Blake Morgan LLP takes on fundraising challenges to name a puppy

Blake Morgan LLP Cardiff chose Guide Dogs as their Charity of the Year for a two-year partnership and decided to fundraise to name a guide dog puppy.


Blown away by the enthusiasm of staff participating in the exciting fundraising activities

The staff planned a calendar of events across the two-year partnership to raise funds for Guide Dogs. Their team came together and had fun organising events such as a quiz, a 5-a-side football competition, a dress-up day, a series of sponsored walks, a virtual running challenge and a Six Nations Sweepstake. One of the Partners at Blake Morgan took on a tandem triathlon and ran a 'virtual' and the actual London Marathon to help them meet their fundraising goals. Staff also took part in some of Guide Dogs' own fundraising campaigns such as our Great Guide Dogs Tea Party and our annual birthday celebrations.

Katie Greenaway, trainee solicitor with Blake Morgan LLP said, "Our staff have really enjoyed getting involved in the various fundraising challenges and we've been blown away by people's enthusiasm! We've started shortlisting names for the guide dog puppy and will shortly be putting names to a staff vote. We can't wait to find out what the guide dog puppy will be called - watch this space!"

It's been a pleasure working with Guide Dogs as our charity of the year and to support such a fantastic cause. We know what a difference guide dogs make to the lives of blind and partially sighted people and it's been our privilege to help support the charity in its vital work.
