At Wolferstans, we believe in the power of giving back to our community. We are committed to supporting local charities and causes that make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

We are proud to support various charities through our Charity of the Year commitments, where we provide dedicated support and resources to help them achieve their mission. In addition to our focused efforts, we maintain strong connections with a network of local charities. Our commitment to philanthropy goes beyond our legal expertise; it's a reflection of our dedication to making a difference and building a stronger, more inclusive community for all.

2024 Charity of the Year

This year, we are delighted to be supporting four local charities, who each play a vital role in our community:

  • The Elder Tree - A small local charity that support over 1650 people in the area by providing befriending, services and support to enable them to continue to live independently and without isolation. Those they support are vulnerable, frail, socially isolated and may suffer from a range of disabilities such as mental health issues, dementia or learning difficulties.
  • Plymouth Highbury Trust’s Parent Advocacy Project – An independent advocacy service for parents and women with a learning disability.
  • The Phoebe Hoskin Trust -  A local charity which provides memory boxes to families who have experienced baby loss. The Phoebe Hoskin Trust also run the 'Forever and Always' Garden at Derriford Hospital.
  • Plymouth Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Club - Reducing social isolation and promoting friendship amongst our veteran community.

We look forward to a year of successful fundraising and raising vital awareness for each of the charities we are supporting. If you would like to donate to or Charity of the Year fund, please visit our PayPal page.

2023 Charity of the Year

In 2023, we were honoured to support a charity that is close to our heart - The Mustard Tree Macmillan Cancer and Information Support Centre.

Throughout the year, we completed various fundraising activties including a hike to the top of Ben Nevis, and we supported the charity in raising awaerness of the vital work they do.

We were extremely proud to raise a total of £12,500 and hope it will enable the Mustard Tree to continue providing support to those affected by cancer and their families.

2022 Charity of the Year

In 2022, we supported Headway Plymouth and raised £4,250.00. This was raised in numerous ways, including Team Wolfies taking part in the Plymouth Half Marathon, a Hike for Headway across Dartmoor, selling santa hats and much more.

In addition to fundraising, colleagues gave their time and helped to decorate the Headway Centre, where those who have acquired a brain injury and their families attend rehabilitation and recovery activities, giving it a fresh new welcoming look.
