Sheffield’s Taylor & Emmet LLP, is rounding up another busy year of fundraising with a donation of £1,100 to PACT. Throughout 2013 the solicitors organised a variety of imaginative events to raise money for PACT. Taylor & Emmet’s marketing co-ordinator, Claire Fletcher, visited Sheffield’s Children’s Hospital to hand over a cheque to PACT co-ordinator, Beryl Welburn and patient, Billy, whose family benefited from the charity’s support services during his treatment for Leukaemia – he is now in remission.
The firm kicked off its fundraising efforts with a donation of £250, in lieu of Christmas cards last year. A calendar of events was then arranged, which included a strawberries and cream themed dress down day in July and a chance for staff to learn more about each other by completing a ‘My Favourite Things’ challenge.
Claire Fletcher said:
“The majority of Taylor & Emmet’s team lives in and around Sheffield and we feel very lucky to have organisations like PACT enhancing the excellent paediatric facilities on our doorstep. It is very heartening to know the money we have raised will be put to such good use and will enable the charity to continue to help children like Billy and his family.”
