A LEADING Luton law firm has chosen palliative care unit Keech Hospice Care as its charity of the year.
Each year solicitors Pictons, based in Dunstable Road, chooses a main local charity which will benefit from all the firm’s fund raising activities throughout the year.
This year the 100 staff from the company’s four offices across Beds, Herts and Bucks, have unanimously backed the choice of Keech, which is celebrating its 21st birthday this.
Pictons have already got the ball rolling in terms of its fundraising efforts after a number of local schools battled it out in the Penalty Kings School Challenge which was launched back in May at William Austin Junior School.
The Austin Road school raised £700 for Keech.
Sukh Saini, managing partner of Pictons, said: ”We actively support lots of local initiatives in all of our offices across the three counties. In Luton our support includes Keech Hospice, the NICU appeal for the Luton and Dunstable Hospital’s neonatal unit, the Karen Trust cancer charity, Luton Town Football Club and the Community Awards.
“Our staff are very generous with their time and money, and it’s great when everyone pulls together for such an important charity. We are encouraging people to come up with ideas for fund raising for Keech Hospice and we expect lots of exciting and creative fund raising activities over the coming year.”
