Blandy & Blandy Invites Local Charities to Apply for Support

Blandy & Blandy LLP is seeking two new local charities from across Berkshire and South Oxfordshire to ‘adopt’ from 2020.

The firm has supported Age UK Berkshire and the League of Friends of the Royal Berkshire Hospital since July 2018, having previously worked with charities including Daisy’s Dream, Reading Samaritans, Younger People with Dementia, Camp Mohawk, Thames Valley Air Ambulance and Berkshire Vision.

In recent years, Blandy & Blandy has donated over £100,000 to local charities, while continuing to support causes including the Reading Santa Run, Reading Legal Walk, Reading Pancake Race, Henley in Bloom, Young Enterprise and other school events.

Over 30 of the firm’s staff also spent a day earlier this year volunteering at local foodbank, Readifood, helping to sort, pack and deliver parcels, having donated items too back in January.

Fundraising initiatives have included a popular annual quiz night, supported by 30 leading Thames Valley firms, sponsored walks, ‘bikeathons’ and ‘rowathons’, dress down days, bake sales, raffles and auctions and lunchtime events which each department takes it in turn to organise.

Over the past 18 years, the firm has also helped to raise nearly £1.5 million for Cancer Research UK, for which it received a gold award from the charity in 2019.

Chairman, Brenda Long, said: “As one of the longest established businesses in the region, we fully appreciate and respect our role within the communities of Reading and Henley-on-Thames. As such, we believe that it is important to give something back by supporting local charities and causes in these areas.

We also specialise in advising national and local charities on a wide range of commercial issues, so we understand first-hand how charities operate and the important role they play.”

Fiona Price, Chief Executive of Age UK Berkshire, added: "We have had the pleasure of working with Blandy and Blandy. They have been very supportive of the charity and its work. The charity partnership and the money raised has made a real difference, not just to Age UK Berkshire's work but to many older people throughout the Berkshire area."

If your charity would like to be considered for Blandy & Blandy’s support, please contact david.lamont@blandy.co.uk to request an application form. The application deadline is 1 March 2020.
