North West Solicitors Use St Patrick’s Day Event to Raise Funds for Cash for Kids

law firm Farleys Solicitors

More than £3,700 has been raised for disabled and disadvantaged children across Lancashire, following support from law firm Farleys Solicitors.

140 people attended the firm’s annual St Patrick’s Day event at Bowland Brewery in Clitheroe, enjoying a day of live music, food, a charity auction and a pint or two of Guinness!

Prizes on the day were generously donated by local businesses and clients of the firm, including football tickets, tickets for the races, music tickets, theatre tickets, signed memorabilia and bottles of champagne.

In total, the event raised £3,710, with the funds being used by Cash for Kids to support the charity’s ongoing projects and range of services across Lancashire.

Ian Liddle, Partner at Farleys Solicitors said

“This is our twelfth year of organising a St Patrick’s Day event and the response has been phenomenal once again. From the excellent prizes that were donated to our raffle and auction to the very generous donations and auction bids, we are immensely proud to have raised more than £3,700 for such a worthy cause.

“We know that this money will go a long way to helping some of the county’s most disadvantaged children through the fantastic work that Cash for Kids do.”

Nikki Thompson, Charity Manager at Cash for Kids said:

“We would like to thank everyone involved, for hosting another great fundraising event in aid of Cash for Kids. We have been supported by Farleys for a number of years and really value the relationship we have developed. This is an amazing amount which will help many, many children across Lancashire.”
