Volunteers are often the bedrock of charitable organisations, but they are not protected from sexual harassment within those organisations.

The event followed the theme of the popular television series as Sarah Huntbach, Senior Associate in the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team, and her partner, Latin and ballroom dancer Jordan Maguire, strutted their stuff on the roof terrace of the ACS offices to raise money for CBIT. Judges gave their scores before a special tap dance performed by Emma Hardman, Senior Associate in Built Environment team.
Caroline Molloy, case worker at CBIT, attended and said that she was honoured to be one of the judges for a thoroughly enjoyable evening, where Anthony Collins raised £160 for the Trust.
Sarah will go on to perform her dance number on Friday 5 June 2015 at the “Strictly 9 to 5” event being held by No 5 Chambers, Birmingham and CBIT at Aston Villa Football Club, where she will compete against members of the judiciary, barristers and solicitors to win the glitter ball trophy!
Mr Rankeshwar Batta, Head of Clinical Negligence and Personal Department, played the role of a very amateur Bruce Forsyth for the evening and said, “It was great that Anthony Collins and the Child Brain Injury Trust could get together and raise money in a fun, relaxed and informal way. This underlined the ongoing strong relationship between ACS and CBIT in supporting families who have been affected by a child who has suffered a brain injury.”
Everyone at ACS wishes Sarah and Jordan the best of luck in the competition!
