As a legal support partner of CBIT in the Midlands, members of staff at ACS organised activities throughout the day including samosa sales and cake sales. They were also challenged to wear their brightest clothes to work – all to highlight the important road safety message of “Be Seen, Not Hurt”. Not only did everyone sacrifice their diets in the name of charity, but £230 was raised for the Trust on the day.

Mr Rankeshwar Batta, Head of Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury department said “The Child Brain Injury Trust support children and their families in very difficult circumstances and we have partnered with them for a number of years now supporting their projects and initiatives.  We thoroughly enjoyed supporting the Glow Day campaign where the whole team got involved to show off their ‘master chef’ talents to support a very worthwhile awareness initiative.”
