Charitable initiatives

Willans has been part of the Gloucestershire community for over 70 years. We recognise that we have a stake in the success and welfare of our community and are very proud of the contribution that we have made, and continue to make.

The firm is committed to a sustainable and socially responsible future and is working towards enhancing its energy efficient and ethical practices and processes. For many years, our ‘green’ initiative has helped to communicate the sustainability message internally and to encourage environmentally-friendly practices.

Many of our lawyers undertake pro-bono work acting as trustees or honorary secretaries to many local charities and support county initatives including giving career talks at the local university and schools. Willans also supports countless sporting and community events and initiatives for organisations such as Cheltenham Festivals, Charlton Kings Cricket Club, Old Pats, Cheltenham Rugby, Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce, to name a few.

We also vote for a local charity every year and we work hard to fundraise for them through a programme of internal and external activity including events which are well attended by Gloucestershire businesses. We are proud to say that we have raised around £90,000 over the past six years which has been put toward all sorts of charitable projects throughout the county for fantastic charities such as LINC, Sue Ryder, Cobalt, Winston's Wish, National Star College and The Nelson Trust.  

Our charity of the year for 2018-2019 is Carers Gloucestershire, a local charity that has been supporting unpaid carers for more than 25 years. It offers services and support for carers including advice and guidance, positive caring courses, carer-to-carer support, counselling, support groups and day trips for carers.
