Proud to present £11k cheque to RAINBOWS Hospice
Rainbows, the hospice for children and young people in Loughborough, warmly welcomed our recent donation cheque of £11,185.98, following a busy 12 months of fundraising by our teams.
Rainbows was chosen by our staff as the official charity for the company in May 2016 for a 12 month period. Special thanks to everyone who arranged events, took part and spent money to raise over £11k for this amazing charity.
Claire Twells, Partner at Smith Partnership said: “We were delighted to raise money for the hospice over the last year and we hope it helps, in a small way, to make life a little bit easier for the residents and staff of such a special place. Thank you to everyone who dug deep into their pockets to support all our events during the year and also local businesses who donated raffle prizes.
“The incredible team at Rainbows offer amazing care and support for families in very difficult circumstances. Our legal teams understand many of the issues involved as we deal with many legal related issues during such sad times in many people’s lives.”
