Charity at Penn Group
We all need some help in our lifetimes. Some more than others.
Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.
Our day job is to provide our clients with great service and holistic advice in all areas of professional services we are experts in. Everything we do for charity is for the soul, and more enjoyable, if we feel we have been able to make a difference in people's lives.
We are committed to giving something back to society in our own little way.
Penn Group pledge to pay at least £5,000 per year to charitable institutions, preferably those that are smaller and may not get as much exposure as the big organisations do.
We want to see that the money that we pledge helps directly to a specific cause wherever possible.
The money is raised by challenging activities and any shortfall is made up from our own funds. That is our commitment and we intend to honour it every year.
Please help us help others, where you can and how you can.
Penn Chambers Solicitors completed the Will Aid season 2022 and have raised £2050.00 in 2023. The total donations to date by Penn Chambers Solicitors over the period of two years is now £18,310.00 for all the nine Will Aid Charities, and we could not be more proud of this achievement.
Team Penn will be taking part in the Color Obstacle Rush this year to raise funds for the charity In Memory of Dorothy "Joyce" Aslett.

Suited & Booted is a charity based in the City of London. Public agencies refer vulnerable, unemployed and low-income men to them, and S&B help them get into employment by providing suitable interview clothing donated by companies and professionals.
Our Quarter 4 charity is the Islington Veterans Association (IVA).
In 2021 we exceeded our £5000.00 target by over £3500 with the help of all of you. And we aim for the same in 2022 - we continue to recognise the increasing need for help and support and we pledge to pay at least £5,000 to charitable institutions. In 2022 we continue to support veterans and we add other charitable institutions to the mix. Supporting 9 different charities by taking part in Will Aid 2022.

We raised £9,620 for Will Aid partner charities between September 2021 and March 2023 and that is an impressive result considering the size of our firm, also making us the highest donating new firm to Will Aid in 2021 and on a national level, the 8th highest donating firm. All of the funds raised will have helped the charities to continue the vital work they do and help and support where and when it is needed the most. Well done Emma Aslett and the team at Penn Chambers.
