Law Firm Raises Thousands to Support Life Saving Service

A leading Midlands law firm has raised more than £7,000 for the Midlands Air Ambulance over 18 months of fundraising.

Solicitors and staff at FBC Manby Bowdler have collected cash for the charity by hosting a family fun day, raffles, a daredevil sky dive, dress down days, and bake sales, as well as making donations in lieu of Christmas cards and for every client satisfaction survey completed.

The firm has also encouraged staff to learn more about the vitally important work of the organisation with Midlands Air Ambulance representatives hosting a ‘lunch n learn’ session for staff. Employees also visited the RAF Cosford and Strensham airbases to gain further insight from the aircrew.

FBC Manby Bowdler has offices across the Midlands Air Ambulance area in Wolverhampton, Willenhall, Shrewsbury, Telford and Bridgnorth and Managing Partner Kim Carr said the firm’s support was a way to say thank you for the charity’s life saving work.

She said: “We have been delighted to help support the incredible work carried out by the Midlands Air Ambulance. Led by the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility Group, staff have organised lots of different initiatives and activities to raise funds, having lots of fun along the way.

“For us, it’s about giving something back to the communities we operate in. We feel that through supporting Midlands Air Ambulance Charity we have been able to help fund a local service that has saved so many lives already and continues to do so.”

Jon Cottrell, corporate partnerships coordinator for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, added: “FBC Manby Bowdler is demonstrating perfectly that fundraising for our vitally important cause is also fun, rewarding and a great way to team build. We are extremely grateful for its support to date, which has helped fund our service, and look forward to being part of its CSR programme going forward.”
