Law firm donates care packages to the elderly to help during Covid-19 crisis
Merseyside-based law firm Brown Turner Ross has donated £2,500 to a local charity that will use the funds to provide care packages of household and food supplies and prepaid heating and electricity cards for the elderly, particularly for those living alone, which is much needed during this time of national crisis.
An Hour For Others is a Liverpool-based charity that works with businesses, schools and groups to support vulnerable members of the community. The charity builds communities from grassroots up, by calling on their network of volunteers and donors to offer support to the elderly, vulnerable children, struggling parents and community groups.
An Hour For Others reported that the elderly have been hit hard during the Coronavirus pandemic, as they have been fearful of actually going out to the shops to get supplies, but they also do not have the kind of money behind them to actually ‘stock up’.
Brown Turner Ross, who have offices in Liverpool and Southport, made the donation from the firm’s trust fund through their connection with Bruntwood.
Speaking about the donation, Matthew Skeels, director and probate specialist at Brown Turner Ross, said:
“Supporting the most vulnerable in society is so important, even more so in times of national crisis when isolation and fear is high. It is an honour to work alongside Bruntwood to make this donation to An Hour For Others. Knowing that we are funding care packages for the elderly is even more rewarding as it is such a necessity during these times.”
