The selection of charities put forward across the firm ranges from animal welfare to arts and culture, education, environmental, wellbeing and healthcare, including many with personal and touching stories highlighting the importance of a particular charitable cause. Our aim has been to seek to channel funds and efforts specifically to one charity partner in each region in order best to focus our firm’s and our people’s resources to create the greatest impact.
Our people have played an important role, donating, fundraising and supporting individuals struggling with food insecurity in some of the countries in which we operate.
For example, people across our US offices have been working with The Feeding America network, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization working to connect people with food and end hunger.
Our teams based in Hong Kong continue to support Feeding Hong Kong which deals with food waste sent to landﬁlls, while more than one million people still live in poverty and are struggling to access enough food.
In the UK, we have been partnered with the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) since December 2019. During this time we have raised funds through a variety of activities from cake baking, sponsored runs and bike rides and even bingo.
A huge thank you to the amazing team of Withers for raising over £14,000 for the Mental Health Foundation. Your donations will help us to deliver vital research and develop solutions to improve prevention and treatment for the 1 in 6 people affected by mental health problems every week. We are committed to continuing to find effective ways of improving mental health, and raising awareness of the importance of good mental health. From everyone at MHF, thank you for your support.
