Glamourous Fundraiser For Charity That Helps Disabled Children
One of the largest law firms in the UK is sponsoring a glamorous charity ladies' lunch in Birmingham.
Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, which has more than 300 partners and more than 1,480 associates, consultants and senior advisors, has sponsored Caudwell Children’s Birmingham Ladies' Lunch. The event is being held at the renowned Belfry Hotel and Spa in Sutton Coldfield, on Friday 5, April.
Caudwell Children is a national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families. It gives children access to the services, equipment, therapies and treatments that they need to lead happy, active and independent lives.
The Birmingham Ladies' Lunch, which runs from 11am-3pm, is an exclusive afternoon of fashion, food, beauty and entertainment which sees guests enjoying a Champagne reception before they browse a variety of stalls featuring local and national retailers. Luxury goods on sale include handbags, independent clothing and beauty products.
Founded in 1912 Irwin Mitchell has a commitment to social responsibility. It provides volunteers for community initiatives, gives free legal advice to those in need and face hardship, supports educational initiatives and delivers many other activities and services.
Emma Rush, a partner within the medical negligence team based in Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office, is also a member of the Birmingham Ladies' Lunch organising committee and has a professional interest in Caudwell Children.
Expert Opinion“We have a long history of supporting communities and being involved with what’s happening locally is a natural part of our day to day working life.
“The support that Caudwell Children gives to disabled children in Birmingham and the West Midlands is extraordinary, and by partnering with them we are continuing our support of a local community cause that we value so much.
“I have represented many families where children have been left with significant disabilities and in need of lifelong private care due to injuries sustained at birth.
“So I fully understand how vital Caudwell Children’s work is as I’ve seen the many challenges that the parents of disabled children have to overcome.
“Knowing that the money raised through the Birmingham Ladies Lunch will support families like those that I’ve worked with is deeply satisfying.” Emma Rush - Partner
Sarah Freeth, challenge and events manager at Caudwell Children said that Irwin Mitchell's support had ensured the success of the event.
As she explained: “Sponsorship of the event will help us to maximise our fundraising efforts and will enable us to help even more disabled children in the region.
“The partnership with Irwin Mitchell is perfect because just like Caudwell Children it is striving to achieve the best possible outcomes for the disabled children that it supports.”
The Birmingham Ladies' Lunch will also include a raffle, auction and silent auction, and with the opulent nature of the event there’s sure to be some ‘must-have’ goodies up for grabs.
“The wonderful Tom Lister, the actor, singer and performer who also recently starred in the smash hit West End Musical, 42ND Street, is to host and sing at the event," Sarah added.
