Shentons support Family Fun Day

It’s not every day that the legal profession gets involved with fun fundraising activities, but a Winchester firm of solicitors is doing just that.

Shentons Solicitors and Mediators is supporting the NCT’s annual Family Fun Day in aid of Winchester B.A.B.I.E.S (Babies and Breastfeeding Information Encouragement Support).

The event is at Lanterns Children’s Centre in Bereweeke Road, on Sunday, April 27, from 11 am to 2.30 pm. It will be packed with fun activities, including a mobile farm and children’s craft activities, which will keep tots, pre-schoolers, parents and grandparents entertained!

Event Organiser Rachel Hardy said “we are delighted Shentons Solicitors and Mediators is supporting our B.A.B.I.E.S event again this year. Their longstanding support makes a big difference to us”.

“Mothers in our community greatly value the B.A.B.I.E.S service, which is entirely supported by fundraising activities and donations. It has been found to be highly effective at supporting mothers to breastfeed. Additionally, the emotional support provided by the service is highly valued by those who use it” added Rachel.

The weekly breastfeeding drop-in support group for any mum seeking support and information about breastfeeding is held at the Lanterns Children’s Centrein Bereweeke Road, Winchester and is open to any breastfeeding or pregnant woman in Winchester and the surrounding area, with no appointment necessary.

Elisabeth Pollard, Partner at Shentons Solicitors and Mediators said “this is our fifth year of supporting the B.A.B.I.E.S fun day event and we are pleased to be supporting this local charity”.

“Shentons Solicitors and Mediators is committed to supporting local families with all aspects of legal advice from wills to family law” she added.

“Parenthood is a very busy time of life and people often forget to write a Will which reflects their new family situation for example. We can help with this.The majority of Wills are not expensive and even a complicated Will is a good investment which buys peace of mind. We pride ourselves on our ability to deal with matters speedily and sympathetically for you.”
