Staff at the practice nominated their favourite charities before all employees cast their votes to pick which charity would be the beneficiary of its fundraising activities for the next twelve months.

Lorraine Chatterton, Practice Manager of Pabla & Pabla Solicitors said: “We are all delighted that Francis House Children’s Hospice is our Charity of the Year. The hospice does such wonderful work for families across our community, and we are really looking forward to supporting them this year.”

Francis House supports more than 550 families of children, teenagers, and young adults with life limiting and life-threatening conditions. Francis House services are all given completely free of charge, providing respite care, home care, end of life care and bereavement support.

Julie Williams, fundraising officer of Francis House, said: “We are most grateful to Pabla and Pabla Solicitors for making this commitment to support our charity and we look forward to working with the team throughout the year.

“We get very little Government funding, so we rely on the support of the local community and organisations to ensure that we can continue to provide a free service to the children and families who need us most.”

Managing Partner, Patrick Flynn was delighted to be able to get involved in such a worthy cause. He said: “We have a host of challenges and events planned through the year – not only to raise awareness of the incredible work the hospice does and why they need the community’s support but also to give them funds to help them to continue to expand their vital services.”

To kick start their fundraising, staff took part in a RunThrough Media City event.

The team all completed 5k and 10k runs and were rewarded with a raft of donations raising more than £780 plus gift aid.

The firm aims to raise a significant amount of money over a twelve month period and make a large contribution to the charity.
