At Dingley Marshall we want to contribute to preserving our environment as well as making a difference to the community and the disadvantaged.
Caring for the Homeless
Lucien Lewin, who usually acts on behalf of corporates and individuals in a variety of industries has begun assisting homeless people being fined by the City of Cape Town as a result of the cities inhumane vagrancy or nuisance by-laws. Lucien felt so moved by the social justice element of the cause that he agreed to take on this essentially human rights case.
Greenpop Trees for Good(s) Partnership
As lawyers we can’t get away from using paper but we know how important the environment is to our planet’s future so we want to give back. As a result we have pledged to buy one fruit tree every month through Greenpop who have, in return, promised to plant it and ensure that it grows and flourishes.
We have the GPS co-ordinates of the trees that have been planted – so please do ask us if you want to visit them or know more about this venture.
Philisa Abafazi Bethu Women and Children ProgrammePhilisa Abafazi Bethu Women and Children Programme in Lavender Hill was burgled in the last quarter of 2015 and was in dire need of many urgent resources and expendables. We therefore made a contribution to assist them in getting back onto their feet. We have added another financial contribution to this charity in 2016.
The program has, amongst its many aims and goals, to provide a safe space for women and children who are victims of sexual and domestic violence to live freely and without fear, to support and educate women and children about their rights and freedoms, to provide support for women and children who are affected both directly and indirectly with HIV/AIDS and to encourage entrepreneurial skills through income generating activities.
Santas ShoeboxWe have been regular supporters of the Santa Shoe boxes project to assist in providing gifts to children in need at the end of the year.

Miracle Kidz Safe House
We decided to donate significant groceries, consumables, cleaning products and children’s stationery to Miracle Kidz Safe House in 2017 as their need is so great. Their mission is to provide a safe and loving temporary home to abused, abandoned and neglected children. The organisation aims to mend their physical medical issues as well as their often broken hearts and then try to reintegrate the children into their environment with their original families or other family members.
