Stockport law firm Simpson Millar is getting into the festive spirit by raising money for MedEquip4Kids. On Tuesday 18th of December they held a ‘wear your hats to work’ themed day at their offices in Cheadle Hulme. Staff were asked to don their hats in exchange for a donation to the charity. The total amount raised is still being calculated with further events planned for January.
MedEquip4Kids is a children’s charity raising money to provide pediatric medical equipment and facilities for hospitals and community health teams. Their aim is to help ensure babies, children and teenagers receive the best possible care when sick or injured. Established in 1985, they rely entirely on donations from the public and the money they raise is spent directly on the items requested.
Managing Partner at Simpson Millar, Peter Garsden said “MedEquip4Kids is a great charity working hard to raise money for sick and injured children. The run up to Christmas seemed like a timely excuse for some jollity and a good way to get people to dig deep for such an important charity.”
The firm frequently takes part in fundraising initiatives with staff recently joining in Cancer Research’s Race for Life and the Manchester to Blackpool bike ride in aid of Manchester’s Christie Hospital.
