The sound of music hits the right note for Shropshire charity
A carol service organised by a Shropshire law firm has raised £500 for Severn Hospice.
Around 150 clients, representatives from local businesses and other organisations joined staff from FBC Manby Bowdler at its annual service in Shrewsbury School’s Chapel on December 8.
FBC Manby Bowdler organises the event every year to mark the start of the festive season and support a local charity. The firm has offices in Shrewsbury, Telford and Bridgnorth with lawyers from its Wolverhampton offices also joining in the festivities.
The firm’s staff choir played a starring role, leading the singing during the service. The 20-strong choir is made up of partners, solicitors, paralegals and administrative and support staff and meets regularly.
Senior Partner Niall Blackie said: “We were delighted to have so many clients, staff and their families joining us for this festive occasion. The carol service is one of the highlights in the FBC Manby Bowdler calendar and marks the end of a very successful year for the firm.
“We would like to thank everyone for their support of Severn Hospice, which does such great work supporting people with life limiting illnesses and their families.”
