In the Community
THP Solicitors is passionate about supporting charitable causes, the arts, sports and the local community around Reading and Henley-on-Thames. We provide help in the form of a mixture of volunteering, organising, fund raising and sponsorship.
Reading Pancake Race
In 2020 THP Solicitors took part in the Reading Pancake race (dressed as superheros) to raise money for Launchpad, a charity that aims to prevent homelessness in Reading by providing vital support to people who don’t have a stable place to live or are at risk of losing their home. The team made it to the race semi-finals and smashed their fundraising target (but thankfully, no eggs).
Henley Living Advent Calendar
THP Solicitors Partner, Richard Rodway, has helped run Henley-on-Thames’ Living Advent Calendar event for 6 years, helping charity and spreading cheer. Richard has been nominated at The Henley Herald’s Community Champion Awards as a result. THP Solicitors also sponsors the event, covering the technical costs.
THP Solicitors are long-time supporters of the Reading-based charity Rabble, sponsoring them since their inception in 2012. Rabble seeks to advance education of the public in the arts, in particular through training and workshops in the performing arts and through providing performances for the benefit of the public, in order to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to appreciate and access the performing arts. THP Partner Alexis Lane has been interviewed by Rabble for podcasts on how people can get involved and help support the charity.
Reading Legal Walk
THP Solicitors takes part in the Reading Legal Walk each year where teams from local law firms do a sponsored ‘after work’ 10km walk to raise money for local legal advice charities such as Reading Citizens Advice Bureau, Reading Commincare and FLAG DV.
Henley Literary Festival
Launched in 2007, Henley Literary Festival is one of the UK’s biggest book festivals, with 170 events for adults and children in 2019. THP Solicitors sponsor the Henley Literature Festival which we feel brings great vibrancy and energy to the town, as well as a much-needed focus on the power and versatility of the written word. Our donation helps covers the technical support costs of these community-based events.
Henley Rugby and Cricket Clubs
We love sport, played at all levels, and the benefits local clubs provide in both in terms of physical exercise and the pride teams and supporters of all ages bring to their communities. We are long-time supporters of both the Henley Rugby Football Club and the Henley Cricket Club.
