Paul Hampson and John Hughes, Joint Managing Directors of Hampson Hughes Solicitors, travelled to London recently to meet the wife of Prime Minister, David Cameron.
They were invited to a private reception with Samantha Cameron at Number 10 Downing Street along with representatives of national children’s charity, Caudwell Children.
This follows the duo’s decision to fund the charity’s new Merseyside and North West Family Support Service, which provides practical and emotional support to families caring for disabled children across the region.
Paul Hampson said: “Having represented families with children that have suffered life-changing and debilitating injuries, we know only too well the unique challenges they face.”
The firm has also recently launched a charitable foundation to support Positive Futures, Alder Hey Children’s Charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young and the Children’s Cancer Support Group during 2014.
The chosen charities were put forward and voted on by staff and the trustees. The money raised will be divided between them with specific fundraising activities arranged in partnership with each of the charities.
Paul Hampson added: "Over the years staff from Hampson Hughes Solicitors have raised tens of thousands of pounds for local charities. This was a fantastic achievement and something we really wanted to build on in 2014."
