South Wales Echo, 23rd July 2008
A Cardiff law firm is opening its offices to the public – providing tea and cakes to raise funds for the Stroke Association.
The Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice will be creating a tearoom in their offices to support the charity.
Solicitor Kate Edwards, who is organising the event, said: “Stroke has a greater disability impact than any other medical condition and the tea party is one way we can support this worthwhile charity.”
Louise Bennett, fundraising manager for the association, said: “We wanted to come up with a simple way of raising money that was inclusive, meaning the stroke patients we support, could actually get involved in fundraising and enjoy it.”
“Tea parties are taking place across Wales throughout the summer and we hope to build on our success from last year.”
The lawyers’ party, which is backed by other local businesses, takes place at their offices at 13 Windsor Place this Friday from 4pm.
