Birmingham-based QualitySolicitors Davisons has raised an incredible £4,500 in the short space of four months for local charity group HomeLess One. The group provides an essential meal service to Birmingham’s community by offering hot meals and drinks seven days a week.
The UK’s largest children’s charity, Barnardo’s, depends on legacy gifts for up to half of their voluntary income, which goes directly towards funding vital support services for vulnerable children and young people.
Contrary to the age-old saying, Sunday was no day for relaxing. QualitySolicitors Davisons Director Darryl Wilkes and Conveyancing Solicitor James Kennedy gritted through a gruelling Olympic relay course at the Birmingham Triathlon on 16 June, joined by professional triathlete Ian Dempsey – and they took out first place!
It’s a befitting win given the driving force behind their participation, which was to officially launch QualitySolicitors Davisons’ year-long fundraising campaign for HomeLess One, a charity that works seven days a week to bring hot meals and drinks to the homeless community in Birmingham.
Two of our directors, Gary Davison and Darryl Wilkes, have joined forces with semi-professional triathlete Ian Dempsey in order to raise vital funds for HomeLess One, a charity that works seven days a week to bring hot meals and drinks to the homeless community in Birmingham.
The trio will take on a leg each of the Birmingham Triathlon on Sunday, 16 June, committing to the monster Olympic and relay circuit that will involve a 1,500 metre swim, a 40 kilometre cycle and a 10 kilometre run.
