A LAW firm has opted to give support to St Michael’s Hospice.

Professional services group Gateley has chosen the hospice as its charity partner for the next year, with all fundraising efforts going towards helping the charity care for people with life-limiting illnesses.

Ruth Armstrong, head of corporate social responsibility at Gateley, said: “Every year our staff nominate the charities they care about and everyone within the business is able to vote.

“St. Michael’s Hospice was selected as charity of the year and it is a great feeling to know we are going to be able to help those in need of specialised palliative care.”
