Social distancing rules were carefully followed and an amazing group of 20 people from Anthony Collins Solicitors collectively covered over 78 miles by cycling, walking, running and any other means possible to make sure that we visited 21 of our most vulnerable clients, make them smile during lockdown by simply chatting to them and giving them a gift, and in the process we raised £2,705 for CBIT!
CBIT are one of our key charity partners that does such fantastic work for children who have suffered a brain injury providing specialist support to them and their families. The funds raised will ensure they can continue to provide their support, albeit on a remote basis, to many families across the Midlands who need so much support. Lisa Turan, CEO of CBIT said, “the whole team at CBIT are hugely grateful to the ACS team and I as CEO cannot express my thanks enough!”
Rankeshwar Batta, Head of Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence said, “I am absolutely delighted at what we all achieved for CBIT but equally so proud of the ACS team that took part in this event making a real difference for CBIT and of course our clients in this very difficult period for all of us. I know the monies raised will be used to make a positive difference for people who need it most at this time and I am glad we played a small part on 30 October 2020 to help CBIT continue their great work.”
