Wilsons Solicitors charity dining event in aid of HALE at the Waterside

By John Wilson.

At Wilsons we like to be part of the community, not locked away in some faceless office block like so much of the legal profession, mumbling away in legal jargon impenetrable to outsiders. We believe in plain English and plain speaking, and our offices are where our clients are – in the suburban shopping parades just like other shops. In fact you could think of them as law shops!

But our commitment to the community does not stop there. We like to support local good causes too. And as part of this, for some years now we have organised regular events to raise funds for them. Many of these events are dinners. The dinners started in Bradford a few years ago, supporting the annual charity appeal of the Lord Mayor of Bradford, but we have expanded them to support other charities across Leeds and Bradford where our offices are. Whenever one of Wilsons’ local offices organises a charity dinner, we always try to choose a local charity to support and a local venue for the dinner – usually a local hotel or restaurant. In that way we are supporting our local communities and our local hotels and restaurants at the same time!

Our charity dinners are very informal, even if they can sound quite posh sometimes. The dinners usually start not much later than 7pm-ish and last a couple of hours. They include a raffle and often some entertainment. Part of the ticket price goes to the cause being supported and the rest to the restaurant.

Our next one is in your area on Wednesday 1st May at the Waterside Restaurant and Bar in Shipley (formally The Cut) in aid of HALE charity (Health Action Local Engagement – Healthy Living Project). The Waterside is one of Shipley’s hidden treasures, nestled on the banks of the Leeds-Liverpool canal and a beautiful spot to spend an evening. Tickets are £15 for a lovely two-course meal and some light entertainment. There will be plenty of raffle prizes as well. It kicks off at 7pm. Please come down and show your support for this good cause whilst having a lovely evening’s entertainment. Tickets can be bought or reserved from the office, or you may contact our events organiser Evie on 07739 707 440, or by email to yvonne.gibson@lawoffice.co.uk.

Do you know a local charity or other good cause that needs some support and could get people to attend a dinner if we organised it for them? Or are you a venue near to one of our offices that might like to host an event? Get in touch with Evie and let’s see what we can do together!
