Tozers Solicitors LLP is shortlisted for CSR award in the 2015 Express & Echo Business Awards
Endurance Arthur, chair of Tozers’ CSR committee, comments: “We are delighted that Tozers Solicitors LLP has been shortlisted for the Corporate Responsibility (CSR) award in the 2015 Express & Echo Business Awards and we very much look forward to 17 April when the winners of the awards will be announced at Sandy Park.”
Tozers Solicitors LLP selects a charity of the year every year and raises funds for them; our current charity of the year is Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT). We raised over £5,600 for them in 2014. We raised money in a wide variety of ways. One of our partners, Tracy Lambert ran the New York Marathon on 2 November 2014 and raised £1282 for DAAT on her own which meant Tracy was in the top 5% of fundraisers on Just Giving for 2014. Tracy is currently looking to raise £1500 on her Just Giving page for the London Marathon which she is running in aid of DAAT on 26 April 2015.
For years we have been writing Wills in return for donations to Will Aid charities; Rowcroft Hospice; Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF) and Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT). We are long-time supporters of the Erb’s Palsy Group and assist in the running of their Fun Days, as well as speaking at their conferences to give those attending information about the legal process for free. Members of our staff are trustees for charities including DWT and Headway. Six of our staff are School Governors. Historically and currently, in some cases, we have been involved with the following charities:
- Age Concern Devon
- Citizens Advice Bureaux
- Catholic Trust for England & Wales
- Dame Hannah Rogers School
- Dawlish Gardens Trust
- Domestic Violence and Abuse Service

Tozers was the main sponsor of Exeter’s Great West Run last year and we are the main sponsors again this year. Last year 2,697 runners ran over the start line and this year the organisers are hoping for even more participants.
In Tozers, CSR activities need not be limited to fundraising. You can donate your time to a chosen registered charity. The firm allows staff a maximum of 2 days per year to undertake voluntary work for a registered charity.
