Express Solicitors Ltd. is one of the UK’s leading personal injury firms. The company is made up by 180 members of staff, which has increased significantly over the last 18-24 months. Express Solicitors are committed to client care and have a board of far sighted and hard-working Partners supported by a terrific staff base.
Based in Northenden and strong local links, Express Solicitors have chosen to support Forever Manchester in a number of ways.
Firstly they are a Manchester Million member, secondly Carole Jones, Partner of HR (non-lawyer) has been an Ambassador for 3 years. Express Solicitors have also taken responsibility for opportunities outside the roadmap of events, for example their Summer Party in 2016 raised over £1,000 in the raffle. Express Solicitors have sponsored both our Hallowe’en and Birthday Bash events and continue to partner with us in new ways, such as the Community Reporting initiative.
Express Solicitors staff have a history in surpassing their fundraising targets for events such as the abseil and more recently the Manchester 10km and joint winners of the 2016 Cool Runnings Award. This shows the depth of passion and enthusiasm their staff have for our charity after Nick Massey and Ged Murray visited Express HQ to do a presentation.
Express Solicitors had a named fund with us, supporting communities in Wythenshawe and Northenden. They now take part in the Forever Manchester panels and are very positive about the benefits to their staff and the wider community.
James Maxey, Managing Director for Express Solicitors Ltd said: “We are mindful as part of being a committed employer to choose nominated charities. I believe we have a real partnership between our two organisations committed to making a difference. This is not just about grant making but about embedding the charity in the hearts and minds of staff who we know are enormously generous and also giving those charities a gentle push in the right direction though time or money so they can gain momentum in becoming independent and successful in their own right. This is an aim that really struck us when selecting Forever Manchester”.
