Irwin Mitchell Raises £1,715 For Specialist Charity
Irwin Mitchell Leeds hosted a fashion show on Tuesday 24 November and raised £1,715 for the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT), a leading voluntary sector organisation providing support to families affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK.
The fashion show took place in Leeds at the high street store, Jigsaw. Guests donated money to attend the event, and a further amount was raised through a raffle stall.
The raffle offered prizes of a Crystal Clear skin care hamper, a bottle of champagne and a £100 voucher to spend in Jigsaw.
Staff from Irwin Mitchell modelled Jigsaw’s winter collection, and each showcased casual and smart looks which guests could purchase in store.
Sarah Knada from CBIT, said: “It’s great to have support from Irwin Mitchell, and we are very thankful that they hosted this fashion show to raise such a brilliant amount for us. These funds will go towards supporting families who are dealing with a tough time and it’s especially great to see Irwin Mitchell support them around the Christmas period.”
Carolyn Heaton, Partner and serious injury expert from Irwin Mitchell who attended and spoke at the event, said:
“CBIT is a great charity which provides invaluable support to brain injured children and their families. Through our work we understand how important CBIT's services are for families and children affected by brain injuries, and it was an honour to be able to raise funds for them.
"We had a fantastic night in at Jigsaw, and we can’t thank them enough for letting us use their store. It was fun to see some of my colleagues strutting their stuff.”
