Charity of the Year

Every year at North Ainley we have a Charity of the Year whereby we raise funds for the chosen charity with various fundraising events.  During the course of 2019 our chosen Charity of the Year was Maggie’s Oldham.

For those that do not know, Maggie’s is a place where people who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families can find practical advice about benefits and eating well; a place where qualified experts provide emotional support; a place to meet other people; a place where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.

Every day they welcome up to 70 visitors to the centre.  Each time somebody walks through the door it costs £20.00 for them to provide them with the immediate advice and support they need.  They rely solely on donations and fundraising to enable to them to be there for people with cancer and their families, when they need them most.

Throughout the year we have taken part in various fundraising events for Maggie’s; their Kitchen Table Day; the Culture Crawl and the Go Outrageously Orange Day.  We also raised money for them last Christmas with our annual Christmas hampers.  In total, we raised a total of £1,222.00.  The money raised by us would have funded 60 people walking through the door which is amazing.

As well as Maggie’s being our Charity of the Year for 2019, we have also partnered up with them to run a free Wills clinic at the centre for their visitors and their visitor’s friends, family and carers.  The clinic allows visitors of the centre, or their loved ones, to prepare a simple Will at no cost to them whatsoever.  The clinic is run on the second Tuesday of every month between the hours of 2pm-5pm.  The clinic has been running for over 12 months now and is proving to be a great success and extremely rewarding for our fee earners, Jennifer Kitchener and Danielle Judge who run the clinic, being able to support local people in a time of need.

Although 2020 will see a new Charity of the Year for us, we are proud to say that the Wills clinic at Maggie’s will be continuing in 2020.  The clinic usually gets booked up a couple of months in advance so any visitors to Maggie’s, or the friends, family and carers of any visitors are free to contact the Oldham Maggie’s centre to book an appointment at one of the clinics.

We are extremely proud to have supported Maggie’s throughout 2019 and are looking forward to continuing our partnership with them as they are a wonderful charity.

For more information on how they can help you or a loved one, please visit their website at https://www.maggiescentres.org/our-centres/maggies-oldham/ .

Moving into 2020, we are excited to announce that our Charity of the Year will be MIND and we are proud to be supporting them this year to support the brilliant work they do.

From the initial conversation with Vinesh explaining the process to Cassie answering my many questions and getting us through the line! It’s always a stressful time moving home and we were so happy when you rang with the good news (and we could tell you were too!) and we have collected our keys for our gorgeous new home. We would most definitely recommend North Ainley to anybody moving house! Thanks for a great service.read more

    I have used North Ainley for a number of years. They have... successfully dealt with my parent's wills and more recently the sale of 2 properties. The staff are exceptional and imparticular Cassie who took care of the whole process from start to finish whilst I was overseas. She diligently chased all third parties and kept me informed at all times.
