Thursfields supporting five West Midlands and Worcestershire charities over Christmas

Thursfields Solicitors has announced pre-Christmas donations of £1,000 to five West Midlands charities.

They include New College Worcester, Variety in Birmingham, Sight Concern in Worcester, Get-A-Head in Solihull and the Black Country Foodbank.

Thursfields’ Chairman Nick O’Hara said: “We all live and work in our local communities and so we are keen to support local charities as much as we can.

“We have chosen these charities as they are all working hard to make a difference to those who are in need, especially after the year we have all had due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Support for local charities is even more important in 2020 and we hope these donations will help at a time of greatest need.”

New College Worcester focuses on educating young people who are blind or vision impaired, and Sight Concern in Worcester supports blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives.

Variety Midlands exists to improve the lives of disabled children and young people and children living in poverty.

Get A-Head, based in Solihull, is an independent charity supporting those with head and neck diseases and cancer.

The Black Country Foodbank, based in Brierley Hill, is designed to help vulnerable individuals and families in crisis through the provision of three days’ emergency food supplies while a longer term solution is developed. It now has 23 drop off points around the Black Country.

Nick said: “These five charities provide much needed support for the vulnerable in our communities and we are pleased to be able to help.”
