Ottery Help Scheme Fundraising Event

13th June 2019

At Gilbert Stephens Solicitors we are committed to supporting local charities and good causes. On Tuesday 28th May, we were very happy to be able to support the incredible work of the Ottery Help Scheme at their Fundraising event held at the magnificent gardens of Cadhay House in Ottery St Mary between 10am – 2pm.

It was the perfect day for the half term family fun event, which attracted young families and locals alike, wishing to enjoy the fun while raising some money for the charity. The day included a delicious BBQ, stalls with homemade cakes, cream teas and other sweet treats. There were two bouncy castles that were very popular with the children as well as face painting and crafts for all the family.

Dana Mulligan, Marketing Manager at Gilbert Stephens Solicitors represented the firm handing out goodies and green Gilbert Stephens flags to the children.

The event was organised and run by Ottery Help Scheme which was founded in 1992 to provide much needed support to local residents who are experiencing times of illness, periods of difficulty, or life-changing circumstances through uniting and mobilising the goodwill of the community.

It was great to see that many local businesses, including ourselves, contributed a prize for the Tombola. We donated a Cream Tea for 2 at The Clock Tower in Connaught Gardens, Sidmouth. Hopefully this will be enjoyed during the coming summer months.

The entry fee was £1 for adults and 50p for children and all proceeds made on the day went to the Ottery Help Scheme.

Dana Mulligan said, “It was a privilege to see such strong community spirit and we hope that this event has helped to raise both awareness and funds, as the charity continues to go from strength to strength, offering more and more necessary services in response to the community need.”
