Law Firm Comes To Hospital’s Rescue

Irwin Mitchell Helps Make Easter Special For Poorly Children

05.04.2012

Lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have answered a desperate plea from Leicester Royal Infirmary by delivering 200 Easter eggs this week for poorly children and their siblings.

The Royal Infirmary staff feared they would be unable to hand out Easter eggs this year to young patients as their cupboards were bare and asked local companies if they were able to donate.

Lawyer Anna Manning and Client Liaison Officer Ruth Moore from Irwin Mitchell, which has a consulting office in Leicester, came to the rescue this week donating 200 eggs to the A&E department which will be handed out to children on Easter weekend.

Anna said: “When we heard the hospital had no Easter eggs to give to children over the weekend we knew we had to help out.

“Easter is a special time of year, but unfortunately for some children they’re unable to enjoy it with their families at home due to illness or injury. We hope the Easter eggs make the weekend a bit more fun and exciting for those who are in hospital.

“Irwin Mitchell is committed to being a socially responsible organisation and encourages its staff to take part in a variety of projects as part of a comprehensive community programme, that includes raising attainment in schools, supporting vulnerable groups and offering pro bono support to those who need it the most.”

Sally Markley, play co-ordinator at Leicester’s Hospitals, said: “We are so grateful for everyone’s support and know that this will result in lots of little smiley faces covered in chocolate on Sunday morning!”
