Howes Percival’s Norwich office raises over £9,000 for its charity of the year 2022
Howes Percival’s Norwich office has raised over £9,000 for its Charity of the Year 2022, Nelson’s Journey.
Nelson’s Journey supports children and young people in Norfolk who have experienced the death of a significant person and provides a range of resources and services for those who may need their support. They have helped thousands of bereaved children and young people across the region.
The money was raised through a series of fundraising activities including bake sales, sweepstakes, and raffles and the final amount raised by staff was matched by the firm.
During the year, the office hosted a range of networking events including a live screening of the Ladies’ Wimbledon semi-finals, a Summer Classic Cycling event and a “Footie and Food” World Cup event. Money was also raised through various competitions and participation in the Tour de Broads whose charity partner this year was Nelson’s Journey, while a group took part in a sponsored 26-mile walk along the Marriott’s Way. The firm rounded off the year-long fundraising effort with the annual festive quiz and Christmas jumper competition.
Gary Stevens, Funding and Marketing Manager, of Nelson’s Journey commented, “The support that Howes Percival have given us in 2022 has been fantastic. From the team completing a 26-mile fundraising walk to helping us put on our annual Easter Egg Hunt by collecting chocolate eggs on our behalf. Everyone has gone over and above in supporting our work with bereaved children and young people in Norfolk.”
Howes Percival partner, Stuart Maggs commented, “We’ve had a fantastic year supporting Nelson’s Journey and we’re extremely pleased to have raised such a significant amount. Our team has really enjoyed getting involved in a number of fundraising activities and we are proud to have helped raise awareness for the incredible work that Nelson’s Journey do.
“I am delighted to announce that in 2023 our team has decided to support Norfolk and Waveney Mind. The charity plays a crucial role in ensuring that no one has to face poor mental health alone and helps people with their mental health and wellbeing through their wide range of services and support programmes.”
