The Plymouth office was delighted to sponsor Plymouth Argyle F.C.'s inaugural 'One Game One Community' match day on 24 February.
The Plymouth professional football club organised 'One Game One Community' to celebrate a city and a club that embraces diversity and inclusion. The event was part of the national Kick It Out campaign that aims to tackle all forms of discrimination in football. As part of the initiative, Plymouth Argyle hosted a football tournament before the big game and invited a range of guests from the local community who also were invited to the League One game between Argyle and Bradford City.
Womble Bond Dickinson invited a range of guests to the event including local charity partners Improving Lives Plymouth, an organisation committed to supporting local communities through information, advice and practical support; and Dame Hannah Rogers, a charity supporting children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities. Dame Hannah brought along two of its full time residents to watch the game and had a fantastic day out.
Paul Bramall, Managing Associate at Womble Bond Dickinson, said: "Diversity and inclusion is at the foundation of our business. Whether with clients, employees or suppliers; building relationships is a part of our culture, in which we nurture a spirit of equality, fairness and respect for all which is why we are delighted to play our part in the local community and support this event.
"As a thank you for our support we received a framed and signed Argyle shirt and donated this to Hannah Moon's 101 year old granddad (a lifelong Argyle fan) who was supposed to be one of our guests but unfortunately couldn't join us."
Hannah Moon, Director of Social Enterprise, commented: “It was a fantastic day for us all and a fantastic opportunity for Dan and Joseph to attend such an important Argyle game. We are eternally grateful to Womble Bond Dickinson for making this possible and for their continued support."
