‘Jazz at the Castle’ Event raises vital funds for Age UK Oxfordshire

August 3rd 2016

As the main event sponsor of this year’s excellent ‘Jazz at the Castle’ event, Spratt Endicott is delighted that over £4,600 was raised towards Age UK Oxfordshire, a local independent charity providing vital services in Banbury and North Oxfordshire.

On a warm, sunny evening in July, guests arrived at the fabulous Broughton Castle, armed with picnics, chairs and tables to enjoy the George Huxley Jazz Men with their very own brand of traditional jazz.

The crowds of participants were able to sit back and enjoy the live performance, as the sun set on a beautiful day.  They also had the opportunity to walk around the stunning grounds of the Castle, and enjoy the atmosphere of this wonderful event and setting.

Lucy Gordon, Director at Spratt Endicott Solicitors said:  “Spratt Endicott is extremely proud to have been the main sponsor at this year’s ‘Jazz at the Castle’ in aid of Age UK Oxfordshire.  We were delighted to invite friends and colleagues to join us for the evening, and had a really wonderful time.

This is a great example of how we work with local organisations and support them in the work they do.   It means so much to us that we have been able to help raise vital funds to ensure Age UK Oxfordshire’s services reach as many older members of our community, as well as their carers and relatives.”

Paul Cann, CEO of Age UK Oxfordshire said: “We’re so grateful to Spratt Endicott for their generous support, which is helping us reach out to older people facing a struggle.  Older people need champions like them if they are to flourish in a world which is so often tough and ageist.  Not only were we inspired by this act of support; we also had a great time on a lovely evening listening to very cool jazz.  A perfect event.”
