Members of staff at Donnelly & Elliott and Verisona Law have collected over 200 chocolate eggs for distribution amongst those less fortunate over the Easter holidays.
Donnelly & Elliott receptionist, Louise Warner, co-ordinated the charity drive amongst clients, associates and staff to gather an impressive collection of chocolate eggs for Hampshire County Council to pass on to children this Easter.
Louise, who has worked with Donnelly & Elliott for 19 years, managed the project with colleague Sharon Hall, and made the donation through Kirstyn Knowles, a Team Manager for the council’s Children Services department.
‘We started collecting in March and are so grateful for the generosity and kindness of all those who donated,’ says Louise. ‘This is the second year we have asked for Easter Eggs in addition to our Christmas appeal and regular collections for local food banks throughout the year. We have become a well-known point in the community for people to make donations.’
‘We are very grateful to Donnelly & Elliott and Verisona Law for collecting and donating so many Easter Eggs for children across Gosport, Fareham and Havant, whose families are struggling to afford them, who have suffered harm or neglect, or have been exposed to violence at home,’ says Kirstyn.
‘The donations go directly to the parents to give to their children as if they had bought them themselves, but we know that Donnelly & Elliott and Verisona Law have given generously to help and support these families and we thank all the firm’s clients and staff for this very kind act. It truly makes a difference.’
