Law firm and cancer charity form partnership

21 March 2019

One of the largest law firms in Yorkshire have launched a partnership with Breast Cancer Care.

Keebles, who have a branch in Sheffield, announced the partnership this week, adding to the list of charities they are already committed to.

Michele Wightman, head of the Private Client Department, said. ” Breast Cancer Care is an inspirational charity, who help people find their ‘new normal’ after treatment.”

“We look forward to helping them boost their fundraising goals.”

Junior staff at the firm are arranging a series of fundraising events across 2019, in order to aid the many charities they support.

Molly Rae, Marketing Assistant, said: “Our first event will be held Friday 29th April, which will be a Big Pink Party in our Sheffield office. Our team will be donning pink attire and getting together to eat and drink various pink coloured treats.”

“This party celebrates the merger between Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now, which will unite the UK’s largest breast cancer research charity with the UK’s largest breast cancer support charity to create one charity for everyone affected by breast cancer.”

“We are also in the process of visiting local shops and supermarkets to ask for donated Easter eggs as the firm will be holding a raffle around Easter where, again, all proceeds will be going to Breast Cancer Care,” she said.

Keebles also support DEBRA, a charity which helps individuals who suffer from the potentially fatal skin condition epidermolysis bullosa, as well as MS Society, St Luke’s Hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Amy Graham, community fundraiser for the North and Midlands for Breast Cancer Care, said: “Thank you to the team at Keebles, who we are delighted to be working with.”

“The money raised through this partnership will help us to continue providing free services, such as support over the phone with a nurse, and local group support in Sheffield and South Yorkshire,” she said.

“691,000 people are living with breast cancer in the UK, so support from local companies like Keebles allows us to be there for more people.”
