Focus on Employment| Irwin Mitchell | Birmingham office charity of the year

Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office is proud to support Molly Olly’s Wishes as its charity of the year 2016.

The Charity was founded in 2011 following the sad passing of Molly Ollerenshaw. They aim to provide emotional and financial support to the lives of children and their families with terminal or life threatening illnesses throughout the UK.

They raise money to fund their “wishes programme”. Wishes can be in the form of medical equipment, an experience or a special gift. They also provide one-off donations to children’s hospitals or medical establishments that need extra support beyond that provided by the NHS and provide a special ‘Olly the Brave’ therapeutic pack including a lion, book and book bag to children who have to have a Central or Hickman Line in their chest, to help them understand their treatment.

For more information on the life changing work the charity does and how your school can support them, please visit or you can contact Rachel Ollerenshaw on

Employees at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office are asked to nominate a local charity to support each year and staff hold a series of fundraising events to support the chosen charity. Last year we supported the Rape and Sexual Violence Project (RSVP) and raised a fantastic total of £21,500, which will go towards helping survivors of sexual violence and abuse.
