Higgs supports local good causes with generous donations

Kind-hearted employees at a leading Black Country law firm have donated more than £5,000 to charity – as well as toys and food for people in need.

Staff at Higgs LLP in Brierley Hill worked together to hand over a cheque for £3,000 to the Black Country Foodbank and more than £2,000 to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The money was raised by Higgs’ generous employees throughout 2021 and presented to the good causes at the end of the year.

The firm, which works across all areas of law including business services, family, dispute resolution, personal injury and property, provided 340.5kgs of food to the foodbank throughout the year and also donated gifts to Santa’s Black Country Toy Appeal.

Tim Jones, a Partner at Higgs LLP who leads on the firm's Community Matters activities, said: "We were thrilled to be able to make these donations to some fantastic good causes in our local area.

“The pandemic curtailed some of our regular fundraising activities but we still managed to make a brilliant contribution.

“Teenage Cancer Trust was our charity of the year and we held regular fundraisers to reach our £2,000 total.

“We’re also delighted to support Black Country Foodbank with both money and supplies. They are providing vital help to vulnerable people in our vicinity and it’s a privilege to assist that good work.

“It was a challenging year all round but the generosity of our people shone through.”

Black Country Foodbank said the 340kg of food donated by Higgs throughout the year – along with a further 28kg of non-food items – was enough to make 681 meals and 28 toiletry packs for people in crisis.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing young people who have received a diagnosis of cancer with specialised nursing care and support.

Over the past seven years Higgs has raised more than £140,000 for good causes.

Tim added: “As well as making financial donations, we also believe it is important to get involved with each of our charities, offering hands-on practical support and making the most of the expertise and enthusiasm we have to offer.”
