Clapham & Collinge Solicitors are delighted to announce that we are main sponsors of The Benjamin Foundation's fourth annual Butterfly Walk fundraising event taking place at Sandringham Country Park on Sunday 25th June. The charity delivers a wide range of support for children, young people and families in Norfolk and Suffolk and each year helps around 2,000 people.
Clapham & Collinge has supported The Benjamin Foundation for several years and we are proud to be main sponsors of this year's event. Marketing Manager Louis Hilldrup-Boorman said "At Clapham & Collinge, we take our corporate responsibility very seriously. We invest time, energy and money in supporting local charities and having seen the valuable work of the Foundation we wanted to support their main summer event.'' Chris Elliott, Marketing and Fundraising Manager at The Benjamin Foundation said ''We are delighted to have the support of Clapham & Collinge as main sponsors of the event which continues their excellent support for us over many years."
Chris continued to explain how the funds raised from the Butterfly Walk would be used "As well as being a great way to spend a few hours with friends and family our Butterfly Walk is an important way of raising money. This year some of the funds will be used to help young people we work with in King's Lynn. One of our services there provides a home and support to vulnerable young people aged between 16 and 24 years old including some with learning difficulties. Some extra funds will enable us to improve the garden area and purchase a shed to store the young people's bikes securely.''
In addition to the walk there are lots of other things to see and do at Sandringham Country Park, with plenty of open spaces for picnics, a large children's play area, restaurant, gift shop and also a farmers' market.
Participants can start the walk at any time between 10.00am and 3.00pm and it costs £5 per person with under 12 year old's free. Payment can be made on the day by cash only and full details about the event are available on the charity's website: http://benjaminfoundation.co.uk/butterfly-walk
'Following our Butterfly Walk event yesterday I'd like to thank you all at Clapham & Collinge for being our main event sponsors. We had perfect weather and a great venue at Sandringham. It was kind of Andrea and Jade to join us for much of the day to help out, and helped officially open the event. Over 200 people took part and we raised £2400 some of which will go to our services in the West of Norfolk.' Chris Elliott, Marketing and Fundraising Manager, The Benjamin Foundation.
