Last year we did a ‘12 days of Christmas’ live auction during the day. We had everything from a trip for two and dinner down the Thames (seven swans a-swimming) to an ice cream maker (eight maids a-milking). We raised over £6000 for our chosen charities.
In 2019, three Royds Withy King lawyers took on the challenge of climbing to the summit of Kilimanjaro, raising funds for the Bath homelessness charity Julian House. The five-day challenge saw the group ascending the equivalent of 4.4 times the height of Ben Nevis and trekking across some of the most spectacular and varied landscapes on Earth. Jessica Gray, Ali Cloak and Fran Tremeer joined the larger Julian House trek team and were successful in contributing towards a team total of £37,117 for the charity.
We are committed to working sustainably and aim to embed a culture of environmental awareness and responsibility within the firm. This will support our delivery of responsible consumerism and the reduction of our overall carbon footprint as a business.
Since 2013, we have reduced our carbon footprint from 1.5 to 1.37 tonnes of CO2 per employee.
It’s not just about providing takeaway cups for everybody – it’s about making tangible steps to commit to being a more sustainable firm. For example, last year we committed to our energy supplier being 100% renewable.
