We are members of Suffolk Pro Help as we see this as a means of being able to provide professional assistance to organisations which are vital in maintaining the social status of a wide variety of groups; who, without this help would not be able to develop or provide the service required. It also allows the firm, to meet their social obligations as professional people.
Prettys is committed to providing free (“pro bono”) legal assistance to worthy local causes as part of its corporate social responsibility policy, under which we give back in various ways to the local community. Suffolk ProHelp offers the firm the opportunity to provide pro bono assistance to voluntary and community sector organisations that would otherwise be unable to access the legal advice that they need.
We are a professional
practice providing high quality consultancy advice to clients involved in
property and construction. A desire to put something back into the local community and
to assist organisations who support and help others within our community less
fortunate than ourselves.
Paul Weston Architect
I was very actively involved in the feasibility, fund
raising and architectural services for a new village hall in my village of
Westhorpe. Suffolk ProHelp, was instrumental in providing legal services at the early
stage when we had to transfer the land from Parish Council to our new company
Westhorpe Village Hall. So I have seen first hand the value it brings.
