Since its establishment in 2004 Charity fundraising has been at the heart of The Academy's work ethic and culture. This week, after 16 years of fundraising The Conveyancing Academy in partnership with Convey Law reach a huge fundraising milestone of £800,978.37 and still counting!
In 2010 Lloyd established The Conveyancing Foundation to support legal practices with charity fundraising. Companies registered with The Conveyancing Foundation ask their clients if they would like to enter the Free Legal Fee Competition by making a £10 donation to charity. The client is then entered into a monthly Prize Draw, where the winner receives up to £500 towards their Legal Fees.
The Competition has been recognised by royalty with His Royal Highness Prince Charles congratulating the team on their fundraising efforts in 2017.
The Foundation has also received immense support over the years from the Conveyancing Association, the Society of Licensed Conveyancers and Bold Group Members.
Money raised through The Academy, Convey Law and The Conveyancing Foundation has helped support thousands of families in England and Wales over the years.
Ty Hafan, one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities has been a key benefactor. The Ty Hafan team offer care to children and support for their families throughout Wales in incredibly difficult times. The Conveyancing Academy in partnership with Convey Law have donated more than £300,000 over the years to this charity, with The Conveyancing Academy's MD Lloyd Davies Appointed as Ty Hafan’s Corporate Ambassador in 2014.
The Academy and Convey Law have also raised over £80,000 for Children with Cancer UK, the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer.
Other brilliant causes include Alzheimer’s Research UK, BBC Children in Need and Mindstep Foundation.
The Conveyancing Academy has hosted and participated in various fundraising events over the years including the Ty Hafan China Trek that raised over £12,000 and The Academy's regular dress down days which have raised over £20,000.
