Community involvement

We believe in being an active part of our community. For us, that means using the skills and enthusiasm of our people to help local groups achieve great things.

Many of our staff are involved in charity work on a personal basis, and this is something the firm encourages. On a firm-wide basis, we hold a number of events throughout the year for a variety of good causes including the well-publicised Children in Need and Comic Relief. We also support local charities, and often sponsor clients when they are fundraising themselves.

Once a year we work closely with our local Age Concern groups to provide will-writing services on their behalf – raising thousands of pounds each year for the elderly in the region.

We participate in the Government's 'positive about disabled people' scheme, which ensures that those with disabilities are treated equally and fairly in our job application process - guaranteeing an interview to disabled people who meet the job criteria.

 

Roythornes' Charity of the Year

This year our staff have voted to support Lincolnshire first responders charity LIVES, whose 700+ volunteers are called out to thousands of  incidents a year.

LIVES also has more than 70 volunteer doctors, nurses and paramedics who respond to complex or traumatic 999 medical emergencies across Lincolnshire.  They bring critical care skills to the roadside, delivering complex procedures and treatments at the scene of the accident that are usually only found in an emergency department, operating theatre or Intensive Care Unit.  This may range from putting a patient into a “medical coma” at the roadside, through aligning severe fractures under sedation, and performing roadside amputation or opening the chest in traumatic cardiac arrest.
