A Wiltshire law firm has launched a hunt for a charity to support in 2021.

Each year, Goughs Solicitors works closely with carefully selected official charity partners helping to both raise awareness and funds for some extremely worthy causes.

But this year rather than researching charities internally, the law firm – which has offices in Chippenham, Calne and Devizes – is inviting good causes to nominate themselves as Goughs' charity of the year 2021-22.

"Goughs have a strong track record of building successful corporate partnerships with their respective Charities of the Year, having supported a wide variety of causes over the years," said head of charity, Emma Taylor.

"We are passionate about getting involved in a varied and creative mix of fundraising efforts, both organised by ourselves and by our partner charities. 

“There are so many deserving causes across Wiltshire so it’s always such a difficult decision for us to select one. This is why we have revamped the process so we can get to know the charities better and make a better informed decision.

"With our Charity of the Year initiative, we aim to apply our Goughs Values of Trust, Teamwork, Engagement, Excellence and Accountability by supporting charitable causes who are making a tangible difference within the Wiltshire communities we work.”

Charities that would like to be considered should complete the online or paper application that can be found on the Goughs website at www.goughs.co.uk/site/about_us/charity_of_the_year/apply-to-be-our-charity-of-the-year

Applications close on December 31.
