A group of Birmingham lawyers continued their good work for the Caudwell Children charity by taking part in a fire walk on hot coals.

Medical negligence experts Scott Tolliss, Laura Ralfe, Adam Wright, Olivia Jenkins and Rachael Adams, from leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell, faced their fears and took on the dash across coals with a core temperature of around 500 degrees Celsius.

This is the second challenge some of the lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have taken on to raise money for Caudwell Children, after climbing Mount Snowdon last month.

Caudwell Children, which Irwin Mitchell in Birmingham works closely with, offers equipment, treatment, therapies and much-needed support services for disabled children and their families across the length and breadth of the UK.

Sara Burns, a Partner in the medical negligence team at Irwin Mitchell, said: 

Expert Opinion
Once again the team did a fantastic job and took on this amazing challenge to raise money for Caudwell Children, which is a great cause.

“Through our work we have seen the impact having a disabled child can have on a family and therefore we understand just how important the work of the charity is. It provides invaluable support and resources to improve their quality of life and help with their development and rehabilitation.”
Sara Burns, Partner

Kirsten Greaves, from Caudwell Children, said: “We’re extremely grateful for the support we have received from Irwin Mitchell Birmingham. The group’s fundraising efforts from their Mount Snowdon climb were fantastic and this latest feat will hopefully add to their amazing total so far.
