Law firm Lodders is to focus its charity push on local Warwickshire projects.
Via Heart of England Community Foundation, the Stratford-upon-Avon solicitors are to throw their fund-raising effort behind The Buzz Arts and Community Centre and Support Sport Ltd.
Based in the town’s Henley Street, and catering for the needs of a range of individuals and groups, Buzz provides a venue for leisure activities, support bodies, training, charity events and conferences.
The complex is for the public generally but in particular those who are young, old, infirm or disabled, in financial hardship or living in trying social or economic circumstances.
Lodders will fund a part time chef to support the centre’s Go Enjoy Project which aims to help those of limited mobility get into Stratford, meet others, get a bite to eat and enjoy some activities in an affordable setting.
Support Sport Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation enabling children and young people to benefit through sport and leadership activities.
The aim is to develop tomorrow’s community leaders, boosting ambitions, goals and confidence.
Lodders will back workshops for children aged 9, 10 and 11 at five different primary schools across Warwickshire, targeting those in areas of either high deprivation or rural isolation.
Senior partner David Lodder, head of the firm’s charity committee, said: “Every year we try to do our bit for charity.
“These are two great local causes, where hopefully we can help to make a difference.”
