Contracts shape up for charity

Staff from Martin-Kaye LLP Solicitors have been encouraging local companies to support Red Nose Day 2011.

Members of our specialist employment law team have been visiting local businesses in fancy dress to give them the opportunity to take up a very special offer.

Event organiser, Lisa Batchelor, said: "In return for a donation to Comic Relief, we offered to take a look at the current employment contracts held by the first 25 businesses to contact us, to check they were in good shape. All the money we receive will be donated directly to the appeal and we made no charge for our time.

"We would usually charge between £200 and £300 to carry out this service, so we did suggest a guideline donation of at least £50 per business may be appropriate."

The team is hoping to raise over £1,000 for the appeal and all the money raised by Comic Relief will be used to help transform lives across the UK and Africa.
