Corporate Social Responsibility

With four offices across the East Midlands, Timms Solicitors recognise that, as a local business, we have a responsibility to society.
We take our role within the wider community seriously and as such undertake many fundraising and charity events.

Free Charity Will Schemes

We run free charity Will schemes, through which many of our clients over 55 years old are able to make their Will free of charge. The charities we are involved with are detailed below:

In 2016, Timms were recognised by Cancer Research for reaching £1.7M worth of gifts through the free Will scheme over the 7 years we have participated. This amount continues to grow.

Rainbows

We actively fundraise for a variety of charities which include:

Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance

Since 2014, visitors to the Timms stand at the Ashby Show have helped raise funds from a raffle and face painting. Pictured below is Fiona Moffat, Managing Partner, presenting our 2017 cheque.

Also, many employees opt out of sending Christmas cards and instead choose to donate to Rainbows Children's Hospice, each year raising between £180 and £200.

Actively Involved

We continue to be actively involved in local community projects and currently sponsor the Duffield Dynamos U10 Girls team and the Stapenhill Swans U15 Boys team. 

Timms sponsored the Children of Courage awards in 2014 in conjunction with the Burton Mail.


Since 2015, Timms have sponsored the Mini Ramathon Family Fun Run in Derby with 5 employees participating in the half marathon and supporting the chosen charity, Rainbows each year


Timms are actively involved in the Alzheimers Society's Dementia Friends Initiative and donate a huge amount of time to run free sessions across the East Midlands


We also work with the University of Derby in a mentoring programme.
