Preston based Fairwoods Solicitors has raised £2,500 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, through a number of initiatives, including holding a ‘wear your pyjamas to work day’ and taking part in the 10k Audi Preston run.
The money raised will allow Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital to purchase an Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) machine. Through non-invasive treatment, EMDR assists suffers of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety, panic attacks and phobias, to understand that their stressful experiences, which have triggered their disorders, are in the past and consequently, will help patients return to a more comfortable state of mind.
Fairwoods Solicitors is a leader in dealing with personal injury claims, catering to clients across the country, ensuring they receive their deserved compensation, swiftly and efficiently.
Aneesa Bux, Manager, Fairwoods Solicitors, said: “I’m immensely proud of the hard work put in by the team at Fairwoods Solicitors in supporting the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. We chose them as a result of the excellent work they did in response to the MEN attack. The money raised will go towards providing important treatment to individuals suffering from debilitating disorders.
“As one of our charities of the year, we plan to continue our fundraising for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and colleagues will be taking part in Muddy Maniacs in Blackburn on 16 June, where we hope to raise awareness and money for this incredible charity.
Lucy Tunn, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, added: “We would like to thank Fairwoods Solicitors for their generous donation, which will go towards the purchase of a brand new EMDR machine.
“The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital is a Centre of Excellence and the largest children’s hospital in the UK. It provides specialist healthcare services to children throughout the North West, as well as nationally and internationally.
“With thousands of extremely poorly children entering through our doors each year, it’s important that the hospital has funding to perform research and conduct projects to ensure the highest level of health care for our patients. Our research also helps increase the understanding of various health problems and illnesses, so that we can improve diagnosis and treatment, as well as improving the design of hospital equipment and facilities.
“Without the support of our Corporate partners, provision of state of the art machines such as a EMDR, would be a lot more difficult to fund.”
