Charity of the Year for 2018
Bakers Solicitors are delighted to announce that their Charity of the Year for 2018 is Crossroads Derbyshire, formerly High Peak Women’s Aid. The Charity, based in Glossop, offer a range of confidential support and advisory services to women, children and young people who live in fear of domestic abuse as well as offering an outreach service to men. The services include a refuge for young women and children needing a safe place to stay, outreach services for women and men, community programmes for young people, counselling and specialist services for children.
Ginny Parkes, Head of Practice Management at Bakers Solicitors said ‘we were surprised by the number of votes our online poll attracted and all three nominated charities are a worthy cause. However the support for Crossroads was overwhelming and with 69% of the vote they were the clear winners.’ Bakers Solicitors will work closely with Crossroads over the year to fundraise, promote and raise awareness of the charity.
A runner’s up donation will also be made to both Glossopdale Guide Dogs and Willow Wood Hospice.
