City solicitors raise £6,400 for Sheffield children’s charity

Almost £6,400 has been raised for Create a Dream Foundation (CADF), the Sheffield-based children’s charity, by city solicitors Wake Smith.

Set up in 2017, the charity helps make the dreams of serious or terminally ill children in Sheffield and South Yorkshire come true by funding gifts and experiences.

The donation means in the last six years Wake Smith has raised £36,653.79 for South Yorkshire charities.

Fundraising events in the last year for CADF have included dress down days, a staff games night, running the Sheffield 10k, Great British Bake Off-style cake sales, sweepstakes, competitions, a tuck shop, lunch club raffles and a quiz night.

“This fantastic donation will really make a difference, and will help families make wonderful and long-lasting memories by making their child’s dreams come true,” said CADF founder and charity trustee Adam Ainger.

“We use our resources to make these children’s dreams a reality, whether it is visiting their favourite place, receiving their dream toy, meeting their hero, or having an experience that they could only dream of. No matter the size of the dream, we will do what we can to make it come true.”

Kate Lax, solicitor at Wake Smith and charitable board member, said: “Employees are invited to nominate a local charity with particular importance to them and this year it was Create A Dream Foundation.

“Even though we have had the fundraising cut short with COVID-19, the total raised by employees, friends and clients of Wake Smith is fantastic.

“The Charity Board would like say a massive thank you to everyone who donated and organised events and for their continued support.”
