DMH Stallard has teamed up with Brighton & Hove Albion’s official charity after staff chose to focus their fundraising efforts to support its work; staff will now set about raising funds for the charity, which last year worked with more than 40,000 local people.
The money raised will be used to fund AITC’s work across Sussex, including its football sessions for people with a disability and the growing number of free football sessions it delivers to young people living in areas of deprivation.
With offices in Brighton, Gatwick, Guildford, Horsham and London, DMH Stallard is well-regarded for its socially-responsible approach to business and its eagerness to play an active part in the communities in which its offices are based; the decision to support AITC was seen by the firm as a natural extension of that ethos.
Richard Pollins, managing partner, said the firm was only too pleased to be supporting AITC and looking forward to starting their fundraising:
“DMH Stallard has always been active in its local communities. In addition each year we focus fundraising support on one or two charities which reflect our own values, hence our support for Albion in the Community, with its emphasis on personal development, health and wellbeing, education and inclusion.”
Richard Pollins and Vanessa Joll, a partner in the real estate team, recently visited AITC at its base at the American Express Community Stadium. There they met with Lynsay Josephy, the charity’s corporate fundraising executive, to discuss the partnership.
Mrs Josephy said: “If it wasn’t for the backing and generosity of firms like DMH Stallard, we would not be able to offer the variety of programmes we do and ultimately, we wouldn’t be able to support as many people in the local area.
“Our thanks go to everyone at DMH Stallard for deciding to support us in this way. I’ve been incredibly impressed by the firm’s willingness to make a positive impact on their local community and I’m really looking forward to working with them over the coming months.”
