National law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has named St Ann’s Hospice as its Manchester office charity for 2019. The hospice provides care and support to people living with or affected by life-limiting illnesses in the Greater Manchester area.

“We always work closely with businesses to create a bespoke partnership arrangement that meets both their needs and ours. We’re really excited about working with Clarke Willmott for the next year.”
