December Charity | Penn Group for Islington Veterans
Shak Inayat our Principal Solicitor was to run the Silverstone Circuit Half Marathon on 15 November 2020 to raise funds for Islington Veterans. Unfortunately, this will not be happening considering the current pandemic. This was a sponsored run.
Penn Group of Companies pledges to make up any shortfall (if any) of sponsorship monies up to £1,250. Any sponsorship in excess of £1,250 will, of course, benefit the association entirely, 100%.
This is in aid of The Islington Veterans Association

June 2020 | July 2020 Virtual Run
Shak Inayat, our Principal Solicitor was to run the St Albans Half Marathon on 14 June 2020. With COVID-19, this was unfortunately cancelled. Trying times, where help is even more welcome, we decided to organise a Virtual Run for Veterans in Action Charity, for the whole team Penn to run. One thing led to another, and instead of just Team Penn only, we had over 30 people signed up for 12th July for Team Penn run for VIA Charity! #pennrunVIA
This is in aid of Veterans In Action

August 2020 | Cancelled

This will be a sponsored run and Penn Chambers Solicitors pledges to raise as much money as possible for our named charity.
Charity at Penn Group
We all need some help in our lifetimes. Some more than others. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. We understand that.
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 like to see that we get a lot of "bang for our buck". We want to see that the money that we pledge helps directly to a specific cause wherever possible.
The money that we pledge 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.
Our plan is to undertake at least 4 events per year around March June September and December, and in each of those events, to aim to raise £1,250. Anything more than that is great. Anything less and Penn Group will make up the shortfall.
That is our Pledge.
Please help where you can and how you can.
