Christmas Comes Early For Bridgwater Charity

Lawyers at Irwin Mitchell’s South West office have given a Bridgwater charity an early Christmas present by sponsoring the design and creation of new exterior signs to increase awareness of the organisation.


Brainwave is a national charity, providing home-based exercise and therapy programmes for children with a wide range of disabilities and staff at Irwin Mitchell’s Bristol office wanted to recognise the vital work they do.


The signs have the updated Brainwave logo on and it is hoped they will draw attention to the Charity’s Centre in Huntworth.


Paul Smith, the South West Community Manager at Brainwave, said: “The new signs really stand out and will create a very smart look to the Brainwave Centre.


“We are so very grateful to Irwin Mitchell who have shown great generosity in producing these signs; something that we very much needed and which has saved us from using our own vital funds that can instead be spent on helping children.”


Natalie Jones, a medical negligence expert at Irwin Mitchell’s Bristol office, said: “My day to day work in the Medical Law & Patients Rights Team at Irwin Mitchell involves helping children with serious injuries and disability, so it is fantastic to be able to work with Brainwave.


“Funding these signs is something small we can do to help raise the profile of Brainwave and allow them to focus their attention on the vital work they do with disabled children and their families. We are excited about further opportunities to support Brainwave in 2013.”
