THE Christie Charitable Fund received almost £47,000 in 2018 from Chafes Hague Lambert Solicitors.

The firm has offices in Knutsford, Wilmslow and Alderley Edge, and received a special thankyou from the team at The Christie.

The donations were made up from dormant funds to help fund vital advancements in the fight against cancer.

Practice manager Caroline Calverley said: “We explore every possible way of ensuring the money is given to the rightful owners, but when our leads are exhausted, with the approval of the Solicitors Regulation Authority we are delighted to give this money to The Christie.

“We have been donating these funds since 2012 and have now donated more than £78,000.

“It is always an honour to support such a worthwhile charity and we are always delighted to do this for The Christie because so many of our employees’ lives have been touched by their amazing effort and support.”

Danielle Carney of The Christie said: “We are grateful that Chafes Hague Lambert continue to pursue the option of donating these dormant funds to The Christie.

“These types of donations enable us to carry out vital, innovative, exciting new work which directly benefits people affected by cancer, their families, our staff and the local community.”
