Vertex-lawKent lawyers have pitched in to help vulnerable children go on a summer camp.

The Caldecott Foundation, in Smeeth, near Ashford, has received £500 from Vertex Law, part of Cripps Harries Hall. Staff at the firm took part in fundraising activities including cooking lunches for their colleagues and dress down days.

Vertex Law’s Hazel Dermody explained: “Caldecott is one of our staff’s chosen charities and we are pleased to contribute to their summer activities.”

The Caldecott Foundation aims to provide excellence in care, safeguarding children and young people. It offers a full range of care services including assessment, residential care, education, therapy and fostering to children who have suffered cruelty and neglect.

Alison Ranns, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at Caldecott, said: “We are very grateful for the support Vertex Law have given us over the years. This money will buy new equipment to improve the children’s experience during their summer camp.”
