Our Local Community PartnershipsTinsdills
At Tinsdills, the local community is a key pillar of our company ethos. We love to play a role in contributing to and helping our local community thrive.
We’re more than just a law firm – we support local projects, charities and sports clubs throughout Staffordshire and Cheshire, giving back to these organisations wherever possible, making a positive impact through our involvement for our clients, staff and general public alike.
Corporate Charity Partners
We’re proud to have supported Douglas Macmillan Hospice for several years – achieving Bronze and Silver Awards for our donations during this time. But we haven’t stopped there, each year we also sponsor the Douglas Macmillan 5k which sees members of the team dusting off their running shoes to help raise funds for this incredible charity.
More recently we re-evaluated how we get involved with local charities, and with a desire to make a wider impact on the local community, we made the decision to move away from focusing on one ‘corporate charity’, instead choosing to support a variety of initiatives throughout Staffordshire and Cheshire alongside our long-standing partnership with Douglas Macmillan Hospice. To date we have worked with, Alice Charity, local food banks, Headway, Children In Need and The Donna Louise Trust.
Throughout the year, our colleagues attend quiz evenings for charity and regularly take part in food donation drives supporting our local food bank.
Getting creative with each of our fundraisers is almost as satisfying as the fundraising itself. Last year, as part of Douglas Macmillan’s ‘Bring a Pound’ campaign, we created a balloon tombola which saw our colleagues bursting balloons around the office to raise almost £130.
We also focus our attention to some of the region’s smaller charities who are incredible at the work they do. We are proud supporters of Alice Charity, a charity which works with vulnerable children and families without basic living necessities to provide them with vital supplies as part of Alice’s Peoples Pantry – with a view to breaking the cycle of poverty, and reducing the impact these hardships can bring on young people’s lives.
Every year we enjoy supporting Children In Need. We encourage our colleagues to be imaginative with fundraising concepts and in 2019, we held a dress down day whilst hosting a classic ‘how many sweets in the jar’ competition to raise £110 for a wonderful charity close to many of our team’s hearts.
Local Sports Team Sponsorships
Throughout Staffordshire and Cheshire, we’re dedicated supporters of local sports clubs including Trentham Rugby Club, Leek Rugby Club, Sandbach Football Club, Blythe Bridge Marvels and the Red Street Eagles.
In addition, we sponsor a Tee at Wolstanton Golf Club with our team regularly taking part in many of their Charity Golf Days helping to raise funds for a variety of initiatives city-wide.
We’re all about people at Tinsdills and as a successful law firm, it’s incredibly important to ensure wherever possible we’re committing time and resource to support our local community through events, donations and volunteering.
