Burges Salmon has hosted an event celebrating the charities that the firm has supported in its fundraising activities on the theme of ‘No Child Goes Hungry’.

On Tuesday 21 June, members of Burges Salmon hosted an event giving individuals the opportunity to meet and engage with representatives from Fareshare South West, Square Food Foundation, St Werburghs Community Centre, Borderlands, Young Bristol and Baggator Nexus to celebrate the successes and positive impact the donations from the firm have made.

The firm’s Charity Committee hosted a stall to encourage feedback on recent events, promote upcoming events and volunteering opportunities to get involved with.

Other charities that the firm has supported on this theme to date, include Edinburgh Food Project, Hopscotch, Bristol Local Food Fund, and 91 Ways, to name but a few.

Burges Salmon partner Sian Edmunds, who heads the firm’s Charity Committee, says: “It is of the utmost importance to Burges Salmon that we give back to the community, and one of the ways we do this is by supporting charities that are helping to enable access to good-quality, safe and nutritious food for all. We’re pleased to be donating our fundraising to such an important theme and we hope we can continue to make a difference to the incredible work these charities do going forward.”

Giving back to the community is integral to Burges Salmon’s firm-wide strategy; it is a crucial part of the firm’s culture and its people are encouraged to contribute through volunteering, charitable fundraising, offering pro bono legal advice, as well as taking up board-level trustee and school governor opportunities.
