We are delighted that Paces has been chosen as the 2017 Charity of the Year by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.

Their staff in the firm’s Sheffield office voted overwhelmingly to support us during the course of the year to build on our strong existing relationship.

Previously, Irwin Mitchell have sponsored our welcome and information packs, fundraising coffee morning, training and information events and backed our children’s Christmas party.

Staff at the law firm have been so impressed by the hard work of children, dedication of parents and passion of staff at Paces that they wanted to expand their support which led to us securing their dedicated and exciting backing for 2017.

The decision, in our 20th anniversary year, is also fitting as it brings the story of Paces full circle.

In 1997, at the founding of Paces, then Irwin Mitchell partner Howard Culley offered his firm’s support by sponsoring fundraising events. Since then, others employed at the firm have served as Trustees over the years, including Angela Sandhal who was introduced to Paces when she was a Solicitor at the firm.

Irwin Mitchell will support Paces with a range of events and fundraising projects during the course of 2017.
