Fairwoods Solicitors raise 1,317 for Derian House

Fairwoods Solicitors, in Preston, raised the vital funds through a series of initiatives including; cake bakes and taking part in Muddy Maniacs.

The money raised will go towards helping a dream come true for a child at Derian House, who will get to watch an NFL game at Wembley stadium later this year.

The fund-raising was part of the firm's ethos of being a good corporate citizen and giving back to the community. Fairwoods is hoping to raise a total of £10,000 for a variety of good causes throughout 2018.

Earlier this year, Fairwoods raised £2,500 for The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, helping the hospital purchase an Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) machine.

Aneesa Bux, manager at Fairwoods Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to have helped Derian House Children’s Hospice raise this money, which will go towards making one young man’s dream come true.

“I’d like to thank everybody at Fairwoods for their hard-work, since we have raised this money as a team and I’m sure both Derian House and the young man will benefit.

“Fairwoods Solicitors is committed to giving back to our local community and we hope to continue our fund-raising throughout the remained of 2018 and into 2019.”
