1 in 3 children are living in poverty in Greater Manchester.
That’s why Key 103 Cash for Kids have launched Mission Christmas, in partnership with the Manchester Evening News. They are asking people to buy just one extra present this year that they can give to a disadvantaged local child to make their Christmas morning special. They are looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for babies, toddlers, children and teenagers aged 0 to 18 years and you can donate at one of their drop-off points across the region.
North Ainley has, once again, agreed to be one of these drop off points and would very much appreciate your assistance and co-operation with this charitable event. There is no price guide and nothing can be too small – every little helps!
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our second annual Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research.
The coffee morning is open to everyone, so why not call into the office for a piece of delicious homemade cake (lovingly baked by our very own members of staff) and a good cuppa.
We hope to raise money to support the wonderful work carried out by the charity and look forward to welcoming you on Friday 25 September between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Please spread the word and help raise money to support this worthy cause.

One of the greatest concerns for many people is what will happen if they have to move into a care home, or require assistance in their own homes. There have been many reports in the press of people being forced to sell their homes to pay for care home fees or of people having to work hard all their lives only to have their savings depleted by nursing home fees.

Capital Allowances were thrust into the Commercial Property limelight in April 2014 with the introduction of a new “pooling” requirement. Changes to the Capital Allowances Act 2001, brought in by the Finance Act 2012 mean that during the sale or purchase of second hand commercial property tax relief may be available for expenditure allocated to “plant and machinery” in a chargeable period.

150,000 Manchester children living in poverty are not expecting a visit from Santa this year.
That’s why Key 103 Cash for Kids, in partnership with the Manchester Evening News have launched Mike & Chelsea’s Mission Christmas. They are asking people to buy just one extra present this year – a gift that will make Christmas 2014 special for a child living in poverty. They are looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for babies, toddlers, children and teenagers aged 0 to 18 years and you can donate at one of their drop-off points.
North Ainley Halliwell has, once again, agreed to be one of these drop off points and would very much appreciate your assistance and co-operation with this charitable event. There is no price guide and nothing can be too small – every little helps!
Our collection date is Tuesday 9 December 2014 and the last date to drop off any toys/gifts will be Monday 8 December by 5:15 p.m.
This year, for the first time, the staff of North Ainley Halliwell are taking part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ to help raise awareness and money for Macmillan Cancer Support on 26th September 2014.
We are supporting Macmillan to raise both money and awareness of the great work done by the charity. Throughout September the Firm has been running a ‘Great Office Bake Off’ Competition, with the final on 26th September, but most of our staff will be baking to support the work done by Macmillan, helping families at a time they need it most. MacMillan is such a wonderful cause and we are delighted we are able to do something to support them.
So, if you are in Oldham on 26 September 2014, why not come along to our office between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm, meet our friendly staff, have a cuppa and help to raise money for this worthy cause.
This year the staff of North Ainley Halliwell Solicitors will be supporting Jeans for Genes Day. The charity invites everyone across the UK, from nurseries and schools to companies, to wear their jeans for the Day in return for a donation. Funds raised provide vital care and support for thousands of children with genetic disorders. This year’s event will take place on Friday 19th September 2014.
The money raised by organisations and schools on Jeans for Genes Day funds a range of initiatives that improve the quality of life of children and families affected by genetic disorders, which affect 1 in 25 children in the UK – that’s more than 30,000 babies born each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.
