As we celebrate the achievement of Laura Bater, one of our clinical negligence solicitors, and her fiance, Adam Molloy, pictured above, both of whom have just conquered Mt Kilimanjaro, we have paused to reflect upon the mountains some of our clients have to climb in their daily lives.
Laura has chosen to use her African adventure “holiday” to fund-raise for James Hopkins Trust (“JHT”, of which our Adrian Fletcher is a trustee), which has so far helped over 500 children and their families cope with life limiting and life threatening illnesses. Adam is fund-raising for Myeloma UK.
JHT is a charity well known to us; a number of our clients have been helped by JHT, and we see just how vital their work is, every day. Not only do they provide much needed respite, day and night, they also provide specialist therapies, and lasting happy memories in challenging circumstances. This level of specialist provision costs money – £470,000 a year, or put another way, £500 per 24 hours of respite care.
So in saluting Laura and Adam, we salute also the local unsung heroes at JHT, and the families, friends and carers who support everyone in need of JHT’s help.
