Irwin Mitchell Pledge their support
Your Sheffield Steelkings are excited to announce Irwin Mitchell as a new team sponsor for the 2017 season.
Founded by Walter Irwin Mitchell in Sheffield in 1912 the small legal practice has grown to be the 11th largest law firm in the UK with 15 offices throughout the country.
Irwin Mitchell developed their Don’t Quit Do It campaign to help raise awareness to the many benefits that taking part in sport can have to help people recover from serious injuries and major traumas. As well as Irwin Mitchell helping local and national clubs, the campaign encourages people to either take part or support disability sports and clubs throughout the UK.
Irwin Mitchell already has an involvement in the sport of sledge hockey and has sponsorship ties with both the Peterborough and Manchester teams.
Associate solicitor Lisa Fairclough, specialises in personal injury and knows the role sport can play in helping her clients after a life changing experience. She said:
“Through our work with people affected by serious injury and disability, we’ve seen how sport can aid rehabilitation and help people turn their lives around. With our ‘Don’t Quit, Do It’ campaign, we want to encourage more people to get involved and enjoy these positive experiences.
“Be Part Of It, is about bringing the people together that make disability sport happen and showing, through pledges, how they make it possible. We’re proud to support the Sheffield Steelkings and clubs and charities up and down the country, to help raise awareness and make it easier for a new audience to take part.
“Para ice hockey is a fast-paced, exciting game and once you watch it live, it’s easy to see why it’s such a unique and special sport.”
Why don’t you join the campaign and pledge your support? Your pledge can be something you already do, something you want to do or something you never thought you could do. For every pledge the firm receives, they are donating £1 to the clubs and charities that make disability sport possible.
