A fundraising barn dance hosted by a Wyre Forest law firm has raised £900 for a county breast cancer charity.
Lawyers from Kidderminster firm mfg Solicitors welcomed over 100 guests to Kidderminster Harriers Social Club where they raised the funds for Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven – a charity which offers people clinical services, therapies and support at the new Worcestershire Breast Unit in Worcester.
The charity is one of the law firm’s chosen causes for the next 12 months and was selected following the emotional support the unit gave to mfg employee Caroline Davis - a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed with the disease in 2016.
Caroline said: “Staff at the unit are tremendous and gave me such amazing support as I successfully battled cancer over the past two years.
“Not only do they provide treatments, but also superb advice on healthy eating and some of the best emotional support available.
“The care they provide needs constant funding so I am delighted to see a great amount raised at the barn dance. It was a brilliant evening attended by people from across Worcestershire. The unit will always have a special place in my heart and I am thrilled that my friends and colleagues at mfg have done so much this year.”
The event was organised by Caroline with support from many of her colleagues at mfg. Caroline who has been secretary to the firm’s chairman, Maynard Burton, for 12 years.
Other events the law firm has held for the charity this year include an office ‘bake off’ and quizzes.
