Dorset Chamber of Commerce member Trethowans has raised £5,000 for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) through its annual fundraising dinner.
The popular event, held on Friday (November 30), saw guests and colleagues of the personal injury team enjoy an evening of fun in aid of the charity. A raffle and live auction, along with ticket sales, helped to contribute to the £5000 total raised.
Rhiannon Daniel, from Trethowans’ personal injury team, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to host this dinner in aid of the Spinal Injuries Association and we are so pleased with how much has been raised. The charity does such important work for those with spinal cord injuries and we know the money will go to such good use supporting these people and their families.”
Elaine Johnston, from the Spinal Injuries Association, added: “The money raised by Trethowans will help us to provide support to even more people across the UK. Last year alone we gave face-to-face support to more than 550 people with spinal cord injuries, 170 family members and 2200 healthcare professionals.”
Trethowans, which has offices in Bournemouth, Poole, Salisbury, Southampton, Winchester and a base in London, is a long-standing supporter of the Spinal Injuries Association. The firm’s personal injury team is a Gold supporter of the charity and over the years staff have taken on several fundraising challenges for the cause, including an epic 68-mile walk and climbing over the O2.
The Spinal Injuries Association is a national charity which is dedicated to helping everyone touched by spinal cord injury, rebuild their lives. It supports people through its wide range of services that are available in hospitals, rehabilitation centres and in an individual’s home.
