Legal staff help brain charity

Solicitors have swapped the office for the outdoors in South Yorkshire to celebrate the anniversary of a charity helping children with brain injuries.

Staff from Irwin Mitchell took part in a 2.6-mile walk around Rother Valley Country Park to raise funds for The Child Brain Injury Trust to mark its 21st year.

They were joined by more than 80 parents, young people and supporters of the charity, which helps children with brain injuries.

Lawyer Kate Petchey said: “The work the trust does is vital to provide information and support to families and we were really happy to organise this event to help boost its fundraising efforts.”

Rachel Ritter, fundraising manager for the Child Brain Injury Trust, said: “The event at Rother Valley has raised over £1,000 for the charity.”
