Longmores Charitable Foundation

Introducing the Longmores Charitable Foundation

2016 marks the launch of Longmores solicitors’ new Charitable Foundation, which aims to help worthy local causes across Hertfordshire and Essex.

Our firm, which has offices in both Hertford and Harlow, anticipates that the initiative will enable it to focus its charitable efforts by supporting the good work of worthy causes close to home - particularly smaller and less well-known good causes that arguably are in greater need of financial support than many of the established and well-known national charities.

The Longmores Charitable Foundation will organise regular fundraising events, which with generous support from local businesses and individuals alike, will enable us to provide financial donations and grants to benefit worthy causes.

Richard Horwood, a partner and Head of Private Client Services with Longmores, is one of the Foundation’s trustees. He said: “We really want to emphasise our local connections with the areas where we work and live and to put something back by supporting local charities that make such a difference to our communities.

“The Longmores Charitable Foundation will allow us to do this in very practical ways that will make a real difference to people’s lives.”

The Foundation’s trustees are Longmores’ partners Richard Horwood, Chris Pease and Rachael Spalton.

Key objectives:

  • Preventing or relieving poverty and financial hardship by providing grants and services to charities or other organisations involved in this type of work
  • Supporting charities that care for individuals who are ill or have long-term physical or medical conditions, as well as initiatives to preserve good health
  • Supporting recreational, leisure, educational and other activities to help young people participate in society as mature, responsible individuals
  • Priority will be given to charities and worthy causes either based in Essex and Hertfordshire or alternatively offering services which directly benefit individuals or communities in these two counties.
