Bath Mind gains £15,000 from baking, walking and dressing down at Royds Withy King

June 20, 2019

Bake sales, dress-down days and charity walks by staff at Bath-headquartered Royds Withy King have raised £15,000 for Bath Mind during its two-year stint as the regional law firm’s charity of the year.

Royds Withy King employees also volunteered hundreds of hours of their time to the charity, which promotes and nurtures better mental health by providing information, activities, advice and support. 

Its vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all and treats people with experience of mental ill health fairly, positively and with respect.

Bath Mind fundraiser Hannah Roper said: “It has been fantastic to work with and have the support of Royds Withy King over the last two years; not only have they supported Bath Mind financially, which enables us to continue our vital work in the local community, but also on a practical and personal level too.

“It has been great to see so many employees take a special interest in our charity and give their time to help at fundraising events and many of our support services. Additionally, Royds Withy King has implemented many of our wellbeing in the workplace initiatives due to the relationship and it has been inspiring to see a local firm put employee wellbeing at the forefront.”

Lawyers and staff at Royds Withy King, which has two offices in Bath – on Midland Bridge Road and Northumberland Buildings Road – have now selected Bath’s main homeless charity Julian House as the firm’s charity for the next two years. 

Julian House works to directly help those most marginalised in society and operates more than 40 projects across the South West from social enterprises to supporting those with learning difficulties. Its work helps to change the lives of some of society’s most vulnerable individuals

Head of Royds Withy King’s charities group Nicola Radcliffe said: “It’s a brilliant opportunity to make a tangible difference, with a focus on raising money and doing something practical too. Our charity partners play an important role in the lives of many people who live in our local communities.

“We encourage all employees to take advantage of the two volunteer days that we offer every year and give back to our local communities.”

Royds Withy King’s London, Oxford and Swindon offices choose their own charities every two years.
