Hudgell Solicitors’ staff raises £500 for Hull Women’s Aid and donate toys and gifts for Christmas.

Hull Women’s Aid is a charity close to our hearts and Hudgell Solicitors are ‘made-up’ this Christmas with the efforts of our staff who have raised £500 for Hull Women’s Aid in December.  

Hull Women’s Aid is a charity close to our hearts and Hudgell Solicitors are ‘made-up’ this Christmas with the efforts of our staff who have raised £500 for Hull Women’s Aid in December.  

Staff from the charity came to our office in the run up to Christmas to receive the cheque along with donations of toys and gifts. 

Hudgell Solicitors is proud to have chosen this local organisation as a charity of choice for 2022 for the work it does in the local community helping to change lives for the better.  

Hudgell solicitor Michelle Maltby hand-crafted Christmas cards and tote bags over the festive season to raise £500 for the charity and bring some festive cheer to the office, with her designs raising hundreds of pounds but efforts don’t stop there. Last month, staff arranged a collection of essential items for families staying at the refugee and filled three car loads of perishable foods, clothing, toiletries and toys. It has been a real team effort.  

Hull Women’s Aid is the sole provider of safe and secure refuge accommodation on the north bank of the Humber for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. 

Over last 12 months the charity has received almost 800 referrals for support and has accommodated 54 families in the refuge, with 98% saying they now felt safer. 

Almost 500 women accessed the live chat facility, which was set up during the pandemic to help with difficult domestic situations. 

Hull Women’s Aid relies heavily on fundraising to keep their often lifesaving services running. Funds help provide safe accommodation, mobile phones, food, clothing and safety planning. 

Michelle Donnelly Chief Executive Officer Hull Women’s Aid said the funds would make a real difference as £150 can provide a week’s safe accommodation, £10 can buy a wellbeing pack for a woman, £15 can buy a child a birthday gift and £30 can buy a moving on hamper for a family.  

“I just want to send my sincere thanks to Hudgell Solicitors for all the support and amazing gifts provided to Hull Women’s Aid. We have been able to help so many families with your kind generosity.  

“On behalf of all the women and children we support, thank you so much, the money will go towards helping those in need.” 

Hudgell Solicitors specialises in criminal injuries compensation claims and our team supports many clients affected by domestic abuse. 

Elizabeth Maliakal, Solicitor at Hudgell Solicitors and Trustee of Hull Women’s Aid said: 

“I was fortunate to be able to visit the Hull Women’s Aid refuge last month to see first-hand the wonderful work they do for women and children escaping domestic abuse. The staff’s dedication and commitment in looking after the women and children in the refuge was inspiring. 

“I am so pleased Hudgell Solicitors have raised money and donated gifts as part of the Hull Women’s Aid Christmas toy and gift appeal.  

“A special thank you to Michelle Maltby who made the most beautiful Christmas cards and bags sold in aid of the charity. I know how appreciative Hull Women’s aid will be for the money and donations. “
