Award winning St Albans family law specialists, Rayden Solicitors, present the firm’s Charity of the Year, Herts Young Homeless (hyh) with a cheque for over £4000.
Fundraising events over the past 12 months including: a firm bake-off; quiz night; child anxiety seminar; and jewelry sale helped contribute to the final sum which was presented to hyh Head of Fundraising Kathryn Salmon.
The whole Raydens team nominate and then vote for a charity of the year, every year. Hyh was chosen as they are a local charity making a significant positive impact on the lives of young people in Hertfordshire.
Hyh works with other agencies throughout Hertfordshire towards improving local provision and preventing youth homelessness. Most of their work is with young people who have had difficulty in securing and maintaining safe, secure accommodation.
Kathryn Salmon from hyh said “We are hugely grateful for all the support that Rayden Solicitors have given us, the work they have done has really helped us to increase our profile in the St Albans area and the money raised will go towards essential funds for young people in Hertfordshire”.
Her comments were echoed by Rayden Solicitors Senior Partner, Katherine Rayden, who said “Herts Young Homeless provides invaluable support and advice to young individuals across our county who are in a position of vulnerability. I am delighted that our staff were able to raise a sizeable sum for such a worthy cause”.
