Buckles Solicitors LLP has a long and established relationship with many businesses and people. We believe we have a social responsibility to help the community in which we work and live.
Partner Nigel Moore helped found the local Pro-Help Group (part of Business in the Community). The aim of the group is to support voluntary organisations with free professional advice and guidance. The group is made up of professional firms from across the Peterborough area that are on hand to provide professional services to local community projects in the region free of charge.
The firm has set up a charity committee to administer its charitable giving through its Charities Aid Foundation account. The firm supports a broad range of charities, getting involved in national fundraising days but also supporting smaller local charities with regular donations. A number of staff sit on the local fundraising committees for:
- The British Heart Foundation
Clubs and Societies
It is important for local businesses to be able to exchange ideas and interact in order to embrace a solid infrastructure within the community. Buckles is involved with different organisations and groups throughout the area and attend many local events including:
- Various Rotary clubs
- Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce
- The Business Club
- Opportunity Peterborough
One area Buckles is very proud of is the interaction staff members have not only with each other but also within the wider community. Buckles holds many internal fundraising events throughout the year supporting the likes of Sue Ryder, Macmillan Cancer Support, Children in Need and Comic Relief. We also raise money annually to help a child from Chernobyl come to Peterborough.
