“If a project is only considered a success when the
clients say so, then the new IP boutique Powell
Gilbert can consider itself truly triumphant.”

Charities

 

Powell Gilbert is proud to support several charitable incentives for a variety of causes. Whether it’s dressing up, baking cakes or putting our running shoes on, we’re always keen to get involved and support some extraordinary charities. In recent years these have included:

 

  • Jeans for Genes Day: Genetic Disorders UK provides support, resources and education for children suffering from genetic disorders and their families.
  • Wear It Pink: Breast Cancer Campaign funds innovative research for the prevention, treatment and cure of the UK’s most common cancer.
  • Red Nose Day: Comic Relief has worked for over 25 years to tackle poverty and social injustice both in the UK and abroad.
  • London Legal Walk/Legal Bake Off: London Legal Support Trust aims to ensure that even the most vulnerable and disadvantaged have access to justice.
  • Square Mile Run: Crisis helps homeless people in the UK, providing support such as health services and help with employment.
  • Movember: Supporting men’s health awareness and research programmes by growing moustaches during November.

 

Many of our staff also undertake their own charitable fund raising activities that we are pleased to support. Recent activities have ranged from sponsored walks to ultra marathons.

 

In addition, every year Powell Gilbert makes significant donations to our two Christmas card charities. These are chosen by selected members of the firm and usually have special personal significance. Last year, we supported Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and WaterAid.

 

We also have a history of stepping up to raise donations for countries in need after major disasters. Last year we held an event to fundraise for the Disasters Emergency Committee after the terrible typhoon in the Philippines. In the past, we’ve donated to help victims of the Christchurch earthquakes and the Japanese tsunami.
