Each year Simcocks adopts one particular charity to support for 12 months. The aim is to make a significant contribution to an organisation that will impact on Isle of Man life. It is the company’s workforce who nominate and subsequently vote for each group we support. Employees work together to raise money through a variety of ways including organising sponsored walks, cake baking, and holding dress-down days.
This year the staff have voted to support Manx Cancer Help (MCH).
“At Manx Cancer Help we recognise the impact that cancer can have not only on the individual, but also on loved ones, friends and family members and we welcome anyone who may be in need of our support. Manx Cancer Help is here for any person affected by cancer; this may be as a patient who is diagnosed with cancer, or a family member or friend of someone who has been diagnosed. If you are in the caring profession and work with people with cancer, we are here to support you too.”
In previous years Simcocks Advocates has supported:
Supporting the community
Sports coaches, youth mentors, active members of professional organisations and unpaid fundraisers all work for Simcocks. The organisations they work with may be diverse and varied but our staff share one thing in common – a commitment to the community in which they live and work.
We currently sponsor the following organisations :
- Red Eagles Netball Team
- Douglas Rugby Club
- Castletown Golf Club
Scores of schoolchildren and undergraduates have gained an invaluable insight into life inside a law practice after taking part in Simcocks’ extensive work experience programme. Youngsters aged 15 and older, studying at schools across the Isle of Man and at colleges and universities in the UK, have benefited from the company’s work experience programme. Spending a week at our Isle of Man law firm, students have the opportunity to work alongside lawyers and support staff in different departments.
