One of Liverpool’s longest established independent Solicitors, Maxwell Hodge has, for a second year, made The Whitechapel Centre their charity of the year.

L-R:   Claire Banks from Maxwell Hodge, Ruth McCaughley from the Whitechapel Centre, and Clare Druce from Maxwell Hodge.

Established in Liverpool in 1975, The Whitechapel Centre started out as a day centre offering hot meals, washing facilities and a safe haven to the homeless people of the city.  Since then, the Centre has developed its services, facilities and expertise to become a widely respected and powerful advocate for the city’s most vulnerable men, women and children who, for varied and often complex reasons, have found themselves without a home.

Director, Claire Banks, and Head of Facilities Management, Clare Druce, at Maxwell Hodge Solicitors recently attended at The Whitechapel Centre, who are based on Langsdale Street, Liverpool, to present a cheque for £1000.00.

Claire Banks said “As an employer and a business with nine offices across Merseyside and Wirral, it is important for us to support a local charity.  The Whitechapel Centre is there to help vulnerable people find their way back into the heart of their community. They do amazing work and that’s why we’ve chosen them as our charity of the year”.

The Whitechapel Centre also co-ordinates Liverpool’s outreach response to rough sleeping as part of the ‘No Second Night Out’ campaign.

Clare Druce explains “Our Head Office at 14 Castle Street has had many rough sleepers who make a bed for the night in our doorway and we feel that we need to do something to help.  Our staff have been fantastic throughout the year by donating clothes and by raising money and by holding a Christmas Jumper Day.
