At Ashtons Legal, our commitment to the community doesn’t stop when we leave the office at the end of each day.
We believe it is important to contribute to life beyond work. After all, we are part of the East Anglian and Leeds scenery too. We live here, we play here and it is where we’ve chosen to raise our families.
The Ashtons Charitable Trust (registered charity no: 1158182) was set up in 2014 with the aim of giving something back to an area that has served us so well for so long. By way of grants and donations, the Trust supports charitable causes and community groups in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Leeds (where we have offices).
The Trust is a registered charity and independent body which is subject to charity law. It is managed by three Trustees who work at Ashtons Legal: Adrian Mundell, Alan Brown and Lynn Wicks.
For a number of years, our staff have annually nominated charities to support over a 12-month period. Our staff-nominated charities for 2023 are:
Ashtons Legal supports the Trust with a variety of initiatives and events planned throughout the year, including our annual Wills Campaign where a donation from each new Will is donated to the Trust, dress down days, cake sales, treasure hunts, corporate events, and inter-firm sporting fixtures.
We also support our staff who take part in sponsored sporting events such as skydiving, running, cycling and adventure challenge events.

More information about the Trust can be viewed on the Charity Commission website.
We aim to donate thousands of pounds to charities and worthy causes, but to do this we rely on the generosity of our staff, clients, business contacts and friends.
There are a variety of ways you can donate, however big or small, including via:
- cheque payable to the ‘Ashtons Charitable Trust’
- alternatively, we are always willing to accept items that can be auctioned or raffled at our various events throughout the year. This could be a service you provide for others to enjoy or an item that would have value to a collector.
If you would like to discuss a donation with a member of our team, please email email@example.com.
