Humphries Kirk Offer Life Education Wessex A Decade Of Support
4:09pm 4th February 2014
Dorset Solicitors Humphries Kirk are lending their support to a charity which provides health and drug prevention education to young people in the county.
It's the 10th year the law firm have teamed up with Life Education Wessex.
Over the last decade they've sponsored mobile classrooms and have hosted and attended fundraising events.
The long-standing partnership began in 2004 when Felicity Hedger, former senior partner at Humphries Kirk, viewed a presentation by the charity at a local networking event. She was moved by a story she heard about a local new born baby who was exposed to illegal drugs and felt compelled to learn more about Life Education Wessex.
Felicity went on to become a trustee of the charity and continues to support its work. She said: “Children today are under increasing pressures and temptations to damage their health and futures through poor diets, unhealthy lifestyles, drugs, smoking and alcohol, which is why education in their developing years is so important. We hope that through our support we can raise even more awareness for this important cause.”
Lorraine Hewitt fundraising manager for Life Education Wessex, said: “We are delighted that Humphries Kirk selected us for the tenth year. We really value their support which has made such a positive difference to local children over the years. We are very excited to be working with Humphries Kirk on The Big Quiz night and with other fundraising activities in the coming year.”
