More support for Paces pupils as law firm continues support of special school

Leading law firm Irwin Mitchell is to help children with Cerebral Palsy and motor disorders at Paces School by buying three new chairs that provide postural support to young people.

The business has agreed to purchase the Heathfield Chairs for the School’s planned new home at Thorncliffe Hall.

They play an important role in the conductive education, the pioneering approach taken by Paces which allows the young people to reach their potential through life-changing skills, such as sitting, standing, walking, speaking, communication and self-care.

Irwin Mitchell has been huge supporters of the charity over many years and is proud to continue its relationship with Paces at an exciting time.

Julianne Moore, an expert medical negligence lawyer and partner at Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office, said:

“Irwin Mitchell is proud to be part of the community and to be able to support Paces and the amazing work they do giving opportunities for children to reach their potential.

“Through our work in supporting families affected by issues such as birth injury, and our partnership with Paces, we know how important these Heathfield Chairs are and the benefits they bring for young people. We can’t wait to see them in use at the school’s new home at Thorncliffe Hall.”

Julie Booth, Head of Fundraising at Paces, said:

“We would not be able to do what we do at Paces without the generosity of businesses like Irwin Mitchell and their investment in these new Heathfield Chairs will make a real difference to the lives of our children we prepare to move to our new home.

“Huge thanks from all of us to their entire team in Sheffield and across the UK for their continued support of our efforts to support more young people, and provide the best possible facilities for our amazing pupils.”
