Grand Refurbishment and Macmillan Coffee Event


A Great Big Thank You



We would like to say a great big thank you to everyone who attended the Refurbishment and Macmillan Coffee event on Tuesday 8th November at our head office on King Street in Bridlington.

 

 Murray Hills Solicitors office is a grade 2 listed building, one of the oldest in King Street.  
The Directors made the decision to restore and renovate bringing the same up to modern standards while still keeping many of the buildings existing charms.



Managing Director Mr Keith Murray said
“We took the decision to refurbish the office to provide a comfortable working environment for our staff and warm friendly atmosphere for our clients. The building has stood the test of time but in need of updating and modernisation.”

The three hour event ran from 12-3pm and officially opened by Bridlington Mayor, Cllr. Liam Dealtry, with a cutting of the ribbon





Despite the cold November weather the Bridlington community came out in force to support the event which was being held to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support as well as giving people the opportunity to see the new look office situated in the towns centre.

Keith Murray added
Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity  close to the hearts of many of our staff and we hold a coffee morning every year. We hoped that combining the two events would generate more interest and therefore help us to raise as much as possible for the charity. We had a wide selection of homemade cakes and buns and served tea and coffee to all that attended. It was a great success and I would like to thank the Mayor for officially opening the event and to everyone that attended”



The grand total raised for Macmillan Cancer Support is an impressive

 £252.06


We would once again like to thank everyone who attended, supported the event and donated to Macmillan.

You Are Invited




You are Invited to The Grand Refurbishment & Macmillan Coffee Event at 10-12 King Street, Bridlington On Tuesday 8th November from 12pm until 3pm

 

Murray Hills Solicitors are a local Solicitors firm with three branch offices but their head office and roots began in Bridlington, serving the local community not only with their legal needs but also through charity sponsorships and support.

 

Murray Hills head office, 10-12 King Street Bridlington, is a Grade 2 Listed building built in the early 19th Century making it one of the oldest buildings in King Street and an established sight in the town centre but over its long history the building has faced some problems, due to its age a decision was made for a full refurbishment.

 


Mr Keith Murray, managing Director said
 
“We have conscientiously fully refurbished the office bringing it up to modern standards and working conditions, creating a comfortable working atmosphere as well as a warm welcoming space for clients while still retaining the buildings original charm.”

 

To celebrate months of refurbishment Murray Hills are holding a Grand Refurbishment Event, being opened at 12pm by Bridlington Mayor Cllr. Liam Dealtry.
 
Mr Murray added
“The event will enabling the people of Bridlington to come to the office, relax, see the improvements made and chat to us about everything that has been accomplished in this renovation”
 
As well as having an opportunity to visit the office Murray Hills are hosting their annual Macmillan coffee afternoon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support in which tea, coffee and cakes will be available to purchase and all money raised goes to the charity.  

 

Mr Murray continued

 

“This event is purely to show the town our newly renovated offices and raise money for the fantastic charity, there will be members of staff on hand should anyone have any legal questions but showcasing our services is not what we intend the event to be about, we are proud of the revamped building and want to show it off. Macmillan also holds a place in the hearts of many of our staff and we hope that as a result of combining the two events more of the community will attend on the day enabling us to raise as much as possible for the wonderful charity”

 

So join Murray Hills in celebrating the new look office and raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, as No One Should Face Cancer Alone.

WCSH Logo

Murray Hills Solicitors are very happy to be sponsoring Hull and East Riding disability sports awards at KC Stadium on Friday 20th May 2016. The inaugural awards comes back for its 3rd year to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of those involved in local disability sport.

Hull is one of only three cities in the UK which holds its own Disability Sports awards and as well as celebrating the achievements of disabled sports athletes and offers a chance to pay tribute to the ‘unsung heroes’ who help to make the disability sports community in Hull so strong. The event also raises much needed funds for disability sports in the Hull and East Riding area.

A little about Wheelchair Sports Hull

Wheelchair Sports Hull was set up to raise the profile of disability sport in Hull and East Riding and to help disabled people participate in sport. They provide funding, support, and promote disability sport clubs and athletes. Every penny that is raised goes directly to disability sports in Hull and East Riding.

Since being established WCSH have given out over £15,000 to athletes and disability sport clubs in Hull. They hold a number of fundraising events across the year promoting disability sports while raising much needed funds for the disability sports in the area. WCSH could not do this without you.

