Simpson Millar Raise £1000 for Stick 'n' Step Charity
Simpson Millar LLP's medical negligence team in Liverpool have successfully participated in Stick 'n' Step's 50/50 challenge
. Stick 'n' Step
is a charity dedicated to supporting children with cerebral palsy and their parents.
The 50/50 Challenge Wine Taster
Stick 'n' Step set up the 50/50 challenge to engage with local businesses and schools and challenge them to fundraise. Each organisation was given £50 and from this £50, they were tasked with increasing it as much as they could through fundraising activities. Previous entrants into the fundraiser have baked cakes, washed cars and swam in freezing cold water
Rachel Donovan, Partner in Medical Negligence in the Liverpool office, and her team went about organising a wine taster evening to raise money
for the charity.
With the support of local businesses over £1000
was raised for the charity.
Simpson Millar LLP has also been working hard to highlight some of the challenges that children with cerebral palsy and their families face.
We increasingly find that the care and support is now often not available and there is also a lack of information to help families to obtain any support
Fundraising At the Heart of Stick 'n' Step
Stick 'n' Step is just one of the charities we work with who support families in Merseyside. Set up in 2002 by parents of children with cerebral palsy, they aim to help provide children with therapies and treatment for free up to the age of 18.
The conductive education promoted by Stick 'n' Step is based on a learning system created by a Hungarian Professor called Andras Peto
. He encouraged children to learn and develop in groups to encourage each other to progress.
To keep their doors open and to continue to provide this service to the public, Stick 'n' Step rely on the fundraising of businesses and the community to fund their aim. To keep the service running, Stick 'n' Step need £35,000 a year and they receive no government or NHS funding
We would like to wish Stick 'n' Step the best in their pursuit to raise funds and provide children from across the country with a service they can rely on.
