Coffin Mew Raises £12,000 For Local Charity

Posted on: October 24th, 2016

After 18-months of fundraising efforts, leading regional law firm Coffin Mew has raised £12,000 for local charity Naomi House and Jacksplace.

Naomi House and Jacksplace are hospices for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. The charity, based in Hampshire, provides care to people living in communities across the seven counties of central southern England.

With less than 10% of income coming from the Government and other statutory bodies, it relies on the generosity of the local community to continue its work.

Inspired by this, Coffin Mew has spent the last year and a half hosting a number of charitable activities to benefit Naomi House and Jacksplace, culminating in a quiz night for local businesses that raised more than £2,000 alone.

The firm also ran a netball tournament, office tuck shop, hosted a stall at a local village fair, Solent Rocks concert – and even a Partner’s Breakfast, where Coffin Mew’s partners cooked for its employees – all to raise much needed funds for the hospices.

Charlotte Otter, Trusts and Major Gifts Fundraiser at Naomi House commented:

“Working with Coffin Mew is a standout example of how a charity partnership can and should look. The team at Coffin Mew take the time to get under the skin of Naomi House and Jacksplace, to understand everything about our charity, and to provide a tailored package of support that makes a huge difference to hundreds of children, young people and families from across the South.

Our successful partnership with Coffin Mew has already raised more than £12,000 and allowed us to benefit from expert legal advice and fantastic networking opportunities. We remain incredibly grateful to the whole Coffin Mew team for all they do in support of local life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families.”

 

Annabelle Vaughan, Partner at Coffin Mew, has spearheaded the firm’s fundraising efforts. She added:

“We were introduced to Naomi House and Jacksplace as a place where some of our clients receive essential respite. When we toured the hospice we were struck by the ability of the team to provide high quality care in a fun and homely environment.

“We have seen Naomi House transform itself over the last 18 months in to the outstanding facility it is today. I am aware that the Charity has exciting plans ahead and I am delighted that we have managed to raise such a fantastic amount that can be put towards a great future for Naomi House and Jacksplace.”
