There’s nothing the team at Merrick Solicitors like more than getting stuck in to help a worthwhile cause.

The family law team got right behind the Epilepsy Society’s annual #PurpleDay fund-raiser which encourages people to be ‘the conversation starter and change lives’.

They organised a cake sale at their Manchester city centre base in St George’s House with the team demonstrating their baking skills - and raffling a fabulous Hey Little Cupcake flower bouquet.

There was great support throughout the building and beyond as they raised a fantastic £357 for the charity.

The team decided to help after legal assistant Sophie Hughes talked candidly about her experience of epilepsy.

Sophie said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed by the support. Our target was to raise £100 and we tripled that. It is amazing what you can do in such a short space of time.

“Thank you all so much and a special thank you to all my colleagues who spent their evening baking and finding purple items of clothing. It is much appreciated.”
