Local law firm raises money for league of friends Musgrove Park

Local charity, League of Friends Musgrove Park, has been presented with a cheque by law firm, Porter Dodson. 

Regular fundraising activities were held at the Taunton office, such as bake sales, bacon butty morning and Christmas jumper day, to raise money that was then match funded by the Partners to bring the total to £1000.

The League of Friends Musgrove Park Hospital is one of the oldest Taunton charities. It was formed by the Rotary Club of Taunton in 1959 with the two main aims of promoting voluntary service in the hospital and raising funds to provide better equipment over and above what the NHS could afford to provide.

Peter Renshaw, Chairman of the League of Friends Musgrove Park, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Porter Dodson for supporting us as their charity of the year. With the fundraising help of Porter Dodson, and other local businesses, we can continue to buy much needed equipment for the hospital.

Ben Hingley, Porter Dodson’s Taunton Office Head, commented: “I’m delighted the office has been able to raise this money to support the League of Friends Musgrove Park in their endeavors. It’s fantastic to see that their fundraising efforts are enhancing the quality of care in the hospital. I would like to thank everyone who took part in our activities throughout the year and kindly donated.”
