Local solicitors Hall Smith Whittingham sponsorship of Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity’s virtual fundraiser has resulted in £6,500 raised for their Children’s Emergency Care Appeal.
Those who took part in the ‘Freedom Miles’ event ran, swam, jogged or walked their miles in their own time to raise money and received a bespoke t-shirt to wear with pride.
Emma Appleyard, Partner, Head of Dispute Resolution at HSW said: ‘At Hall Smith Whittingham Solicitors we take great pleasure in getting involved with local charities which have such an impact in our local community. We were delighted to hear that Freedom Miles was such a big success.’
Carole Salmon, MCH Charity Community Fundraiser said: ‘This was a new event in our fundraising calendar for 2021 and a huge hit! All the money raised is for the Children's Emergency Care appeal which will help provide high-tech equipment and child friendly extras to make the Paediatric unit at Leighton Hospital the best it can be.’
