Hay & Kilner raise £10,000 for Chuf

Colleagues at North East law firm Hay & Kilner have kept their fingers on the fundraising pulse right through the year to bring in a five-figure sum for Chuf!

Members of the Newcastle-headquartered practice Hay & Kilner voted to adopt Chuf (Children’s Heart Unit Fund) as their dedicated charity for 2023, and have been carrying out a range of individual and team-based activities throughout the year to raise as much money as they could, in the charity’s 40th anniversary year.

Hay & Kilner team members took part in this year’s Great North Run, Newcastle’s  Dragon Boat Race, a five-a-side football competition organised in association with the Newcastle Young Professionals Forum, held a festival-themed summer garden party, a firm wide quiz  as well as regular office fundraising activities, such as raffles, bake sales and sweepstakes.

After adding an additional contribution from the firm itself to all the money raised by colleagues, a grand total of £10,000 has now been donated to the charity.

Bethany Herbertson, solicitor at Hay & Kilner and head of the firm’s CSR committee, said: “We’ve had a really full calendar of fundraising events this year and with so many people from across the practice getting involved, it’s been a real team effort. To finish the year being able to  hand over what we think is the largest amount we’ve ever raised for any of our dedicated charities is fantastic, and we are thrilled to contribute to Chuf’s vital work. The Chuf team has been so supportive and involved with our fundraising efforts so it’s been great for us to work alongside them during what is a very special year for the charity Chuf.”


Chuf receives no statutory funding and needs to raise at least £500,000 every year to pay for its core services, with donations from individual and corporate supporters being its primary source of income. Charity of the Year support from company’s such a Hay & Kilner make a huge difference to Heart Heroes from all across the UK.

Alicia Clovis-Mothalib, Chuf’s Corporate and Trusts Fundraising Manger commented: ” Not only have Hay & Kilner been fundraising hard, they’ve added so much additional value by donating prizes, generously sharing valuable insights, raising awareness of our campaigns and coming along to various Chuf events throughout the year, their £10,000 donation is the icing on our birthday cake! Thank you to the whole Hay & Kilner workforce, we’ve loved every minute of working with you.”
