Conveyancing Foundation Leads Successful Fundraising Effort During National Conveyancing Coffee Morning

During National Conveyancing Week, from the 11th to the 15th of March, organised by Bold Legal Group and Todays Conveyancer, the Conveyancing Foundation were proud to support this incredible initiative.  By pledging to match all funds raised for charity by law firms through the Collaboration Coffee Mornings, the Foundation played a pivotal role in fostering community spirit within the conveyancing sector. Moreover, this initiative served as a platform to engage professionals in meaningful discussions about the indispensable role of conveyancers in the industry. 

The concept of the coffee morning was simple yet effective: inviting professionals from across the property industry into conveyancing firms’ offices for a relaxed catch-up over coffee. The aim was to facilitate conversations about the contributions of conveyancers, how we can better collaborate with all stakeholders within the home moving process and strengthen relationships within the industry. 

As part of the Conveyancing Foundation initiative, firms were provided with complimentary coffee morning packs containing engaging fundraising ideas and decorative items such as balloons and posters. Over 12 offices from various regions across the UK enthusiastically embraced the initiative and rallied support for their chosen charitable causes. 

Congratulations to all the supporters of this initiative for their efforts towards improving collaboration in our industry and for raising funds for some incredible causes: 

  • Thomas Flavell & Sons (Hinkley Branch) commendable effort of £60.00 in support of Rainbows Hospice, which cares for hundreds of families every year who have a baby, child, or young person with a serious or terminal illness that means their lives will be shorter than most. 
  • Thomas Flavell and Sons (Leamington Spa Branch) raised £90.00 for The Friendship Project, a Warwickshire-wide charity that matches children and young people (who are in need, for a variety of reasons) with volunteers, for friendship and fun.
  • Coodes offices raised £220.00 for Cornwall Hospice Care, a 24/7 healthcare charity that provides compassionate, specialised end-of-life care for patients within the Cornwall community.
  • Lamb Holmes raised £205 for the Air Ambulance Service, which flies across the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland flying people to safety when they need it most.  
  • AConveyancing raised £113.48 for Forward Trust, a charity that aids those who have experienced the effects of drug or alcohol issues. AConveyancing will also be supporting Forward Trust at their charity fundraising event ‘Crystal Maze’ this summer. 
  • Convey Law raised £426.05 for Crohn’s & Colitis UK, helping those living with the lifelong issues that come with having Crohn’s disease. The money they raise helps to fund research that will help. 

These contributions, alongside others from firms, collectively raised an impressive total of £1,466.51! 

Jess Smith, COO of the Conveyancing Foundation, expressed her gratitude, stating, “This remarkable achievement exemplifies the generosity and community spirit within the conveyancing sector. We are immensely proud to have facilitated such impactful contributions to a diverse range of charitable causes.”  

The Conveyancing Foundation also matched the funds raised, resulting in a total donation of £2,933.02 to charity! 

Charity fundraising and giving back to our local communities has immeasurable benefits and if nothing else, is wonderful for the soul! The Conveyancing Foundation’s Charity Lotto is available to all businesses who wish to raise thousands of pounds for their chosen charities each month and give their clients the opportunity to win £500 in the monthly lotto draw. Additionally, the Foundation is currently accepting applications for its ‘Charity Grant Scheme,’ offering grants of up to £2,000 for chosen charities involved in fundraising events and the Mental Health Charity Grant scheme which allows firms to access grant funding of up to £2,000 dedicated to covering the expenses of Mental Health First Aider Training.
