Morecrofts Solicitors has announced child bereavement organisation Love, Jasmine as its new charity partner.
Love, Jasmine was founded by Rob and Kathy Lapsley following the death of their six-year-old daughter Jasmine, who died after choking on a grape while on a family holiday.
Their own experiences following her death led them to create a charity that supports the needs of grieving parents, offering services including counselling, peer support and practical help.
The new partnership with Morecrofts was announced at the firm’s annual Ladies Evening, held this year at One Fine Day in Liverpool. The event was attended by almost 100 women from across the Liverpool City Region business community.
It was also announced on the evening that Morecrofts had raised more than £10,000 for its latest annual charity partner, Freshfields Animal Rescue, over the past year.
Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said:
“Each year, staff across the Morecrofts team are asked to nominate and then vote for their chosen charity.
“Invariably, we select a local organisation that is doing important work in the community, and Love, Jasmine certainly fits that mould.
“The tragic story behind its foundation and the crucial work it does with families at an incredibly painful time make it a truly worthwhile candidate for our support and we look forward to raising plenty of funds and awareness for the charity over the next 12 months.
“As is tradition, we launched our new partnership at our Ladies Evening, providing an excellent first opportunity for the charity to gain exposure among the business community, and it was wonderful to welcome so many friendly and familiar faces to the event.”
