Charity Begins At Home Thanks To Kind Hearted Solicitors

  • Posted on

A charity initiative which begins and ends in Oldham with cash from conveyancing being donated to charity has been launched this summer, thanks to the property team at Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers.

For every house or commercial premises bought or sold in Oldham over the next year the Action Together Fund will benefit from the new charity fundraising initiative.

Pearson Solicitor’s property team wanted to support a charity and keep it local.  With that in mind business development manager, Suzanne Wright approached the Action team, who help local community and charity groups with funding, management and development.

“The property team felt very strongly that we needed to support a local charity and so from the start of this financial year we will make a financial donation for every matter we deal with in the OL postcodes, £1 per house and £2 for commercial premises.  It’s never been a busier time for us property wise, we’re dealing with hundreds of transactions every year and so this should be a great way to support a much-deserving local charity,” said Sarah Major, from Pearson’s

Commenting on the inventive fundraising gesture, Action Together’s Chief Executive, Liz Windsor-Welsh, added:

“We are excited about this new partnership with Pearson Solicitors and want to express our thanks to such a forward thinking business for this great initiative.  We’re proud to be working with them for the benefit of people in Oldham.”
