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.

2023 Charity of the Year

We are delighted to support The Mustard Tree Macmillan Cancer and Information Support Centre as our Charity of the Year for 2023.

The Mustard Tree is a specialist organisation that support and meets the needs of those living with cancer. The centre is open to pre-booked appointments with counsellors, therapists, support specialists and benefits advisors and also offers video link appointments and telephone consultations.

Throughout the year, we will be raising money through an internal staff fundraising initiatives and events such as a 50/50 draw, bake sales, quiz nights and much more.

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.
