A Wyre Forest law firm has donated over £3,500 to a Worcestershire breast cancer charity as part of its ongoing fundraising efforts.
Staff at Kidderminster’s mfg Solicitors have held events throughout the past year for the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven, which provides vital clinical and emotional support to people with breast cancer.
The law firm’s events, which included quizzes, a charity barn dance, the firm’s very own ‘bake off’ final, and staff taking on the gruelling Wolf Run, were mostly held at their Adam House headquarters on the town’s Birmingham Road.
Kirsten Bridgewater, partner and head of mfg’s CSR committee said: “Once again the staff at our Kidderminster office and our CSR representatives have made a great contribution to our fundraising efforts. There has been a huge dedication to running some brilliant, fun events over the past 12 months and importantly, that has helped us to donate to such a worthy cause here in Worcestershire.
“The team at the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven are simply amazing and have helped treat one of our colleagues. They do so much for people who suffer from the disease each and every day – but also for their families too. I hope our donation will help make a difference to the lives of people who rely on the charity.”
Elaine Scrafton, from the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven, added: “We rely on donations to keep the facility open and maintain our high standards of care and support. We are thrilled that the team at mfg Solicitors in Kidderminster chose us as their office charity last year and they have made a huge effort. We cannot thank them enough.”
Ms Bridgewater added that mfg Solicitors will announce its chosen charities for 2020 in the coming weeks following a staff vote.
