This month’s Company of the Month is Shoosmiths Leeds!

The Leeds Shoosmiths office have been supporting Candlelighters since early 2019. They have taken on many challenges since then including a Three Peaks walk in the pouring rain, Leeds 10k, bake sales, the Great North Run, office raffles and much more!

Their amazing efforts have been reflected in the incredible amount they have raised which is over £17,000! 

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, fundraising has been difficult, especially for businesses who are working from home and with reduced capacity. However, this has not stopped the determined CSR team at Shoosmiths! They have been continually coming up with innovative ideas to continue their fundraising.

Shoosmiths Pink It Up Zoom meeting!

Their most recent challenge is a VIRTUAL WALK ACROSS AMERICA!  Colleagues have been put in to teams and will be tracking their steps over the next couple of months as their steps add up to the equivalent of walking across the USA. Below are some of the walkers getting their steps in.

Thank you so much to all the team at Shoosmiths for your continued efforts, it is so appreciated!
