Since Hattons Solicitors opened its doors, it has been passionate about getting involved in the local community and giving back through donations to local charities, amateur clubs and schools.
The Power of Sport in a Community
We believe very strongly in the power of sport in a community whether its bringing families together at the weekend to support their local team, or whether it’s getting kids involved within sport. It gives them the extra social skills they need and helps them learn about the importance of an active lifestyle.
Our legal team has been involved in many fundraising events and challenges aiming to make a difference to local charities. At Hattons we also regularly contribute to local schools and amateur clubs to help them to raise the funds they so desperately need.
Our community ethos and high standards also filter through the whole internal business as well as the external activity, shown by our people management award, Investors in People.
Hattons Community Activity
