The Brain Charity has been given a £4,500 boost thanks to the generous supporters who attended its annual ‘High Tea and High Heels’ vintage tea party.
With the support of Birchall Blackburn Law, The Brain Charity held a tea party at Liverpool Town Hall as part of its activities to highlight Brain Awareness Week (March 18-20).
The vintage tea party was supported by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Liverpool and Birchall Blackburn Law, which has offices in locations across the North West including Manchester, Preston, Southport, Chester, Chorley, Leyland and Morecambe.
It was hosted by actor and comedian, Crissy Rock, with live music from singer, Jamie Somers.
Carolyn Garlick, finance and office manager at The Brain Charity, said: “It was a wonderful afternoon and everyone looked fabulous in their heels. We owe a huge thank you to the kind people who came and donated to our £4,500 total. That money will go straight into giving people with life changing neurological conditions the emotional support, practical help and social activities they need.
“A big thank you to the Lord Mayor, Tony Concepcion, and Lady Mayoress, Ann Concepcion, and to Birchall Blackburn Law for supporting the event. Without the generous support of companies, organisation and individuals, we wouldn’t be able to provide the much needed help, advice and support that we do.”
Dianne Yates, partner and head of serious and catastrophic injury for Birchall Blackburn Law, said: “The work The Brain Charity does for people with neurological conditions is priceless. We’ve see the difference it makes to the people we represent and supporting the tea party was an honour – and a great excuse to get dressed up and enjoy an afternoon party.”
The Brain Charity offers emotional support, practical help and social activities to people with a neurological condition and to their family, friends and carers. The charity works tirelessly to raise awareness and acts as a voice for the thousands of people affected by a brain and spine related conditions.
