HGW Solicitors’ Donates £3,000 to ‘Brick by Brick’ Appeal
Harold G Walker Solicitors, one of the South West’s leading law firms, has donated over £3,000 in response to MacMillan Caring Locally’s Brick by Brick Appeal.
The charity aims to raise over £9m to build a new Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital in Dorset. The specialist unit provides palliative care services for patients suffering from advanced, progressive, incurable illnesses. Most importantly, the existing Macmillan Unit which was built in 1974 has seen patient referrals triple in the last ten years. Therefore, the new treatment centre will ensure patients receive the best possible care from Macmillan’s dedicated team of professionals and become a benchmark by which future palliative care wards are based.
Nicola Lowe, the Managing Partner at Harold G Walker Solicitors, said; “We are delighted to have been able to donate £3,000 to MacMillan Caring Locally. I have a personal connection with the charity as my father was cared for at the unit in the final stages of his life and ironically, he was one of the first Ambulance drivers to bring patients to the Macmillan Unit when it first opened its doors over 40 years ago.”
In conclusion Lin Sharp, Capital Appeal Director, MacMillan Caring Locally charity, said; “We are very grateful for the generous donation from HGW’s Charitable Trust in support of our Brick by Brick Appeal. Thanks to their support we have moved one step closer to achieving our aim of building a world-class palliative care unit.”
