Earlier this month, Lovetts Solicitors took part in a special archery event aimed at raising the profile of – and fundraising for – local mental health charity, Oakleaf. The Guildford-based organisation provides vocational training for people with mental health needs, delivering work experience in upholstery, horticulture and IT as well as social inclusion activities such as literacy and numeracy sessions, guitar lessons, and meal nights.
Hosted at Guildford Archery Club and administered by FdK Design, the midweek archery evening was extremely well attended, raising more than £1,000 for the Oakleaf Enterprise charity. Professionals were on-hand to teach the basic skills required to hit the targets, and a huge amount of encouragement was provided along the way.
In total, twelve Lovetts staff members attended the event, creating three teams of four archers, between which the proceedings became extremely competitive!
As a law firm operating in a sector in which we witness first-hand the psychological anguish that debt can cause to both creditor and debtor alike, Lovetts understands the severity of the growing mental health challenge currently being faced within the UK and around the world. Our new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme places a high emphasis on investing in projects in this area, and we look forward to supporting Oakleaf again in the future.
Beyond the great work that was done by all who hosted and attended the event, the archery evening provided a highly entertaining opportunity for the firm to let its hair down collectively as a team, and you can see a range of photos from the day here.
