Legal eagles go wild

A team of Gloucestershire legal eagles is set to boost the funds of a county wildlife charity by forming a new partnership with it.

The Phoenix Legal Group will work with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust over the next 12 months. From taking part in wildlife volunteering days to planning its own events, the company aims to raise thousands of pounds to support local wildlife and conservation.

The firm was formed in October when well-known solicitors practices Goldinghams LLP, Lapage Norris Sons and Saleby LLP, Read & Co Solicitors and Scott Keen LLP merged. It now offers legal expertise through its 35 Partners and employees based in offices in Stroud, Dursley and Stonehouse.

Its partnership with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is part of its commitment to working closely with local communities and ensuring it plays a part in helping vital wildlife and conservation work throughout the county.

We are all great supporters of the Wildlife Trusts important work in helping to make Gloucestershire such a fantastic place to live and work and the more we looked at its work, the more we realised that we shared so many of its aims and values, said Amanda Langley, Managing Partner at Phoenix Legal Group.

Three of its nature reserves are very near to our offices and, as all the Partners were already Trust members, when it came to choosing a charity to work with during the year, it was the obvious choice.

We have set ourselves an ambitious target to raise 20,000 over the next 12 months and are now working with the team at the Trust to agree on a years plan of activities. Somewhere in it will be a pledge by me to run next years Stroud Half Marathon to raise funds!

Were really looking forward to working with the Trust, to get a closer look at what it does and to offering our clients the opportunity to hear more about its role.

The Trust, which is based at Robinswood Hill Country Park in Gloucester, works to protect and conserve natural habitats for the benefit of Gloucestershire's wildlife and people. It manages more than 60 nature reserves in the county as well as running a successful schools programme involving more than 2,000 children. With a membership of over 23,000, it runs more than 100 events each year to help people get closer to local wildlife.

We are delighted to work so closely with Phoenix Legal Group, not only during our own calendar of activities but by working with team members there to come up with some other great fundraising challenges, said a representative from the Trust.

We rely on membership, donations, corporate support and charitable trust grants so its really important that local people and businesses support us. Having Phoenix Legal Group on board with us really is a terrific boost.

The formal launch of the partnership between Phoenix Legal Group and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust will take place next month.
