After work on Thursday, we braved the dark, cold January evening to go to the first YPG event of the year, hosted by Morrisons Solicitors, at The Old Frizzle. Once in the warm glow of the fairy lights and with a drink firmly in hand, nearly 80 professionals were able to catch up after the Christmas break, network and meet new people.
We are delighted to announce that last year the team at WSM raised a staggering £7,678.12 for our 2015 charity of the year, the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. The Putney-based charity care for people living with severe neurological disability and brain injury, providing specialist care for up to 220 patients.
In fulfilment of the firm’s on going commitment to being a socially responsible employer, an annual ballot is held so that everyone has an opportunity to vote for the charity that they would like the firm to support for the forthcoming year. As ever, there were some great nominations and we are delighted to announce that for 2016 we will be working with the Willow Foundation.
Last Thursday, some of the girls decided to join in the Christmas festivities and get tickets for the popular Christmas Carols evening organised by the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. It was held in the packed out Holy Trinity Church just next door to the hospital, enabling some of the patients to join in the fun as well.
