Lincolnshire & regional law firm Wilkin Chapman has raised more than £1000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, after choosing the charity as the beneficiary of its fundraising efforts. 

The firm’s football team took part in a charity football tournament for local law firms, banks and accountants in Lincoln, organised by HSBC. Wilkin Chapman won the tournament and donated the money raised to the charity.

The firm also took part in last year’s inaugural Great Grimsby 10k in 2016 with its team donating half of their funds raised to the charity.

The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity focused on MND care, research and campaigning. The organisation works to provide information and support alongside fighting for improved services for victims of the disease.

Daphne Oxford from the Motor Neurone Disease Association attended the cheque presentation at Wilkin Chapman’s offices in Lincoln.  Accepting the cheque, she said: “On behalf of the Lincolnshire Group of the Motor Neurone Disease Association, I offer our heartfelt thanks to all who took part in this fund raising activity. £1,170.00 is a huge amount of money to raise. Every penny is spent on helping the victims of this dreadful illness who live in Lincolnshire.”

Andrew Holt, partner at Wilkin Chapman, who leads the Lincoln office and helped lead the fundraising efforts, said: “Raising money for MND gave the team that extra competitive edge when we needed it! MND is a charity close to our hearts. We are delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile cause.”
