Parry Law are delighted to be supporting the Strode Park Foundation as their chosen charity.

Established 1946 the Strode Park Foundation is a Kent charity providing vital care and support services for children and adults with disabilities.

The Foundation aims to meet all levels of need, from those requiring a small amount of home care and support to people with more complex disabilities requiring neuro-rehabilitation or 24 hour nursing residential care.

Strode Park promotes independence well-being and choice throughout its care services and enables people to live life the way they choose.

We look forward to this special partnership in this particularly special year for Strode Park as they celebrate their 70th Anniversary.

A charity has been presented with £1,500 after a year-long community project led by Parry Law.  Donations flooded in from businesses and fundraising included a raffle, auction and evening meal at The Abode in Canterbury.  The cash will help Relate East Kent – our chosen charity of the year which offers counselling services.

Carolyn Parry said “We can’t believe the generosity of the people of Whitstable, Herne Bay and surrounding areas”.

“We kept the fundraising going through the year, even with small events such as a cake bake at our office and face painting at the Whitstable Regatta.  All our staff have been outstanding and we all have a lot of fun doing this”.

World Cancer Day at Parry Law


Too many lives are touched by cancer; whether we have personally experienced the cruel consequences of the disease or simply know someone who has struggled through the treatments, it is something that impacts on everyone’s life.

This year we decided to mark World Cancer Day on Thursday 4th February. The local Cancer Research shop were incredibly supportive and supplied us with 50 Unity bands to sell. The leading cancer charities have all been selling Unity bands in their nominated colours at a suggested donation of £2 each. Every member of staff supported this worthy cause.

In order to boost our fund raising further we also organised an office bake sale. The contributions were impressive! A surprising number of people brought in edible contributions including both homemade and store bought sweet treats, savoury snacks and fruit for those with less of an indulgent side (and more restraint!) than others. Needless to say, the mountain of options proved popular and people donated generously.

The day brought some laughs, some yummy home baking and raised cash for a very worthy cause in the process.

World Cancer Day is a time to stop for a moment and give thanks to our UK cancer charities for their continuing hard work in their campaigns to raise awareness, promoting lifesaving research and providing aftercare and support to suffering individuals and their families.

We at Parry Law hope that the £235 that we raised will play even just a small part in securing a safer, healthier future for individuals and their families whose lives are impacted by cancer, and would encourage everyone to continue raising awareness and taking part in charitable fundraising events, now and in the future.