After, the success of London 2012 Paralympic Games Daryl Jones, Founder of Wheelchair Sports Hull wanted to give praise to athletes and clubs in a manner that nobody had thought of hence disability sports awards was created and is now in its third successful year.

Daryl Jones said “We are thrilled to welcome Murray Hills Solicitors to our list of supporters. With the Paralympic games just around the corner disability sports in our area will be set with sponsorship from businesses like Murray Hills Solicitors – the support allows us to keep hundreds of disabled people in sport each year. A massive thank you to all at Murray Hills Solicitors for supporting access to sport for all”
Keith Murray, managing Director of Murray Hills Solicitors added “Here at Murray Hills Solicitors we pride ourselves on assisting the local community in a variety of ways, whether that be helping clients buy a house, make a Will, our staff taking part in local events or supporting local charities. Wheelchair Sports Hull and the Hull and East Riding disability sports awards have recently come to our attention and we are very happy to be able to offer our support to this great organisation.”

Mr Hutchinson & The Hull Marathon


As readers of our Blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts will know Mr Chris Hutchinson Director and Solicitor at our Beverley Office took part in the Hull Marathon on Sunday 13th September to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society. We are very happy to say that not only did Chris complete the gruelling 26.2 miles but he survived to tell the tale and here is his story in his own words:-
 
 

‘Whilst waiting calmly, if somewhat nervously, with the other 1100 runners for the race to begin, it was probably a very good thing that I could not foresee the suffering to be undergone at about mile 17 or 18 when my erstwhile trusty legs had turned to lead and I could not imagine how they were going to carry me the rest of the way to the finish line!


It was occasionally really quite hot but the heat was mitigated frequently by a welcome breeze. Although promoted as a flat race, no-one remembered to tell that to the Humber Bridge – we hit the Bridge first from the Hessle side,  at about mile 13, and it appeared  that it sloped upwards for ever. Notwithstanding that, it can’t be denied that there are outstanding views from the Bridge, nor that the rest of the race was interesting. From the Llamas in East Park and the KC Stadium in West Park there was much to grab the runners’ attention. The highlight had to be, however, the fly past by the red arrows as we were making our gruelling progress up (yes another  hill!) Boothferry Road.

 
I have to admit I was somewhat jealous of the relay runners at times when I saw them handing over to team mates; what I wouldn’t have given for a fresh set of legs!
 
The marshals were excellent; they clapped and encouraged us all the way and this was particularly appreciated towards the end of the race when every step was painful.  They also had a variety of ‘goodies’ to hand out, not just water, but jelly babies, other sweets, orange slices and bananas.
 
Despite the pain and suffering endured towards the end of the marathon, the sense of achievement (and relief!) when the finish line is at last crossed is immense.’
 


Everyone at Murray Hills Solicitors would like to say a great big well done to Chris (and everyone who took part), so far he has raised £345.90 for the Alzheimer’s Society through the Just giving page, there is still time to make a donation no matter how small to this wonderful charity and to help say “Well Done Chris”


 

“Alzheimer's Society is the leading UK care and research charity for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, their families and carers. To find out more go to www.alzheimers.org.uk

Hull Marathon



In 2014 Chris Hutchinson, Director and Solicitor at Murray Hills, ran the London Marathon, despite vowing to never run another he recently attended a presentation by the Alzheimer’s Society and was so impressed by their dedication and passion he decided to run the Hull Marathon to raise money for them.
 
The RB Hull Marathon takes place on Sunday 13th September and takes a 26.2 mile course through Kingston Upon Hull, more information, including the route, can be found on their website http://www.thehullmarathon.co.uk/
 
Chris said “I was very impressed by the passion shown by the speakers at the event, and also by the fact that in addition to the support services they offer, one of the main aims of the charity is to fund research with a view to ultimately discovering a cure for dementia. Many of us have experience of friends or relatives who have had to deal with the problems that dementia causes for both the individual suffering the disease and the members of his or her family. Imagine the suffering that would be avoided if one day a cure is found. I think it is a great charity”
 
The Alzheimer’s Society support people affected by dementia, providing information, care and assistance. More information about the society and their work can be found on their website http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/
 
Please show your support for Mr Hutchinson and If you would like to donate to this wonderful charity it would be gratefully received and can be made at our offices or via the Just Giving site http://www.justgiving.com/Chris-MurrayHills
