We are delighted to have been chosen by staff at Shoosmiths in Birmingham as their ‘Charity of the Year’. The team at Shoosmiths Birmingham Office are planning a number of fundraising activities and events throughout the year to raise money to support SIFA Fireside.
“We at Shoosmiths Birmingham office are delighted to work with SIFA Fireside over the next year as our chosen charity partner, nominated and voted for by our colleagues in th Birmingham office. The support for the charity has been outstanding, with everyone recognising the fantastic work they do. Working in Birmingham city centre you can’t help but notice the number of people sleeping rough and we are excited to help play a small part in making a difference.” Alexandria Jones, Shoosmiths
Just some of the activities already planned are:
- ‘Pennies from heaven’ from local office staff, where employees can choose to round up their monthly pay with the “pennies” being donated to us;
- A Family Day in December at their Birmingham office – a family event with food, drinks, games, stalls, a kids disco and Santa! All money raised goes to our charity;
- Volunteering here at SIFA Fireside and providing pro bono legal advice to support us (which is enormously appreciated);
- An office quiz to raise money for SIFA Fireside.
Support from business helps us to continue to fund and deliver our much needed drop-in centre and services based at Allcock Street, Digbeth, where we work with some of Birmingham’s most vulnerable adults: people who are homeless or vulnerably housed.

We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all the team at Shoosmiths in Birmingham and to their company for encouraging and supporting staff involvement in their local community. Find out more about Shoosmiths and the work they do to support communities….
