As lawyers to many St Albans’ families and businesses, Debenhams Ottaway is for the third year running supporting one of the most popular events in the local calendar, the St Albans Cathedral Fireworks Spectacular. This fantastic display attracts 20,000 people who come to enjoy the evening which has raised over £750,000 for local and national charities.
Debenhams Ottaway is particularly pleased this year to support the event as its chosen charity for 2019/20, Youth Talk, is one of the nominated charities, alongside The Hospice of Francis. Youth Talk provides a safe place for young, vulnerable people to talk and get support from qualified therapists. The service is available to 13–25 year olds who live, work or attend school/college in the District of St Albans (Harpenden, London Colney, Redbourn, St Albans, Sandridge and Wheathampstead).
With only one month until this year’s fantastic firework display lights up the skies of the Verulamium Park on Saturday 2 November from 7.30pm, it’s time to get those hats and gloves out and practice those ‘oohs and aahs’.
With huge thanks to the cathedral and local volunteers, it’s definitely one not to miss!
Managing Partner, Susan Glenholme comments, “We are very proud of our connections with the St Albans community and are always happy to be involved and support wherever we can. The event takes a huge amount of organisation and everyone involved deserves our thanks as do those who will be attending to help raise money for these fantastic charities. The event raises much needed funds for local charities who support the most disadvantaged members of our community whilst providing a great opportunity for all members of the local community to come together for a family-fun-filled evening.”
