Aaron & Partners picks rural charity to be Shropshire Chamber of Commerce partner

10th June, 2017

The legal practice – a patron of the chamber – has selected Shropshire Rural Communities Council to receive a year’s support.

Aaron & Partners LLP is to throw its support behind the Shropshire Rural Communities Council (RCC) for the next 12 months.

The firm will provide the charity with a year’s free membership of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce to help them raise their profile and engage with the county’s business community.[LC1]

As a patron of the county’s chamber, the bespoke legal practice, based at Oxon Business Park, in Shrewsbury, is able to nominate one charity to receive a year’s backing.

And this year they plumped for the Shropshire RCC, which works to make the county a great place to live for everyone by combating rural isolation and rural poverty.

Hugh Strickland, a Partner in Aaron & Partners’ Corporate and Commercial team, chairs the RCC, and he saw the charity as the perfect fit.

“The RCC is a fantastic charity, doing great work in many of the communities in which we work,” he said.

“We felt it was a perfect match for us in terms of geography but also because it gives us the opportunity to really help disadvantaged people in rural areas of Shropshire.

“We look forward to championing the work of the charity to fellow chamber members over the coming year and helping it access the wide range of services provided by the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce.”

The Shropshire RCC has been established for over 50 years for the benefit of people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin.

With 25 staff and 150 volunteers, it is one of 38 RCCs operating throughout England, funded by the Government, local authorities, charitable trusts, public donations and membership subscriptions.

Annually, the organisation works with over 600 voluntary and community groups, offering support to more than 3,800 individual family carers, and developing and delivering projects and services for a wide cross section of Shropshire’s residents.

“We’re delighted to be working with Aaron & Partners,” said Shropshire RCC chief executive Julia Baron. “This partnership will make a huge difference to the charity and to the people that we work with every day.

“The support of the Aaron & Partners team will give us access to people, relationships and networks that we wouldn’t normally have access to. We look forward to building a lasting relationship with the team in Shropshire.”
