Staff at Liverpool-based law firm MSB Solicitors helped raise funds and show support throughout World Autism Awareness Week with a range of activities.
Team members wrapped up warm and braved wet weather for a lunchtime sponsored walk to boost donations for the charity Autism Together, which provides services and support to people with autism and their families.
At other points during the week, MSB employees dressed in blue during Autism Awareness Day and rounded off their efforts with some sweet treats as a cake sale took place, collecting further cash for the Wirral-based cause.
Meanwhile the firm, which united employees from all three of its offices in Liverpool city centre, Allerton and Wavertree to show support, also provided autism refresher training for members of staff.
Emma Palmer, a partner in MSB’s family department and the disabilities champion within the firm’s equalities committee, says: “We have a lot of people within MSB as well as clients and contacts who are affected by autism so it’s something that means a lot to us.
“The reaction we’ve had to our [World Autism Awareness Week campaign] both within MSB and externally has been greater than we could have imagined.”
