The Easter Bunny Comes To Town

Lawyers From Irwin Mitchell Make Easter Deliveries To Local Charities

04.04.2012

Lawyers from Irwin Mitchell’s Midlands office are making Easter eggstra special for local charities by bringing the Easter Bunny to visit and deliver dozens of chocolate eggs to children.

The Easter Bunny, also known as Trainee medical law solicitor Tom Fletcher, began his delivery at Oakwood School in Walsall last week (28th March), assisted by associate solicitors Mike Dodd and Luke Daniels, where they handed out 56 eggs to pupils at the specialist school’s Easter Fun Day.

This week, the team is calling in at the Foundation for Conductive Education, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Sandwell Asian Family Support Service, the Norman Laud Association in Sutton Coldfield and St Mary’s Hospice where they’ll donate more Easter eggs to local children.

Tom Fletcher said: “Easter is a time for family and happiness but for many children unfortunately this is not the case due to illness or family circumstances.

“The charities and schools we are supporting do fantastic work all year round to support local children and we hope that the deliveries from the Easter Bunny help to make this time of year extra special for them.

“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.”

Mrs Kay Mills, Head Teacher at Oakwood School, said: “The children were so excited when the Easter Bunny came into their assembly. It was a wonderful surprise, putting the icing on the cake at the end of a great day.

“We are all so grateful for the gift of Easter eggs from Irwin Mitchell. Support of this kind is so gratefully received; it really enhances the quality of our pupil’s lives and we look forward to working on future projects with Irwin Mitchell.”
