Kent, UK (PRUnderground) January 17th, 2014

Whitehead Monckton, one of Kent’s largest firms of lawyers and investment managers based in Maidstone, Kent, has named Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance as its ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2014.

Staff at Whitehead Monckton were asked to vote for the charity they would like to fundraise for during 2014, with the majority of votes being cast for Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.

Whitehead Monckton raised just over £10,000 in 2013 for its ‘Charity of the Year’, chYps children’s hospice by holding various drinks receptions, dress down days, fitness challenges and a charity quiz.  An impressive 14 members of staff ran the British 10k London Run in July and we also put two tables together at the chYps annual dinner and dance at Salomons in Tunbridge Wells.

We aim to beat our target of £10,000 this year for Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance by repeating the popular charity quiz in October, participating in numerous sporting challenges and potentially taking part in the Dragon Boat race.  Staff will also get involved by visiting the helicopter base and volunteering at various events throughout the year.

Daniel Bennett, Partner and Head of CSR at Whitehead Monckton, added: “We are delighted to be supporting Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance during 2014.  Whitehead Monckton’s CSR team is committed to raising vital funds and we are looking forward to involving our staff, clients and friends in our efforts.”
