Irwin Mitchell Southampton To Host Dorset Netball Event For SSIT Charity

Expert Lawyers From Irwin Mitchell Taking Part In Netball Tournament

26.03.2015

Irwin Mitchell’s Southampton Office is hosting a Netball Tournament in aid of the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust (SSIT) this coming Saturday the 28 March at Ferndown Leisure Centre in Dorset.

There will be teams of local accountants, barristers and occupational therapists and physiotherapists from the Duke of Cornwall Salisbury Spinal Centre taking part.

The Southern Spinal Injuries Trust assists people with spinal cord injury in the South and South West of England, enabling independence and quality of life. This can mean anything from funding resources for the spinal centre in Salisbury to providing for individual needs in respect of specialist equipment or other assistance.

There will be an afternoon of games followed by a raffle, with all proceeds going to the charity, which provides support for those affected by spinal cord injuries.

Ruth Johnson, Associate Solicitor at Irwin Mitchell, said: 

Expert Opinion
“It’s a great opportunity for local businesses to come together and enjoy an afternoon of netball whilst raising funds for SSIT.

“SSIT provides funds to individuals who have sustained spinal cord injuries to allow them to access resources over and above that provided by the NHS. The individuals we act for are able to access additional resources through the claim.

“This is not the case for everyone and we are therefore proud to support and help raise funds for a local charity that can provide assistance to those who cannot access additional equipment through any other means.”
