Leading Local Law Firm, Mowbray Woodwards, Raises £3,200 For Bath Charity Mentoring Plus



 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As members of the Bath Percent Club, which aims to encourage charitable giving amongst local businesses, Mowbray Woodwards were introduced to the charity at one of the club’s events. Mentoring Plus supports young people aged 7-21 struggling with education, family, poverty or isolation by matching them with trained volunteer mentors.

Staff at Mowbray Woodwards raised funds with a variety of activities including a bake-off style cake sale, dress-down days and raffling a day off work. Some of the team also ran the Bath Half Marathon, raising individual sponsorship which was generously matched by the firm’s Partners.

Mowbray Woodwards managing partner, Tracey Smith, is delighted with the result. “We have all been so inspired by the work of Mentoring Plus. Fundraising for such a fantastic cause has really brought our team together and we have all worked hard to raise money in different ways.”

Jamie Luck, Director of Mentoring Plus said “This is a really inspirational amount raised and we’re thrilled to learn that the staff from Mowbray Woodwards found supporting Mentoring Plus such a positive experience. This will make such a difference to us as it covers the cost of training and supporting two mentor/mentee pairs for an entire year.”

Mentoring Plus provides a planned programme of skills-building activities alongside a core mentoring service.  Mentees are helped into work or education, and supported to cope with difficulties and make positive choices. They gain skills, confidence and positive aspirations for the future. www.mentoringplus.net
