HHD has CAUSE to Celebrate

25 November 2015

Staff from HHD Solicitors attended the beautiful venue of Titanic, Belfast for the CAUSE Gala Ball on 10th October 2015 for World Mental Heath Day. This event also marked the 20th Birthday year of CAUSE, a local charity which provides peer led emotional and practical support throughout Northern Ireland to families, partners and friends caring for mental illness. Services include support groups, helpline, carer advocacy, educational programmes and representation of carers' views.

During the course of the evening there was fabulous support for the charity raffle and auction from all guests. We also heard a number of poignant stories from carers and heard first hand the valuable support that they receive from CAUSE and what a positive impact CAUSE has upon their lives. This event was a great celebration of the work of Carers in our local community.

HHD Solicitors were delighted to name CAUSE as their nominated charity partner for 2015 and 2016. We deal with many complex legal cases at HHD which include mental health issues and we recognise the excellent work of CAUSE, supporting carers and their families.

Over the course of our involvement with CAUSE we hope to raise awareness and much needed money to assist this local charity. For example, our staff have taken part in coffee mornings and organised Christmas jumper days as well as agreeing to complete a number of ‘challenge events' to promote CAUSE.

In May 2015, HHD entered a Relay Team in the Belfast Marathon. "We advise and assist many clients who have benefited from the support and assistance that CAUSE provide. It was a privilege to run our first marathon supporting CAUSE in May 2015 to raise over £1500." Matt Higgins, Partner.

In September 2015, Damian Deazley, Partner participated in the 550km cycle along the Camino de Santiago in Spain, an ancient pilgrimage trail. This took 8 days to complete. Damian raised over £4000. On the evening of the Gala Ball, a cheque was presented to Tanya McGeehan of CAUSE by Damian Deazley and Jenna Boyce.

In October 2015, Fiona Sterritt, Partner participated in ‘going Sober for October', another herculean task, and hoping to raise £1500 for CAUSE.

At HHD Solicitors we were delighted to be Charity Partner in the 20th birthday year for CAUSE and Corporate Sponsor at the Gala Ball on 10th October 2015 for World Mental Health Day at Titanic Belfast. This really was a CAUSE to Celebrate!
