Eleven charities, community and sporting organisations in Yorkshire are sharing grants totalling £12,032 from the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust.
Those to receive funds range from Mr Hoggle Doggle, which donates toys to needy young people, Hull Foodbank, a carers group, several sports clubs and a women’s centre, which provides free English classes.
The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust was officially launched in April 2012 to mark the 15th anniversary of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in compensation claims for personal injury, medical negligence and professional negligence. The firm serves clients in England and Wales from three offices in Hull, one in Leeds and one in the West Midlands.
Every three months, the Trust will give up to £15,000 to a variety of organisations, each receiving up to £1,000, a possible total of £60,000 a year. The latest awards follow those made in July 2012 when 13 charities, community and sporting organisations in Yorkshire shared grants worth a total of £11,276.00.
The aim of the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust is to encourage grassroots activities in Yorkshire which support local communities and promote sport, health, wellbeing and educational aspiration.
Neil Hudgell, Managing Director of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, said: “We are once again delighted to be able to help a wide variety of organisations which are clearly having such a positive impact and helping their local communities.
“We would like to encourage eligible organisations from across Yorkshire to apply for the funding as we hope the Trust will benefit as many people in the county as possible.”
The trust is administered by the Hull and East Yorkshire Community Foundation.
Nigel Mills, Chief Executive of the HEYCF, said: “We are delighted to be involved in running the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust. It’s an example of corporate social responsibility that is making a real difference to many smaller organisations and charities, particularly in the challenging economic climate we are all now operating in. We welcome applications and are happy to help and advise any group thinking of applying to the trust for funding.”
