Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


LEADING Leicester-based law firm Nelsons Solicitors has pledged further support to its chosen charity of the year Wishes 4 Kids.

The charity’s mascot, Russ the Wish Kid, will be sponsored by Nelsons throughout 2018 while staff at the law firm’s Leicester office continue to raise money for the organisation through various fundraising events.

Danielle Young, clinical negligence solicitor at Nelsons, who coordinates the Leicester office’s charity events, said:

“We are delighted to be supporting Wishes 4 Kids and through the additional support we’ve been able to provide, helping them to grant even more wishes. When we found out about the mascot sponsorship, it was an opportunity we couldn’t say no to.

“It is important for us at Nelsons to support local causes which make real differences to the lives of others and that we help raise awareness of this small, but incredible charity that works so hard for children in the area.”

Wishes 4 Kids has already granted hundreds of wishes for children and youngsters under 18 in the county who are life limited, terminally ill, have experienced life-changing physical or emotional traumas, have suffered major abuse or are diagnosed as HIV positive.

Chris Rhodes, charity manager at Wishes 4 Kids, said:

“Nelsons’ sponsorship is an enormous help and we cannot thank the team enough. The mascot is a wonderful addition to the Wishes 4 Kids family and we are able to take him out to all of our events to raise awareness of the charity.

“Russ the Wish Kid will be going along to all the events we arrange and are invited to through the year. He is a huge presence and the children love having their photograph taken with him.

“Russ was named after our founder Russell, who retired last year. He didn’t want a big fuss but we wanted to ensure his legacy lived on so we decided to name our first mascot after him. We rely on donations so we’d be happy to speak to other local businesses about getting involved with fundraising for Wishes 4 Kids.”
