Corporate Responsibilty

Each year the firm supports a variety of charities across Devon and encourages staff to get involved with fundraising and volunteering activities.

Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is core to all aspects of our operations, from the way we conduct our business to the ways in which we contribute to the Devon community.

At Kitsons, we know that business doesn’t always get done in the office and the benefits of team work. This is why we attend and create unique events for all of our staff to be a part of. We support local clubs, such as Torquay United Ladies FC, to the Exeter Chiefs. We’ve even scaled Ben Nevis together in aid of Diabetes UK, driven to Spain for St Luke’s and cycled across Exeter for Hospiscare South West. Being a part of Kitsons is more than just work; it’s a friendly, supportive environment.

Miles for Mark - Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge 2015

Staff from leading Devon law firm Kitsons are getting ready to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge this July to raise money for charity in honour of their friend and colleague, Mark Batten.

Mark, who was Chief Cashier at Kitsons, passed away suddenly in March 2014. He worked at Kitsons for over 35 years and was a prominent and well liked member of the firm. In 2013 when the firm took on the National Three Peaks Challenge, Mark acted as a volunteer driver from our head office in Torquay to Scotland and back.

On Saturday 11th July 2015, 30 members of staff from Kitsons’ three offices in Torquay, Exeter and Plymouth, will take on the ‘Miles for Mark’ challenge, attempting to walk 24 miles in just 12 hours. Staff will be raising funds for Diabetes UK which is the chosen charity of Mark Batten’s family.

Four teams of walkers and one team of runners will take on the steep climbs and descents of Pen-y-ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m). These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
