Mental health charity given boost with Shoosmiths fundraising
A leading Scottish mental health charity has benefited from funds raised on its behalf by staff in the Edinburgh office of Shoosmiths.
The latest fun initiatives to support the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH) saw over thirty Shoosmiths’ staff enjoying a social quiz night held in the city’s Voodoo Rooms. Hosted by litigation partner turned temporary quizmaster Stuart Clubb, the recent quiz and raffle held during the evening raised over £500 for SAMH.
And last Sunday, Anisa Doubell, Daniel Clark, Jakub Smektala and Jemima Santos in Shoosmiths debt recoveries team, switched from brain to brawn power when they pounded the capital’s streets to fundraise for SAMH in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival Team Relay.
Janette Speed, real estate partner and head of Shoosmiths in Scotland, said: “Every year, staff in our Edinburgh office commit to supporting a series of fundraising initiatives to benefit a charity in Scotland. Under the guidance of our volunteer internal charity ambassadors, Liana Di Ciacca and Gillian Wood, from quiz nights to bake sales and sports events, we are aiming to raise as much money as possible for the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH).
“SAMH currently operates over 60 services in communities across Scotland, including the provision of much needed mental health social care support. To date, Shoosmiths in Scotland has raised over £18,000 for the charity and I am confident our continued commitment will further boost the coffers of SAMH in the months ahead in support of its vital work.”
