Lawyers raise hospice funds

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD firm of solicitors wrapped up another year of fundraising with a donation to a local children’s hospice.

Staff from Taylor and Emmet LLP donated £3,560 to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in North Anston.

The firm’s partners donated £250 instead of sending Christmas cards and marketing coordinator Claire Petty organised Zumba sessions, cake bakes and collections of clothing, books and other items.

Some staff ran the Sheffield Half Marathon and others took part in the Peak District Walk for All.

Claire said: “I would like to thank my colleagues for giving their time and energy so generously to help us raise funds for Bluebell Wood.

Julie Hampson, from the hospice, said: “The backing of local businesses is essential if we are to maintain and improve the care we offer.”
