Irwin Mitchell Donates £2,000 To Campaign To Keep Surgical Technology In Use At Royal Hallamshire
Lawyers from the Sheffield office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell recently swapped their suits for walking boots to raise funds for a charity appeal which was established to ensure that advanced surgical technology can be kept at one of the city’s hospitals.
Irwin Mitchell staff organised a fun family walk at Graves Park over the summer to support Neurocare’s ROSA Robot Appeal, which was launched to introduce pioneering equipment for use by specialist surgeons at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.
The incredible kit provides surgeons with detailed 3D maps of the brain, with the information not only reducing the duration of procedures but also offering hope to those with poorly controlled epilepsy, tumours and other complex disorders.
Irwin Mitchell raised a total of £2,000 to support the appeal, with the funds coming from the walk – where children were also encouraged to dress as robots – as well as top-up donations from the firm and also the Irwin Mitchell Charitable Foundation.
Stacy Clements, the specialist serious injury lawyer at Irwin Mitchell who organised the walk, said:
Expert Opinion “The ROSA robot is a truly ground-breaking piece of technology and the Royal Hallamshire is the only NHS hospital in the UK to have access to it.
“Through our work we see the huge impact for serious brain injuries can have and this equipment could play a vital role in helping a huge number of people. With this in mind, we knew we had to do something to raise funds for the appeal to keep it here.
“The walk was a real success and we are proud to support the valuable work of Neurocare and delighted to be able to lend our support to this fantastic appeal.” Stacy Clements - Associate Solicitor
Sophie Thomas, Senior Fundraiser at Neurocare, added: “Irwin Mitchell do so much good in the local community and we’re so proud to be supported by this wonderful company. They hosted a fantastic event which we loved being part of and were delighted to receive this generous donation.”
