Morley solicitors firm funds meal out for local pensioners
MEMBERS of the Siegen Close Tenants and Residents Association tucked into fish and chips at the Mermaid thanks to a donation from a local solicitors firm.
Staff at Stapleton Gardner & Co are celebrating their 125th year with a succession of fund raising events and donations to local good causes.
Colin Roberts, the chairman of the residents association, got in touch with them to see if they might be able to help the group he set up to encourage his neighbours to get to know one another and do things to help themselves.
As a result, the firm not only offered to pay for a trip to the Mermaid for 22 members but also offered to pay for their Christmas and New Year’s parties.
“We can’t believe how fortunate we are at being able to save some funds,” said Mr Roberts.
