Schofield Sweeney employees are involved with a variety of charitable and voluntary activities inside and outside of work.
In 2015/16 the firm raised over £10,000 for Sue Ryder hospices - Wheatfields and Manorlands. We held cake sales and quizzes, run marathons and walked miles, taken part in the Out of Office Challenge and our own Bear Ghrylls, Chris Schofield, spent three days on Endurance Island.
In 2017 the firm raised or donated over £30,000 to a selection of charities including our chosen charities of the year: Simon on the Streets and Centerpoint.
For 2018 the firm has chosen to focus their efforts on local Yorkshire based hospice charities. The charities that we will be concentrating on are: St Gemmas, Kirkwood and Marie Curie. We have already held internal fundraising activities and our colleagues are signing up to a number of different events hosted by these charities.
Outside of work a large number of the team are Governors, Trustees and have other voluntary commitments, see an overview here.
We are delighted to provide pro bono work for a number of organisations in the local area.
