Last week we were honoured to attend some fantastic events in aid of some truly amazing charities.
On Thursday, we attended the amazing Headway Preston and Chorley Glitter Ball, which included a dance-off inspired by Strictly Come Dancing!
Having worked with Headway Preston and Chorley for many years, we were proud to attend and be headline sponsors of the event last week. Members of our Medical Negligence, Serious Injury and Marketing teams attended to watch eight couples (comprised of local business professionals and expert dancers) who took to the dance floor and performed routines for the entertainment of the guests in aid of raising money for Headway Preston and Chorley.
Headway Preston and Chorley are a charity that provides a wide range of support to those with acquired brain injury, their families and carers, alongside promoting the awareness of acquired brain injury throughout the local community. The ball looks set to have raised a fantastic amount to help them with their work, and we we’re extremely proud to be the headline sponsors and play our part in supporting this fantastic charity.
On Friday evening, members from our Serious Injury team had the honour of attending the Jan Fairclough Ball in aid of the Walton Centre in Liverpool, a specialist hospital trust dedicated to providing neurological care.
The yearly ball is dedicated to the memory of Jan Fairclough , with this year’s ball raising over £80,000! Our team had a fantastic evening at the event, which took place at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool and featured a charity auction and other initiatives to raise funds for the hospital charity.
On Saturday, we attended the annual Back Up “Snow Ball”, which celebrated 30 amazing years since Back Up, an organisation providing information and support for those affected by spinal cord injury, was first founded. The ball was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the work they do and involved black tie or snow/winter themed fancy dress, awards and dancing.
Fletchers Head of Serious Injury, Adrian Denson, commented:
Our charitable work is something we’re extremely proud of. In dealing with Serious Injury cases, we see first-hand how much support these charities provide and we know that often they do so on a shoestring budget. Events such as the ones we attended last week really make a difference, and we’re proud to support them. As well as being a chance to recognise the importance of these organisations and give something back, it is also great for team building and bringing our team members together who may not work directly with each other.
