In 2014, Kings Chambers’ Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Healthcare proudly announced the Child Brain Injury Trust as their Charity of the Year. The Chambers pledged to raise £5,000 through various challenge and fundraising events and achieved this.
The team started their fundraising by marking Action for Brain Injury Week in May with a dress down day and bake sale in each of their offices in Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds. But the fundraising did not stop there. Members of the Chambers also took part in the Great Manchester Cycle and Great North Swim at Lake Windermere.
In October 2014, Kings Chambers organised a Brain Injury Conference in Manchester aimed at professionals working in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence law. The event was also kindly sponsored by Nestor. It was a one day conference at the Palace Hotel with various speakers including, Lauren Stacey. Lauren spoke on behalf of the Child Brain Injury Trust talking about life with an acquired brain injury. The event was a huge success raising over £3,500 for the Charity.
Kings Chambers continue to support the Charity through their involvement in the Manchester Fundraising Group. This is a Group of professionals in the brain injury community who support the Charity on a local level. Most notably they sponsored the drinks reception at JMW Solicitors’ Comedy Dinner in September 2015, which raised over £20,000. You can visit their website here.
