Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors extends it’s Christmas donations this year
For some time now Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors has selected one charity to donate gifts to instead of sending Christmas cards. Over the years this has benefited many local charities including MK Hospital, YMCA, Headway MK and Age UK.
This year we wanted to do more as 2020 has been a particularly difficult year for many charities and clubs so we decided to spread our donation that little bit further by selecting not one, but five good causes.
This year we have chosen Willen Hospice and MK Hospital Charity, who have been particularly hard hit in raising funds due to the pandemic. We have also focused our support on both the disadvantaged youth and the sporting young talent we have in Milton Keynes by donating to Transitions, Ride High and City of Milton Keynes Swimming Club.
Our donation to Willen Hospice will go towards supporting the travel costs of the Willen at Home team who will be caring for patients with life limiting illness in their homes across the community this Christmas. For more information about the amazing work they do click here
Milton Keynes Hospital Charity
Our donation will be supporting the “Baby Leo” campaign which is currently raising thousands of pounds for the neonatal unit at the hospital to purchase four very special incubators to benefit babies born too early, too small or very ill.

Our donation will be supporting the Ride High charity that transforms the lives of disadvantaged children by giving them the opportunity to learn to ride and look after horses and giving them the self-confidence to engage with the outside world. To learn more about the great work they do click here
Our donation will be supporting vulnerable young people aged 14-25 years who are struggling with personal disadvantage. The charity works with young people who have learning difficulties and special needs; those with emotional and mental health issues; those leaving care; and those at risk of offending or criminal exploitation.

City of Milton Keynes Swimming Club
Our donation will be helping to save CMKSC which is the leading swimming club in North Buckinghamshire helping children and young adults of all ages develop this amazing life skill, straight from learn to swim up to elite level. To learn more about the achievements of this club click here
We hope that our giving this Christmas will help make a difference.
