Volunteers from We Fight Any Claim at the Follow Your Dreams ball

We Fight Any Claim have for some months been assisting their staff in carrying out Acts of Kindness within the local community.

Within working hours, members of staff at WFAC have been able to carry out an Act of Kindness ranging from bucket collections for various charities, delivering doughnuts to local police stations and nursing homes and providing a helping hand at a local animal shelter. 

As a business who are committed to fundraising each week for various charities, the idea behind the Nominated Acts of Kindness scheme is to not only provide financial aid, but also provide support through offering their time. Several charities have been approached by the company with the offer of time, rather than money.

One of many charities who were keen to receive a helping hand was Follow your Dreams, a charity that inspires children and young people with disabilities to follow their dreams. During early November, five staff members Liam Brinton, Jack Evans, Katie Edwards, Adam Clark and Amber Poole visited a local supermarket in Newport Retail Park and spent the afternoon bag packing for the charity.

 As part of their annual fundraising efforts, the charity, whose patron is Mike Phillips, organise a charity ball. This year saw many supporters attend what turned out to be a spectacular evening of fundraising, celebrations and entertainment. With such a major event, the charity needed volunteers on the evening to provide a helping hand. Volunteers helped with welcoming guests, photography, social media, raffle sales and auction.

In total 11 staff members from We Fight Any Claim spent the evening helping the charity to ensure their #DreamBall was a success. In total a fantastic £15,000 was raised after many messages of support and encouragement from celebrities, including the likes of Piers Morgan, Shane Williams and Vinnie Jones. Money raised will now help children and young people with learning disabilities follow their dreams and help recognise their potential.
