We're delighted to announce that Heringtons, a leading firm of solicitors based on the Sussex coast, is supporting Care for the Carers as its Charity of the Year.

Up against tough competition from some other very worthwhile local charities, Care for the Carers received the most staff votes from Heringtons in its Charity of the Year poll.

Richard Fisher, Managing Partner: "Everyone at Heringtons is excited to be working alongside Care for the Carers this coming year to show our support and to help highlight the wonderful work the charity does for all the communities in our branch towns."

Jennifer Twist, Chief Executive at Care for the Carers is equally delighted: "We are absolutely thrilled to be the Heringtons Charity of the Year, and look forward to working with its fantastic team over the coming months. Heringtons’ support will help us to raise funds to make a difference to local carers’ lives, and also to raise awareness of the massive contribution that carers make to communities across East Sussex," she says.

"With diminishing public funding for support to carers and the vulnerable people they support, it's especially important for high-profile, supportive local businesses to recognise unpaid carers in this way. And with Heringtons operating across East Sussex, from offices located in Battle, Bexhill, Eastbourne, Hastings, and Rye, we’re so pleased to have their support to reach even more of the 65,000 unpaid carers across the county.”

More announcements will be made soon about the partnership, along with news of any public fundraising events the team organises, for people across East Sussex to get involved and show their support for unpaid carers.
