The Government has released several factsheets on the Building Safety Bill. We will be reviewing these and outlining how they can assist providers to prepare for the new building safety regime.
Glow Day is a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of children wearing reflective clothing when they are outside, particularly in the autumn and winter months. Statistics show that wearing reflective clothing does save lives and prevent serious accidents, such as a brain injury.
This year the Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury team made winter warming soups and baked cakes, as well as selling the obligatory samosas to the whole firm while wearing bright clothing, including a neon pumpkin and several other fantastic costumes!
To add a little spice, partner, Donna Holmes, who assists many clients with brain injuries in her role as a Court of Protection deputy and advisor many related matters, brilliantly volunteered to dress in a green neon tutu if the firm pledged over £200, you will see from the photos that the target was reached and the results were quite spectacular.
Overall the team managed to raise £860 on the day, which will go to the Child Brain Injury Trust, helping them to continue to the excellent and vital work they do!
Rankeshwar Batta, Head of the Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury Department, said,
“As a firm, Anthony Collins Solicitors is committed to improving lives and the community as a whole. This is achieved through the work that we do but also by getting involved with like-minded charities and other organisations with the aim of trying to help to make a difference. In our team, we support some of the most vulnerable people in society often after they have been involved in a serious accident. That is why we always try to support the Glow Day campaign to the best of our ability; why not raise some money at the same time. I am really proud of our team, who all got involved as chefs, bakers and salespeople and got really stuck in to the task at hand. I am also grateful to the rest of the firm for getting involved and helping us to raise a fantastic amount for a really brilliant charity!”
