On 14 April, Clarke Willmott were delighted to host a drinks party to launch a new group supporting National charity Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT). The event was kindly sponsored by Towry Limited.
This first event raised over £500 for the Oxfordshire based charity who specialise in supporting children and young people suffering from acquired Brain Injury.
Lisa Turan, CEO of Child Brain Injury Trust, said:
Every 30 minutes, a child or young person will acquire a brain injury. This could be the result of an accident, an illness such as meningitis or encephalitis, a poisoning, a stroke or a brain tumour.
A brain injury has a devastating and life-long impact on the child and their whole family. Bones can mend and scars can heal but a brain injury stays with you for life and impacts on everything you think, feel and do.
Marguarita Tyne, Partner at Clarke Willmott’s Bristol office, said:
We, along with Towry Ltd, Foot Anstey and St John’s Chambers, are pleased to be able to support the Trust, which does wonderful work supporting those affected by these injuries.
This new group is a great way to spread the word in the South West.“
Child Brain Injury Trust provides advice, information and support to families of children and young people who acquire a brain injury, helping them come to terms with what has happened and give advice on how to deal with the uncertainty that the future may hold. For more information follow the link.
