In recent years, we have been delighted to support charitable causes and events including:
Charity Golf Day
Woodfines has hosted a number of Golf Days, with the aim of raising money for good causes close to us.
In 2018, we raised £2,000 for Bowel Cancer UK, in support of our colleague, Bethany.
In 2017, the event raised £1,600 for the MND Association, in support of our colleague, James.
In 2016, the event supported the Bedford Daycare Hospice.
In 2015, the event raised £2,300 for Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice in Moggerhanger, in memory of our colleague, Ashley.
MK Dons Sport & Education Trust
Woodfines is a Friend of the MK Dons’ Sport & Education Trust which raises vital funds that enable the Trust to continue its task of delivering its key community and educational streams across the local region.
In 2018, we provided the MK Academy school in Milton Keynes with 10 tickets to a match to see the MK Dons in action.
Woodfines is a proud sponsor of Home-Start, one of the UK’s leading family support charities. All round the country local schemes recruit and train volunteers to support local families with young children at home.
The charity helps families with diverse issues such as isolation, postnatal illness, multiple births, disability, bereavement or those who are just finding parenting a struggle.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life
In June 2014, members of Woodfines’ Bedford office took part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life event in Bedford, raising over £1,600 to help fight cancer.
The team decided to ‘up the stakes’ in 2016, and instead tackled Cancer Research UK’s ‘Pretty Muddy’ 5k obstacle course. Over £2,200 was raised for the charity.
Star Club Juniors
Woodfines are active sponsors of the Star Club’s Junior Rowing programme.
Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice
We continue to support Sue Ryder in Bedfordshire, and participated in the 2014 Bedford River Festival and Sue Ryder St John’s Summer Fete where our ‘Sponge a Solicitor’ attraction proved very popular with over 900 sponges thrown!
In 2016, we again attended the Bedford River Festival in aid of the hospice, where our pitch featured acoustic music and children’s facepainting, as well as a giant ‘Connect 4’ challenge against our lawyers.
Woodfines are proud, principal sponsors of Bedford’s annual Bedfringe festival.
