The Cambridge team at law firm Irwin Mitchell have donated £1,500 to buy vital medical consumables, including lifesaving drugs and dressings. This investment equates to a month’s worth of crucial kit for specialist emergency medical charity Magpas to use, when bringing A&E care by land and by air to patients in life threatening situations.
Having chosen Magpas as their charity of the year, this group of solicitors will be working hard to organise a variety of fundraising events, including the 3 Peaks climbing challenge.
Neil Whiteley, Regional Managing Partner at Irwin Mitchell, says, “We are delighted to be working with Magpas. We are very aware of the amazing work that the Magpas Helimedix team do, helping to save the lives of seriously ill or injured people across the region. It’s great to know that these initial funds make such a difference, there couldn’t be a better reason for making a donation than to help save a life. But now the real work begins!”
Magpas receives no direct Government funding and relies entirely on public donations. Support from corporations like Irwin Mitchell is crucial for the charity to continue to provide its essential service.
Antonia Brickell, Head of Communications at Magpas, says, “On behalf of Magpas Helimedix, I would like to thank Irwin Mitchell for their generous and thoughtful donation: funding a month’s worth of equipment will help to make a critical difference.
At Magpas, we know life is precious. Our key focus has always been to deliver specialist care, within the right time frame, where it is needed most. Our prime goal is not only to save people’s lives, but for them to recover more quickly, spend less time in hospital and return to a decent quality of life with their loved ones. Partnering with Irwin Mitchell is a huge privilege and we look forward to promoting their continued support over the coming months.”
