Peters & Peters are proud to support Shelter
After 2 great years supporting Contact the Elderly, Peters & Peters have voted for Shelter as our charity partner for 2018/19.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.
We hold regular events within the firm including charity breakfasts, dress down days, and cake bakes. We also host our popular annual pub quiz and an annual sponsored event.
We also support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal by having a rota of people sell poppies and collect donations at Chancery Lane station.
Peters & Peters is delighted to share with you that during the financial year 2016/17 we raised a total of £17,706 for Contact the Elderly. We set a fundraising target of £16,000, so we are thrilled to have exceeded this.
Peters & Peters took part in the London Legal Walk 2018
The London Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk around some of London’s legal landmarks. With over 5,000 walkers, it is (probably!) the largest annual gathering of lawyers in the world.
Walking in teams as their court, law firm or chambers, law college or in-house legal department, walkers raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for agencies who provide free legal advice to those in desperate need who cannot afford to pay.
Peters & Peters took part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge 2017
The route was a gruelling 24 miles over three peaks (Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Pennine mountain range) and included an impressive 5,200 ft ascent. It took over 12 hours to complete. The P&P team members were William Green, Nicky Platten, Lara Newlands, George Pizzey and Katherine Evans.
