Cheshire law firm thankful after raising £20,000 for flood relief

February 24, 2021

A leading Cheshire law firm has expressed its gratitude to all those who contributed after it helped raise £20,000 for the victims of floods caused by Storm Christoph.

The funds were raised with the assistance of the Warrington Business Awards and Watsons Solicitors, and include a £7,500 contribution from logistics firm Eddie Stobart.

The money will be given to Care UK Charity, which is working with Warrington Borough Council to help those affected in the area.

Around 100 houses in Warrington were evacuated during the 20 January flooding, which was caused by torrential rain.

Danny Hudson, partner at Watsons Solicitors and chair of the Warrington Business Awards, said: “We’re over the moon to have raised this money and we want to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who donated.

“Hopefully this will go some way to helping those whose lives have been affected.

“We wanted to ensure the money was used in the right way, and Care UK Charity are ideally placed to do just that.

“It’s a local charity assisting local families in need. They already have a footprint in the community and work with and know a lot of the families affected.

“They can meet short-term needs with food, clothing and sanitary products as well as medium to long-term requirements, such as furniture, electrical goods and linen, when the time comes for people to move back home.”

Watsons Solicitors, which has been established for more than 60 years, specialises in family law, employment law, wills and probate, personal injury and conveyancing.
