Irwin Mitchell Helped Raise £22,000 For Meningitis Charity

West Midlands Law Firm Sponsor Event To Help Them Raise Awareness


National law firm Irwin Mitchell has helped a family whose son suffers from bacterial Meningitis to raise thousands of pounds for a charity which offers care and support to families nationwide.

Dedicated parents Becky and Colin Doyle set up Liam’s Smiles after their son contracted Meningitis in 2010 which supports national charity Meningitis Now which offer a range of services, such as counselling, advice, home visits and even financial support to families affected by Meningitis.

The family organised an event which took place on 7th March at The Village Hotel in Solihull. Over two hundred people from the footballing and business communities attended and the fundraising total tipped the scales at £22,000.

Expert Opinion
We are extremely proud to be a part of this event and also to be able to help to support Becky and Colin to raise so much money for Meningitis Now which is an amazing organisation that gives invaluable care and support to so many families affected by Meningitis.

“We hope to keep in touch with Liam’s family and help them in the future with any other fundraising events and also to raise awareness about Meningitis which affects so many families up and down the country.”
Mandy Luckman, Partner
Liam’s mum, Becky, said: “We were overwhelmed with the support from everyone who attended the event – I would like to say a huge thank you to Irwin Mitchell for sponsoring this for us, it means the world to our family.

“The amount of money we have raised so many to support Meningitis Now is phenomenal – it will make such a different and allow them to help and support families across the UK who have been affected by this terrible condition.

“So as long as there is no cure for meningitis or another person dies or lives with life long after effects of meningitis, Meningitis Now will be round to protect families like mine so all the support and money raised is amazing and we hope to continue to support them.”
