Charity of the Year

At Ellis-Fermor & Negus, we are committed to supporting local charities working in the communities around our offices and we nominate a charity each year to help raise their profile as well as providing financial support. Through our Charity of the Year scheme we are proud to have been associated with many excellent local charities and to have been able to play a small part in promoting their causes, building relationships and giving back to our local communities in this way.

Our Charity of the Year 2021-2022 is the Joseph Cooper Trust.

The Joseph Cooper Trust is a local charity based in Stapleford which was set up to help provide small wishes to children with cancer and other life limiting illnesses, and to offer financial support to their families whilst going through treatment.
