North East law firm Tilly Bailey & Irvine continue to do its bit for the local community, raising over £1,100 from recent charity fundraisers.
The Dementia-friendly law firm stepped out to support Alzheimer’s Research UK with an ‘Office To Office Dash’ on Sunday 22 July 2018, as part of the Running Down Dementia programme.
Staff members from across the firm’s offices in Stockton, Hartlepool and Wynyard completed the seven-mile route between the Stockton and Wynyard offices.
The total raised from the single event surpassed the £260 mark, adding to an already eye-catching total raised by staff this summer.
Helen Elstob, Senior Associate Solicitor, commented “It was a fantastic day, with colleagues from across our offices coming together to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK. Everyone did really well.
“We also have a team who has signed up to complete the ‘Running Down Dementia’ challenge. They are 6th on the distance leader board and the total raised so far is over £1,100, combining the funds raised in the Office to Office Dash of over £260.
“Dementia affects loved ones, their families and their friends, and we are dedicated and proud to support this charity.”
Both Anna Barber and Mark Ellis completed the route in 1hr11mins and were first to make it to Wynyard.
On the same weekend, Managing Partner Carolyn Tilly was among those taking part in Stockton’s Bark in the Park event, helping to raise funds for Age UK Teesside with the help of a trio of pups.
The firm will also be hosting an Afternoon Tea in aid of the Alice House Hospice on Thursday 13 September.
Managing Partner Carolyn Tilly said “We’re delighted to put our name to this event in support of the fantastic work that continues to be done by Alice House Hospice. We’re expecting a wonderful turnout of fellow local businesses across the North East for a great day of activities and networking, and we hope that we will all be able to make a significant difference by contributing and helping those that need that support most of all.”
