Solicitors and a counselling charity based in St Albans have raised more than £10,000.
Debenhams Ottaway marks the end of its partnership with Youth Talk by raising funds for more than 200 much-needed counselling sessions for young people in the community.
The solicitor focuses on assisting small local organisations that may make a significant difference.
A spokesperson for Debenhams Ottaway said: “Our collaborative partnership with Youth Talk started back in 2018 and in the last four years we’re delighted to have contributed more than £10,000 to help the young people of St Albans who need counselling and support. This has been achieved through a fantastic fundraising effort from our people, supported by matched funding and donations from the firm.
The community has participated in a wide range of fundraising events, from bake sales to photo contests, bingo evenings, and triathlons, displaying their support for the local community and assisting young people struggling with mental health.
David Barker, Chief Executive at Youth Talk said: “Youth Talk has been truly blessed by the support of Debenhams Ottaway. You have all been such a delight to work with and we’ve been so lucky with how your team has got behind the need to support our local young people. Our work relies on the goodwill, determination and passion of our local community – the team at Debenhams Ottaway never fail to amaze and inspire us, thank you.”
