As one of the biggest law firms in the area, Hegarty Solicitors is an integral part of the local community in both Peterborough, where we established our first premises back in 1974, and in Stamford and Oakham.

We take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. We are committed to making a positive impact on the community we work in and to providing a working environment that embraces equal opportunities and diversity.


We have a dedicated charity committee who organise a number of fundraising events throughout the year. This year our nominated charity of the year is the Trussell Trust, specifically the food banks in Peterborough, Oakham and Stamford.

The Trussell Trust support a nationwide network of food banks and together they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

There are more than 1,200 food bank centres in the Trussell Trust network, about two thirds of the food banks in the UK. They support these food banks to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis (for instance by advice agencies, GPs, social services and schools), as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face.

More than 14 million people in the UK live below the poverty line. They understand that every person’s struggle with poverty is different and that it takes more than food to end hunger. So they bring together the experiences of food banks in their network, and communities, to challenge the structural issues that lock people in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
