Article date: 11/02/2015
Higgs & Sons has been thanked for raising almost £30,000 for The Prince's Trust over the last two years.
As the firm's nominated charity for 2013 and 2014, staff raised a staggering £27,106.50 through a variety of events, fundraisers and partnerships.
Trainee Solicitor Joe Cowles attended a Prince's Trust Celebrate Success event at Villa Park where he received thanks and well-earned certificates for the Higgs team members who contributed.
Sonia Kaur, Corporate Partnership Manager for The Prince's Trust, said: "I am overwhelmed by the commitment Higgs & Sons has shown to The Prince's Trust for two years now, you have all been an absolute delight to work with and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the team.
"The fundraising amount both years has been phenomenal and we are very grateful to have had your support.
"Both years you have dramatically influenced our work in Dudley and have helped us support more young people than ever before. This would not have been possible without the commitment of our corporate supporters such as Higgs & Sons."
The Higgs Corporate Social Responsibility programme is headed up by Tim Jones. He said: "The success of our CSR programme has been the support from our people who have demonstrated a clear desire to help the community in which they live and work - community matters.
"Overall we have had a fantastic couple of years, and we have been absolutely delighted to have been part of The Prince's Trust in supporting young people within the Dudley area."
In 2014, Higgs undertook a number of fundraising events for The Prince's Trust including a 'bike ride to Rio', a 5-a-side football competition, an All Stars football match against Aston Villa Football Club and a charity quiz.
Trainees from the company took part in the Million Makers project which raised £10,000, which contributed to the year's overall sum donated to The Prince's Trust last year of £15,004.95.
In 2013 Higgs raised £12,101.55.
The law firm's chosen charity for 2015 is the Alzheimer's Society.
Higgs & Sons is based in the heart of the Black Country at the Waterfront Business Park in Brierley Hill. The growing team now boasts 100 plus specialist lawyers available to support clients in a comprehensive range of business and private sectors.
