HJ Heroes – Charities We Support and Work With

We’re so grateful to the healthcare workers, charities and keyworker staff who are supporting us through the COVID-19 crisis. They’re the everyday heroes who are looking after us and keeping the nation running at this difficult time.

At Hugh James, we support and work with a large number of charities – causes that resonate with our staff and many that link closely with the work we do in providing legal support to those in need. They include cancer charities, care for children, the elderly, people with disabilities and victims of crime.

With charities facing difficult times at the moment, they need our support now more than ever. We want to shine a light on the important and inspiring work they do so we’ve listed them all below.

They’re causes close to our heart. They’re our HJ Heroes.

Our charity partnerships

Headline charities

Each year Hugh James chooses charities for staff to support. These are charities that make a huge contribution to the communities in which our staff live and work. This year our Cardiff office is supporting Velindre Cancer Centre and Ty Hafan.

Our London office is supporting Theodora Children’s Charity.

Each of these three charities will receive a donation from the firm as well as the benefit of staff fundraising activity and fundraising events involving our clients.
