Our Charities

At JMK Solicitors ‘Making People Our Priority’ is one of Our Core Values therefore we take our commitment to charity seriously. We also believe that helping others first is very important so at the beginning of each year we select two charities who we commit to working with throughout the year.

Every year, employees are asked to suggest personal charities and events to the Social and Charity Committee, giving reasons why a certain charity is important to them. All employees have the chance to vote for the charity they prefer and the two with the highest votes are selected. We believe it is important to support our staff and contacts whom we value and ‘celebrate their successes’ in various activities.

Fundraising Events

Each year we hold a series of fundraising events in-house and externally. On the last Friday of every month we have ‘Dress Down Friday’ for staff to show off their personal style and to start the weekend of the end of the month early. To take part in ‘Dress Down Friday’ we ask staff to fill our charity buckets with their loose change! We have extra Dress Down Days such as ‘Wear Red for Valentine’s Day’ or ‘Christmas Jumper Day’.

We aim to hold at least one external table quiz in a local bar or hotel each year for our staff as well as the public. These table quizzes are promoted on our website, Facebook and LinkedIn pages coming up to the quiz. We believe table quizzes are great events to raise vital funds for any charity guaranteeing a good night’s craic with lots of raffle prizes to be won!

To mark key holidays during the year such as Easter, Summer and Halloween we hold themed Coffee Mornings and Big Breakfasts in-house for our staff. The best homemade cakes and tray-bakes are brought into the office by staff to share amongst each other while making a donation and enjoying a cuppa with a colleague they might not see very often.
