening, with funds raised matched by the firm.

In Hull, team members Helen Saunders, Andrew Petherbridge, Karl Griffin and Gemma Bontoft successfully completed a 26-mile relay run at the Hull Marathon, raising additional funds for the Hull Homeless Community Project, with individual efforts again matched by the firm.

Another new partnership for 2018 was with the Artlink project to provide a series of activities over a seven-month period, working with users of the charity to create a series of artworks ahead of a final exhibition planned for next spring.

Support was also provided for the West London Mission, another charity supporting the homeless and which has around 100 street homeless people visit every day.

Funds were donated to the charity’s Money Champions programme, which aims to equip people with the skills and confidence they need to manage their money well and was used to create financial health packs for 100 people, containing essential tools, resources and guidance to help them manage their day to day finances.

Staff from Hudgell Solicitors also helped deliver interactive workshops aimed at helping to improve financial and digital capability of those using the service.

Sponsorship provided for sports clubs, events and initiatives for children

Many initiatives over the year focused on bringing educational benefits to young children, including the Big Malarkeys Children Festival in Hull, the ‘Run With It’ outreach programme, which funded six classes from local primary schools and Young Enterprise Yorkshire.

The firm again provided vital sponsorship support to ensure a number of local community events were a success, including the Humber Bridge Half Marathon, the Hornsea Third Marathon, The Disability Sports Awards and the Classics In The Park concert.

Investment into grassroot sport also continued through its sponsorship of Hull & East Yorkshire Powerchair Football, Barton Old Boys FC, Goole FC and Bridlington Town AFC, whilst boxer Tommy Coyle continues to be supported in running his two boxing academies, which offer free memberships to under-17s.

Jo Hudgell, chair of the Neil Hudgell Trust, said: “We are extremely proud of the work of the Trust and its commitment to supporting many inspirational groups of people in the areas in and around our offices in Hull, Leeds and London, helping to make a meaningful difference to lives.

“It has been wonderful to see such high levels of staff involvement and staff using their volunteer days to support the work of the Trust. Staff have also raised over £5,000 this year from dress down days and fundraising events such as the Hull Marathon, the Hornsea Third Marathon and The CEO Sleep Out. It has been a real team effort.

“We place great value on the work we do it in the community and we will continue to invest back into the community in 2019 and beyond. We have exciting plans for our community involvement over the next 12 months, through the Trust and other local partnerships, and expect to be making announcements early into the new year.”
