We strive to be actively involved in the community, and as many of the firm’s staff members are local to Cornwall, there is a particular emphasis on helping the local Cornish community. In December 2015 the firm donated a box to the Cornwall Christmas Box project, which provides a box of food to enable a disadvantaged family to enjoy a Christmas meal. The firm also organised a charity Bake Off event to raise funds for Cornwall Hospice, which resulted in very competitive baking!
The firm is also involved in community work at an international level, recently assisting fresh2o with their life-saving “Water for Life” campaign. We have funded a family of four in Ambodiaradihy, Madagascar to enable them to have access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene education, to prevent needless deaths due to drinking contaminated water.
Hugh Murrell has been a Trustee of BF Adventure, a registered charity since 1998. BF Adventure (formerly known as The Bishop’s Forum) which was established in 1989 helps disadvantaged children and young adults in Cornwall offering activities such as basic problem solving, various water sports, abseiling, archery, bushcraft and survival skills, camping and independent living skills etc.
The firm is always interested in being involved in community events and welcome any invitations to participate to help the community or charities.
