Brown Turner Ross take the cancer fight to Southport
Merseyside solicitors, Brown Turner Ross, are hosting a fundraising dinner in Southport this March in partnership with national charity CLIC Sargent to support the fight for young lives versus cancer.
The North West-based law firm pledged to support CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading children and young people’s cancer charity, with fundraising and support as their official charity for 2019. For their first event in the new partnership, Brown Turner Ross will be hosting a 3 course dinner and night of entertainment at Auberge Brasserie in Southport on 7 March, with all proceeds from the night being donated to CLIC Sargent.
Sam Bushell, director at Brown Turner Ross solicitors, said:
“It is unimaginable that almost everyone is affected by cancer in someway and the incredible work that CLIC Sargent are doing is vital in the fight against this horrendous disease.
“Making CLIC Sargent our chosen charity for 2019 was a very easy decision, they help not only young cancer patients and but their families as well. The BTR team is looking forward to the night and we hope this will be the start of a rewarding partnership.”
The event will feature a raffle draw with local organisation such Red Star Brewery, Southport clothes store Muse, Christopher Maerevoet Hair & Beauty, Liverpool Everyman Theatre and Aiden Byrne’s Restaurant MCR showing their support with prizes.
In 2018, CLIC Sargent supported over 800 families in the North West. The charity support young cancer patients and their families with emotional support and advice as well as financial giving. Last year alone CLIC Sargent gifted £128,946 to help families in the region with extra costs that can accumulate when a child is being treated for cancer.
Sophie Meadows, Fundraising Engagement Manager for Merseyside and North Wales at CLIC Sargent, said:
“We are so thankful that Brown Turner Ross chose to support us this year, having the generosity of companies like them back our project is vital to help as many people as we can.
“The fundraising dinner in Southport next month is set to be a really fun event for everyone. We have been blown away by how many organisations have offered to support the night. There are so many young people fighting cancer on a daily basis, not just in the North West but across the UK and we will do everything in our power to help them win the battle.”
The event on the 7 march will start at 7pm at Southport’s Auberge Brasserie and will feature live music from singer Anne Michelle. Tickets are just £30 per person and can be booked by calling Brown Turner Ross on 01704 542002.
