A law firm has raised £1,000 for a Worcestershire hospice after organising a summer-long
series of charity events.

FBC Manby Bowdler handed the donation over to the Primrose Hospice at a breakfast
celebration to mark its first year in business in Redditch on October 15. The firm moved
into the town last year after the acquisition of the highly respected Kerwoods partnership.

To raise the money, staff took part in the Primrose Hospice corporate challenge, where
local businesses compete to raise the most money from a £50 starter grant. They hosted
activities including a cake sale, a floral themed dress down day, raffle, auction and photo
competition. There was also a staff barbecue, a floristry workshop, and a paint for
Primrose and prosecco event.

Staff at the Redditch office in Church Road led the fundraising initiative with workers from
the firm’s seven other offices in the West Midlands and Shropshire joining in.

Neil Lloyd, FBC Manby Bowdler’s Sales Director, said: “As people who live and work in the
area, we know, some of us first hand, the incredible work that is done by the Primrose
Hospice and were keen to get involved in the corporate challenge.

“We had great fun coming up with the activities and events and even more fun taking part.
We are delighted to have raised so much money for worthy cause.”

Hospice fundraiser Amy Flemming said: “Our work supporting people with life-limiting
conditions and their families is made possible by the kind and generous support of
businesses like FBC Manby Bowdler that go the extra mile to get behind initiatives like the
corporate challenge.

“We have to raise more than £1.75 million each year to provide our services to care for our
patients and their families so every penny counts.”
