JMW to take giant leap of faith for Child Brain Injury Trust

At JMW there are many charities that are close to our hearts and we are keen to support their good work whenever we can.

That's why when the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) asked us to be a part of a zip wire fundraiser they are holding from the top of the Imperial War Museum North we jumped at the chance - quite literally!

Now 15 intrepid members of our Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team have volunteered to test their nerve with the event and hopefully raise almost £2,000 for this fantastic cause.

The challenge will see the brave bunch launch themselves 250m across the Manchester Ship Canal at a height of 30m. Several of the team are scared of heights so it will be no mean feat but they have cast their fears aside to ensure we can raise as much money as possible.

CBIT works nationally to support families with children who have been affected by an acquired brain injury, whether that has been caused by an accident, or by medical negligence. However to improve their service to the North West region, the charity will soon put in place a dedicated support worker who will be tasked with ensuring more families there can get the help they need.

There is a significant cost attached to CBIT's ambitious plans so initiatives such as JMW's zip slide challenge are vitally important to ensuring they are realised. With JMW representing so many children affected by acquired brain injuries, it is something that we are more than happy to throw our weight behind.

But we need a lot of help to reach our target, with the money raised helping to ensure more families that are facing possibly the most difficult and frightening times of their life can access specialist support from CBIT.

Any amount, large or small, that can be spared would make a massive difference to the lives of brain injured children. If you would like to help us on our way then you can donate via our Just Giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/teamjmw.
