JMW helps to fund therapy for Bolton’s little Ilaria 

16/05/2012

Manchester law firm JMW Solicitors has raised £1000 for a charity that acts as a lifeline for children with brain injuries across the North West. 

A team from JMW took part in The Legacy Rainbow House’s annual Rainbow Ramble, raising £1000 to provide services that improve the lives of brain injured children and youngsters with disabilities. 

The money will help children such as six-year-old Ilaria Spragg, of Darcy Lever, Bolton, to be able to continue to access therapy to improve her mobility and speech. 

Ilaria was born with cerebral palsy, is severely physically disabled and relies on the use of a wheelchair. However after accessing specialist physiotherapy and education services at The Legacy Rainbow House she is now able to take steps with the aid of a frame, her speech has improved and she has grown in confidence.

Ilaria, who is a pupil at St Theresa’s Primary School in Little Lever, attends sessions at The Legacy Rainbow House, which is in Ormskirk, twice a week. Her father Christian Spragg commented: “The therapy The Legacy Rainbow House provides has made a huge difference to Ilaria’s physical abilities and speech and her confidence has come on in leaps and bounds as a result. 

“The team at centre show Ilaria that if she sets her mind to something she can achieve it and really encourage her to try her hardest. She absolutely loves attending her sessions and mixing with all the other children.”

JMW organises and takes part in various fundraisers every year to raise money for The Legacy Rainbow House, including the Rainbow Ramble, which is an 18 mile walk around the West Lancashire Countryside. 

Eddie Jones, head of the clinical negligence department at JMW, presented the funds raised to a team at Rainbow House, including corporate relations officer Serena Stringfellow. 
Eddie commented: “Rainbow House is a lifeline for children with brain injuries and their families. It provides excellent and vital facilities and we want to ensure this can continue well into the future.”

Serena added: “We rely on companies such as JMW taking part in fundraising initiatives to enable us to continue supporting brain injured children and children with additional special needs. Times are tough for all charities at the moment and we are in desperate need of additional funds to help children like Ilaria have a better quality of life.”
