South Coast law firm Blake Morgan has raised over £400 taking part in a fun filled ‘It’s a knockout tournament’ in aid of Friends of PICU.
Local charity Friends of PICU raises money to support the paediatric intensive care unit at Southampton General Hospital, which supports critically ill children from across the South and the Channel Islands.
Six team members of the BM Injury Group (formerly BL Claims) tested their physical and mental abilities taking part in a range of challenges including an obstacle course, gladiator jousting and inflatable sumo wrestling at the event this week in Royal Victoria Country Park.
Led by clinical negligence lawyer Kym Provan, the team included personal injury lawyer Jim Wood , clinical negligence lawyer Kerry Blomerus, travel claims expert Katherine Ettridge (Travel) and nurse advisors Sam Ward and Jacqui O’Rourke.
Commenting on the fundraising event, Kym Provan, said: “Blake Morgan Injury Group work closely with parents and guardians of children with serious or critical injuries so we understand how devastating that experience is for them.
“Friends of PICU support parents and carers through these difficult times while fundraising to ensure that patients receive the highest standards of care possible. We are proud to support such a worthwhile cause – all money raised will go towards funding much needed equipment and support services from dedicated ambulances and breathing monitors to maintaining accommodation for families of children and babies receiving treatment at the hospital.”
