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.
Manx Workshop for the Disabled
For 2018/19 staff voted to support the Manx Workshop for the Disabled. This charitable non-profit organisation works with people with disabilities on the Isle of Man to enable them to realize their full potential. Visit their website to find out more about their outstanding work.
RAAD NY FOILLAN SPONSORED WALK
This summer we have set ourselves the challenge of walking the Raad ny Foillan (Way of the Gull) footpath to raise funds for the Manx Workshop for the Disabled.
Over twelve weekends between May and September 2019 teams will trek the almost 100 mile route around the perimeter of the Isle of Man, starting and ending in Douglas. Ranging from 4.5 miles to 12.5 miles, the sections consist mostly of coastal footpaths and take in the breathtaking beauty of the Island.
If you would like to take part and walk this beautiful route with us, or if you would like to sponsor our efforts, please do get in touch on 304695 or with Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download a sponsorship form and details of the schedule here.
For more information on the Raad ny Foillan route go to Visit Isle of Man.

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. If you are a teacher wanting further information about our work experience programme contact Simcocks’ HR Manager Suzanne Stevenson at email@example.com
