Legal boost giving hope4mae

Mae Fox (4), from Cantley, has Cerebral Palsy which causes muscle stiffness and spasms leaving her unable to walk.
Her story came to the firm’s attention when one of our team found out about the fundraising efforts of Mae’s parents, Amy and Matt.
Straight away, the firm’s Charity Committee sprang into action and enlisted the help of band, The Seventy, to raise funds.
Mae has just had pioneering surgery in America and her family and friends raised over £80,000 to fund it, but they don’t yet have the money to pay for the expensive after-care that Mae will need to complete the treatment.
Jodie Cook, a lawyer in our Clinical Negligence Team, said: “We’ve set ourselves a target of £5,000 which we hope to raise for Mae’s charity.”
The Seventy have recorded a cover of Ho, Hey! That will go on sale Monday 17 February and all proceeds will go to the Hope4mae fund.
The band will then take time out from their hectic schedule to play live at The Wool Pack, Market Place, Doncaster on Saturday 22 March – entry by ticket only.
Lead singer with the Seventy, James Horne, said:  “It’s impossible not to be touched by Mae’s cause. From the very first moment we met her, we were determined to do all we could to help.”
Jodie added:  “Mae is a delightful little girl whose only wish is to walk.
“The commitment of her parent’s is absolutely staggering; they are determined that Mae will achieve her dream of being able to walk and we are only too happy to help support their amazing efforts.”
The band has donated their time and contributed to the CD production costs and The Wool Pack has given the venue free of charge so that all proceeds from the evening and the CD can go to Mae’s charity.
