Harrison Drury in the Community

For well over 100 years we’ve believed with a passion that our firm has an important role to play in society and creating healthy and thriving communities.

We strive to make it possible for our communities by giving something back to charities, not-for-profit organisations, community groups and education providers, whether it’s through financial donations, pro-bono advice or simply by volunteering our time to help out.

As a firm, we are a key supporter of the Preston Youth Zone project, St Catherine’s Hospice, Winckley Square Community Interest Company, Cash for Kids and the Foxton Centre, a homeless centre in Preston, to name just a few.

Many of our directors and staff are heavily involved in charitable work, giving up their time to support community projects, sports clubs, school governing committees and other charitable and philanthropic organisations.

In September 2016, Fiona Tyldesley completed a 11,000ft skydive at Blacknights Parachute Centre Lancaster which had been organised in conjunction with St Catherine’s Hospice to raise funds on their behalf.

Our culture of being part of our communities has four guiding values. We strive to:

  • Raise money as a firm for local and national charities and voluntary organisations, as well as offering advice and support in a personal capacity
  • Support our staff as individuals, not just employees, assisting and encouraging them where we can in work they may be doing within the community
  • Develop young people, inviting individuals to spend time within the firm on work experience as a way to assist them with their development and give them an insight into law in practice
  • Work with our local schools, colleges, universities and other education stakeholders to support the career aspirations and development of young people
