June 10, 2016
Exchange Chambers has selected The Joshua Tree as its official charity.
The partnership, which will run for the next two years, will see Exchange Chambers organise a series of fundraising events.
The Joshua Tree supports Cheshire families living with the life-changing experience of childhood cancer. Currently supporting around 60 families, the charity is also planning to build a new support centre in Sandiway, Cheshire.
Commenting on Chambers’ support of The Joshua Tree, Tom Handley, Director at Exchange Chambers, said:
‘‘We are delighted to support The Joshua Tree as our official charity.
“In selecting our charity we looked at the size of the organisation, where it is based, what its aims are and, most importantly, the people it supports.
“As a Chambers we have a real interest in the community in which we serve so the chance to support a local charity was of paramount importance to our barristers and staff.”
Peter Smith from The Joshua Tree commented:
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected by Exchange Chambers as its chosen charity and are really excited about our partnership.
“It is our 10th anniversary year and the partnership comes at an exciting time for our small charity as we start to break ground in the building of our new fit for purpose Joshua Tree Support Centre in Sandiway, Cheshire in the coming months.
“The fundraising by Exchange Chambers will help us to reach our goal of building the Support Centre much more quickly and also enable us to increase the number of families affected by childhood cancer who currently access our services.”
