Yorkshire’s Legal People once again have pledged their support for the KACCL Christmas Lunch, which last year helped to raise over £18k for local charities and causes. This year, Chadwick Lawrence are the sponsors of the event’s entertainment offering through Orange Box young people’s choir.
This year’s event is set to be equally as successful as last, with all proceeds raised going towards two incredibly worthwhile Yorkshire based charities – The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and Orange Box Young People’s Choir.
Chadwick Lawrence are members of the hardworking committee team who bring this fantastic event together.
The KACCL (Kirklees and Calderdale Charity Lunch) was founded in 2016 by The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and TopicUK, with the help of the local business community, to raise valuable funds for local charities in the Yorkshire area. Members from individual supporter businesses come together to organise and host an exciting charity lunch, where individuals are encouraged to give back to the local community.
Two of the beneficiaries of this year’s charity lunch are Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and Orange Box Choir, based in Halifax.
Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports over 200 local children with life-shortening conditions and their families, helping in a number of different ways to make their lives just a little bit easier.
Orange Box Choir is one of a number of Square Chapel projects and part of the Square Chapel’s wider community engagement programme. The choir members include young people with varying abilities, some of whom have additional needs. It aims to help the young people to increase their confidence and creates a positive experience for them in an environment in which they feel safe. The choir’s first performance, at KACCL 2017, received a wonderful reception and has led to many more engagements for the choir over the last 12 months.
This year’s event takes place on the 6th December at Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top, with a champagne reception, three course lunch and entertainment from the Orange Box Choir.
“We’re incredibly proud to show our support for this incredibly important event once again this year,” commented Joanne Jones, Associate in the Family Law Department at Chadwick Lawrence. “As a firm, we all strongly believe in giving back to the local community, and supporting causes that help make a difference to the people of Yorkshire.
“Both Forget Me Not and Orange Box Young People’s Choir provide vital services across Kirklees and Calderdale, and both rely on external funding to continue to provide this support. We are incredibly honoured to be able to help these organisations to continue to exist in our region.”
