Local solicitor’s raise £3,000 for Willow

October 14, 2014

Thanks to Hertfordshire-based solicitors Debenhams Ottaway who last week held a charity week raising £3,000 for Willow.

The week began with a team of 13 staff taking part in the Willow 10K run at Hatfield House on Sunday 5 October. The flagship event of the week was a charity quiz night at Veer Dhara restaurant supported by many local businesses and representatives, including a Willow team. Other activities that took place during the charity week included a cake sale, FIFA tournament, charity raffle and ‘Wear a Hat to Work’.

Hannah Gray, Willow Community and Volunteer Fundraising Manager said “The charity week has been an amazing success and we have been overwhelmed by the fundraising efforts of Debenhams Ottaway staff which will mean we can create even more Special Days for seriously ill young adults.”

Bernadette Hillman, partner at Debenhams Ottaway commented “Debenhams Ottaway is committed to supporting local charities and initiatives. Thank you to all staff and friends of the firm for their support and generosity during charity week.”
