As part of our company mission to improve people’s lives, last week, a team from Porterhouse joined the Reading Legal Walk 2022.

Organised by our charity partners for 2022, the Reading Refugee Support Group (RRSG), the Reading Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk to raise money for the charity’s free legal advice services for refugees in crisis across Berkshire. This year, RRSG has provided more than 800 refugees with thousands of hours of free legal advice and practical help that they cannot access elsewhere. The number of refugees in 2022 more than quadrupled since last year and demand continues to soar with refugees in crisis continuing to arrive from Ukraine, Afghanistan and other parts of the world.

We are proud to announce that Porterhouse raised an amazing £800 for the charity (including the matched funding, where Porterhouse donates the same amount raised by its employees) This money will help them to continue to provide free advice and support to refugee families across Berkshire.

We were also delighted to receive a special shout out from one of the event organisers:

a massive well done to those who have raised funds, and especially IBB Law, Porterhouse Medical, and Harrison Clark Rickerbys who have raised the most for the agencies”.

We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to our charity team and everyone who donated and/or took part in the event.
