Lane Clark & Peacock LLP Sleep Out For Charity
14 December 2020
Congratulations are in order for our member Lane Clark & Peacock LLP! They raised funds to support two charities – the local West London Mission (WLM) and Trinity Winchester (local to their second office). Both these fantastic charities do incredible work supporting those without a home to make positive changes in their lives. Both WLM and Trinity Winchester independently hold an annual “sleep out”, which were unfortunately cancelled this year due to coronavirus. These sleep outs are a huge event in both WLM’s and Trinity’s calendars and raise vital funds for the charities to continue their work. With many of their fundraising events cancelled this year, LCP wanted to support the charities in these challenging times – by organising their own sleep out which seemed a fitting way to not only raise money, but also raise awareness. The sleep out took place in back gardens, tents and sheds and had eight participants including four LCP partners.
The event raised £6,125 plus gift aid which has been matched by the LCP Foundation, so each charity receives just over £6,800 each.
If this has inspired you to support the local community, we’ve rounded up plenty of ways you can get involved virtually with our Local Giving programmes. There’s also still time to enter our Charity Raffle and raise funds for North Paddington Food Bank.
