Sutton & Co Solicitor’s supported the East Meets West fundraising event took place on Saturday 6th June 2015 at the CSN International Exhibition and Conference Centre in Birmingham.
The event was held to raise awareness of and vital funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Invited guests celebrated the wide mix of cultures that live alongside each other in Birmingham through a showcase of food, fashion, music, dancing and comedy.
ITV Central newsreader, Sameena Ali-Khan hosted the event and Gemma Timmis from Acorns Childrens Hospice presented the raffle prize of a Free Will writing service donated by Sutton & Co Solicitors to winner Mindy Basi.
Louise Arnold, head of Social Responsibility Development at Acorns, said: “East Meets West was a fantastic evening highlighting the essential care and support Acorns provides to every community and helped to raise vital funds we need to continue our work.
“The children and families, staff and volunteers at Acorns come from a wide range of cultural and religious backgrounds. We work hard to ensure we respect and meet their different and individual needs as part of our provision of specialist palliative care.” The East Meet West theme was chosen to recognise and celebrate this diversity while helping raise vital funds to support our services.
Sutton & Co Solicitors were a fantastic help right from the beginning stages of the event process. Representatives from the company attended committee meetings, promoted the event via their website and word of mouth, sold tables, and even donated a Will writing service as a raffle prize. We are extremely grateful for their support!”
