Birmingham Law Firm Scales Snowdon For Charity

Team From Irwin Mitchell Raise Vital Funds For Caudwell Children

09.10.2014

A group of Birmingham lawyers have smashed their fundraising goal, so far raising more than £1,400 for Caudwell Children by taking part in a number of events, including climbing Mount Snowdon.

Medical negligence experts Adam Wright, Scott Tolliss, Neerali Madhvani and Olivia Jenkins, from leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell, scaled Wales’ highest peak to support the national charity. The team reached the 1,085m summit in around 4.5 hours on a thankfully dry, and fairly sunny, autumnal day!

Caudwell Children, which Irwin Mitchell in Birmingham works closely with, provides support services, equipment, treatment and therapies for disabled children and their families throughout the UK.

Olivia volunteers regularly for Caudwell Children and will be joining a group of 25 children fighting life limiting conditions and their families during the ‘Destination Dreams’ holiday to Florida later this year. The fully supported annual trip is organised and funded by the charity and for many families is their only chance to enjoy a holiday, due to the day-to-day demands of caring for their disabled child.

Expert Opinion
The team did a fantastic job in both scaling Mount Snowdon successfully in such a great time and raising so much money for Caudwell Children.

“We have first-hand experience of the impact having a disabled child can have on a family and we understand the importance of charities, such as Caudwell Children, which provide invaluable support to improve their quality of life and help with their development and rehabilitation.”
Sara Burns, Partner
Kerrie Davies, from Caudwell Children, said: “We’re very grateful for the support we’ve received from Irwin Mitchell in Birmingham. The group’s fundraising efforts from their Mount Snowdon climb were fantastic and they will help us fund our services so we can help transform the lives of disabled children across the UK.”
