We’re celebrating a hat-trick this week!
Not only did we tot up a £21,284 donation for two local hospices at our third charity ball, but we also scooped two industry awards for a second year running; and all within one week!
Held at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel, the charity ball saw some 300 people come together for a night of fun to help raise money for Pendleside Hospice and East Lancashire Hospice.
As monies were collected in, the Alexander Grace team was busy preparing for our next big event of the week; the ESTAS; the industry’s conveyancing awards, voted for by the public.
Directors Donnamarie Sturrock and James Young were accompanied by 10 members of the team to attend the awards at the Grosvenor Hotel, London and for the second year running took away two awards; regional law firm of the year and best in county.
Donnamarie said: “It really has been an incredible few weeks. Preparing for the ball takes a lot of coordination but we are lucky to have an invaluable team who really get stuck to help and the final result is well worth the effort. We even managed to get Burnley footballer Jay Rodriguez on board this year, who proved quite a hit!
“The hospices rely heavily on donations to be able to offer the incredible service they do, and we have been able to increase our donation year on year thanks to amazing family, friends and business colleagues.
“As we won two awards at last year’s ESTAS we didn’t think we could do it again, but we did and, again, that is all thanks to our brilliant team and clients.
“We’re never ones to rest on our laurels, so we’ll continue working hard to deliver the service people have come to expect from Alexander Grace and we will be announcing the next charity ball date for 2020 soon!
