Irwin Mitchell is to invest in the future of children with Cerebral Palsy and motor disorders in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and across the UK, by supporting key areas of the new home for Paces School.

The leading law firm, who have been huge supporters of the charity over many years, are to sponsor the reception and library area and the outreach classroom at Thorncliffe Hall, which was announced earlier this month as the new base for the special school.

The donation will help Paces in their mission to support more children with life-changing skills – such as sitting, standing, walking, speaking, communication and self-care – using conductive education.

Julie Booth, head of fundraising at Paces, said: “Paces School is already a special place where our children have fun, develop friendships and feel like they belong, and our move to Thorncliffe Hall will allow us to support more young people, and provide the best possible facilities for our amazing pupils.

“We can’t thank Irwin Mitchell enough for their support of our new base and the hugely important reception, library area and outreach classroom.

The firm and its staff have been some of our biggest supporters and this investment is a testament to the importance they place on improving the community they are part of. We can’t wait to see the spaces they’re sponsoring in action in the years to come.”

Julianne Moore, a Partner from Irwin Mitchell, who represents children with conditions including Cerebral Palsy, said: “We are incredibly proud to be longstanding supporters of Paces School and the wonderful work they do.

“Through our work helping children and their families with complex and ongoing healthcare needs we know only too well how much of a difference the fantastic support and learning from Paces makes to their development and how much families rely on the school.

“We are delighted to be part of their new home and look forward to continuing to support them on their journey, making a real positive difference to the lives of pupils.”
