We’ve been visiting Pembroke Dock Community School this week to help spread some festive cheer. We teamed with author, Wendy Hobbs, after we were contacted by eight-year-old pupil Elly Neville and her parents after one of our recent free medical negligence legal clinics in the town.
Elly and her family have through their ‘Elly’s Ward 10 Flag Appeal’ been fundraising for improved cancer services in Withybush Hospital and have raised over £167,500 to date.
So, after meeting Elly and her family, Howells wanted to acknowledge their fantastic achievements and Sue Edwards, Head of Personal Injury and Medical Negligence at Howells Solicitors contacted author Wendy and Elly’s school to arrange the Christmas treat.
During the visit, Wendy read extracts from her magical Christmas book to year four pupils, before gifting a copy of ‘Claudia’s Special Wish’ to each of them.
Wendy Hobbs is also an Ambassador for the Dreams and Wishes, an award-winning charity that helps the dreams and wishes of very sick children and their families come true. ‘Claudia’s Special Wish’ was written by Wendy for the charity and Howells Solicitors bought copies of the book for all Year 4 pupils at Pembroke Dock Community School so the charity as well as the pupils would benefit.
Commenting at the book reading in the school, Sue said:
“Elly is a very special eight year who has already made such a positive impact upon the lives of others. We wanted to show our support and after speaking with Elly’s parents, we decided that arranging the book reading for the pupils at her school would be a treat for them and donating a copy of ‘Claudia’s Special Wish’ would also benefit Dreams and Wishes, our firm’s nominated charity.”
