Children, young people and families from a local charitable project can’t thank Hewitts Solicitors enough for their generous support.
Gathered at the Pioneering Care Centre on Saturday 4 December, the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) team met with staff from the North East based solicitors to receive a cheque for £6,000, following a fun filled spree of fundraising efforts in support of Together 21 project.
PCP welcomed Sophie Lamont, a newly appointed Partners at Hewitts who also used her connects to secure £500 match funding from Lloyds Bank. Solicitor and chief charity fundraiser Kim Nielson and her 11-year-old son Owen Nielson-Brown, kindly donated sweets for the children, and Hewitt’s Bake Off winner, Sam Herman, brought along her winning white chocolate orange cheesecake.
Hewitt’s charitable donation will provide vital support for children with Down syndrome and their families or care givers through PCP’s transformative project, ‘Together 21’.
Carol Gaskarth, Chief Executive of PCP, said: “Together 21 offer weekly intervention groups for children and young people with Down syndrome including support with communication and Makaton signing, development of numeracy, speech and language, motor skills and independent living skills.
“Hewitts Solicitors have supported Together 21 for 3 years and this year they have excelled themselves hosting many fundraising events throughout the year; including the very competitive and popular ‘Great Hewitts Bake Off’! We truly appreciate their efforts and every penny really helps - £6,000 will make a huge difference.
“Together 21 relies on fundraising efforts to deliver the project which benefits families from right across the North East, and Hewitt’s kind donation will enable our team to continue providing a sterling support service.”
