Back to the future as Higgs supports WeLoveCarers summer ball

Lawyers from Higgs’ Clinical Negligence team took a step back in time on Friday 13 July to support local charity, We Love Carers at its retro Summer Ball.

The ‘80s versus 90s’ themed ball was held at The Village in Dudley and was attended by more than 150 people who between them helped to raise an incredible £7,300 for the charity.

“It was a fantastic night,” comments Clare Langford, a Partner in Higgs Clinical Negligence team. “We are committed to supporting WeLoveCarers as we have seen first-hand how difficult life can be for a carer of an injured family member. The summer ball was a great way for us to show our support and help raise much needed funds for the charity. “

The Summer Ball featured retro cocktails, a charity auction and a fundraising raffle before guests enjoyed a three course dinner. The evening concluded with dancing until the early hours to 80s and 90s classic tunes.

Rachael Gardener CEO at WeLoveCarers said: “This was a great way for everyone involved with the organisation to get together and let their hair down whilst raising much needed funds.

“Caring for a loved one can affect carers financially, physically and mentally and WeLoveCarers is run for carers by carers providing services carers want and need, not services providers think they want. The support of Higgs & Sons has been invaluable to us and we are looking forward to continuing our work with Higgs to provide support to carers across the borough.”

WeLoveCarers provides thousands of unpaid carers information, advice and the support they need to take control of their lives and live it to the maximum. It runs the largest specialist play sessions in the area for children with disabilities.

Clare Langford concludes: “The work WeLoveCarers undertakes is invaluable in providing free support and guidance and we are delighted to be working with them to help offer this valuable service to families throughout Dudley.”
