ABD helps Age UK Wiltshire “Spread The Warmth Campaign 2014”

Age UK Wiltshire was most grateful to receive a cheque from Awdry Bailey & Douglas Solicitors today.....

ABD partner and Head of Family Law Dept Alex David handed over a cheque to Mike Weston who is Chair of Trustees at Age UK Wiltshire for the sum of £643.75.  The money was raised by ABD through a sponsorship team building event which took place earlier on in the year.

Mike Weston said; “We at Age UK Wiltshire are most grateful to ABD for supporting our charity.  The money raised will go towards our “Spread The Warmth Campaign” which is one of the most important campaigns we run each year during the winter months. The money raised will assist this campaign greatly. During winter 1 older person dies every 7 minutes from the cold weather”.

Alexander David, Partner at ABD and Head of the Family Law Department said;

“Everyone at ABD are proud to be associated with Age UK Wiltshire which is an invaluable charity, assisting hundreds of elderly people at their time of need.  We are pleased that the funds raised will assist with the Spread the Warmth Campaign which assists elderly people to stay fit and well and warm during the winter months”.
