Expert lawyers from Irwin Mitchell’s Leeds office were on hand to celebrate the achievements of Wheelchair Sports Hull at the organisation’s second Hull and East Riding Disability Sports Awards on Friday (27th February).

The law firm provided sponsorship at the event, which was held at Hull’s KC Stadium. As well as the awards, the evening provided an opportunity to raise money for Wheelchair Sports Hull, through an auction. 

More than £5,500 was raised on the night, which will be invested in local sports teams in Humberside, as well as a number of wheelchair sports programmes and initiatives.

Sarah Coles, an Associate and expert medical negligence lawyer at Irwin Mitchell’s Leeds office, said:
Expert Opinion
The evening was fantastic and it was a privilege to celebrate the achievements of those involved in wheelchair sports in our local area, as well as the many initiatives that have been implemented in Hull to provide disabled people with access to sports facilities and activities.

“The organisation works extremely hard to support disabled people who are interested in getting into sport and we were delighted to offer our support and sponsorship to this event, particularly as we have seen first-hand how important these organisations are for some of our clients.

“The funds raised at the event will ensure those who have suffered serious injuries are able to continue to take part in sport. It is such a fantastic cause and we are already looking forward to supporting the event again next year.”
