Wolferstans Solicitors Raise £12,500 for Mustard Tree Plymouth
In 2023, Wolferstans Solicitors proudly selected Mustard Tree Plymouth as its Charity of the Year, inspired by the invaluable support the charity provided to a beloved late colleague during their battle with cancer.
Throughout the year, the firm dedicated its time, resources, and creativity to fundraising initiatives, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to giving back to The Mustard Tree Macmillan Cancer and Information Support Centre in Plymouth.
The fundraising journey commenced with a series of bake sales and an afternoon tea extravaganza. The aroma of freshly baked goods wafted through the office, creating an atmosphere of generosity and warmth. The team also embraced the chilly season with a hot chocolate sale, offering a sweet respite during winter days, and took part in the nationwide Macmillan Coffee Morning.
In addition to satisfying sweet tooths, the firm introduced practical solutions to support the cause, such as selling custom lanyards. The staff 50/50 monthly prize draw, facilitated through payroll giving, emerged as a consistent and impactful contribution, with over £1000 raised throughout the year.
Wolferstans Solicitors extended the invitation to its peers in the community through hosting events like a Quiz Night at Boringdon Golf Club, where camaraderie and competition blended seamlessly. Another pinnacle of the year was the Ben Nevis Trek, where eight dedicated team members conquered the highest peak in the UK.
The commitment to the Mustard Tree spread beyond office walls, with collection tins strategically placed at all Wolferstans' offices and events like Armed Forces Day, a local gathering that resonates with the community's spirit. The firm also hosted a delightful Cheese and Wine Night, a sophisticated affair that brought people together in the name of charity.
Wolferstans Solicitors took an active role in the Plymouth Half Marathon, not only participating in the run for Mustard Tree but also dedicating time to help man the charity's stand at the event. This involvement further exemplifies the firm's commitment to supporting the cause in various impactful ways.
Clients played a significant role in the fundraising journey, showcasing their generosity and solidarity through donations. Their contributions, along with the collective efforts of the Wolferstans team, reflect a shared commitment to supporting Mustard Tree in its mission.
We are thrilled to announce that the total amount raised for Mustard Tree Plymouth stands at an incredible £12,500. The firm is immensely proud of this achievement and expresses its hope that this substantial donation will significantly contribute to enabling the charity to continue its exceptional work.
Mustard Tree Plymouth's impact on the lives of individuals facing cancer is unmeasurable, and the firm looks forward to continuing its support for this vital cause in the future.
