As a community enterprise run by unpaid volunteers, Wanstead Fringe relies heavily on its sponsors. Their kind donations enable us to pay for the many running costs needed to bring a fortnight of events together for the benefit of our Wanstead Community.
In this article we wish to thank:
We popped along to their office at: 149 High St, Wanstead, E11 2RL to ask them why they continue to support Wanstead Fringe after 5 years. We spoke with Bradley Wright, Partner, Solicitor and a Litigation Specialist…
WF: Hi Bradley, for the benefit of the local community and faithful Fringe followers – what does Edwards Duthie Shamash do and how do you differentiate yourself in the legal market?
EDS: We offer a broad and comprehensive range of Legal Services to individuals, organisations, clubs and businesses. Edwards Duthie Shamash undertake a unique mix of publicly funded, Corporate, Trade Union, Political and private client work. We are a diverse firm both in terms of our Personnel and our areas of expertise. This diversity is bound together by a commitment to establish lasting relationships with clients whatever their financial status.
We are aware that in these difficult times the community has seen the withdrawal of many basic high street services such as banking. Therefore we consider a high street presence to be extremely important and are pleased to offer what is essentially a one stop shop for all their legal requirements.
WF: Bradley, you have sponsored Wanstead Fringe for 4 years now. What made you want to get involved?
EDS: We actively seek opportunities to assist and sponsor local clubs, organisations, schools and community initiatives. Many of the Partners including myself have lived in Wanstead for several years and believed that sponsoring the Fringe was an ideal opportunity to give something back to the local community by supporting an exciting and vibrant initiative. Hopefully our continued involvement in the fringe will benefit its organisation and highlights our commitment to supporting community events.
WF: What do you think Wanstead Fringe brings to the community and local area?
EDS: We believe the Fringe brings the Community together. It appeals to all demographics and individuals, businesses, schools and churches are all involved. It allows local businesses to engage in a rewarding initiative that builds community spirit.
The Fringe enhances the identity of Wanstead and raises the profile of the area in a positive way. It showcases the area to be a diverse and vibrant place to live, work and visit.
