We have long fostered and encouraged a direct involvement in local charitable and community groups. In some cases the links have very established roots.

Members of the firm at all levels play an active role in the running of a large number of local charitable and voluntary organisations.

On a wider scale several members of the firm have a direct involvement with charities providing schools and education in third world countries, particularly Africa and India. We are members of the Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire branches of the Pro-Help Group, one of many schemes created by the 'Business in the Community' organisation. The aim is to provide a broad range of professional services to locally based charities and the voluntary sector free of charge and the group's members include local firms of solicitors, accountants, surveyors and a host of other professionals.

We also participate in a local pro-bono initiative with the object of providing legal assistance and support to small local groups principally concerned with the interests of ethnic minorities and the disadvantaged.
