News, Our Community

Williamsons Solicitors have been proud sponsors of the Sailors Childrens Society Sportsman’s Lunch for many years. The event has raised a considerable amount of funds for the disadvantaged children of seafarers that the Society helps, providing basic assistance such as school uniforms when a family are hit by a life changing event.  This year, in the City of Culture, Williamsons have very kindly donated the Amy Johnson Moth for auction at the lunch which follows the local Hull theme.  The Society is currently appealing for donations of other local prizes to auction at the lunch which has historically raised up to £30,000 on the day. Although the lunch is again completely sold out, early bids and telephone bids will be accepted and interested parties are therefore asked to call Wendy Fish at the Sailors Childrens Society on 01482 342331 or email Moth Auction

Williamsons Moth AuctionAbout the Design:
The Wonderful Amy is inspired by 1930s design and Amy’s love for both flying and fashion. Her plane is flying towards a stained glass sun leaving behind it a trail of fabric and flags, representing the countries she flew to. The logos of the Gipsy Moth, the ATA and Hull’s coat of arms can also be seen in the design. The artist has also featured a fish pattern originally seen in fabric, reminiscent of the 1930s to represent the oceans and the fish merchant business run by Amy’s family.

Mr & M

Williamsons were recommended to us and we have not been disappointed. Our sale & purchase was very stressful due to the incompetencies of other legal professionals and estate agents however Williamsons have done their utmost to push them to complete. Communication has been excellent throughout and the team, particularly Samantha and Jane, have worked tirelessly on our case. My husband and I highly recommend Williamsons for your conveyancing needs.

Gordon Sewell was fantastic went above and beyond to get a good result. I've dealt with a few solicitors over the years but never dealt with a solicitor that will get in the oppositions face to get his point the clients point and for me that drive and determination was key to him winning my case. Gordon Sewell is a credit to williamsons solicitors and I personally would like to thank him and the team for there tremendous hard work.
