MORECROFTS headline sponsored the Sapphire Charity Ball held by Sefton Women’s and Children’s Aid (SWACA) on 19th October.
The event, which took place at The Park Hotel, saw 150 people gather for dinner and entertainment to celebrate SWACA’s milestone of 45 year offering their service.
Since 1975, Sefton Women’s and Children’s Aid (SWACA) has been providing specialist domestic abuse support services to the women, children and young people of Sefton who are experiencing, or have been affected by, domestic abuse. Last year, SWACA received over 2000 requests for support from the local area.
An amazing £8,500 was raised on the evening.
Partner at Morecrofts, and head of the firm’s domestic violence team, Julie Waring said:
We were delighted to support this event. I have seen first hand how hard the team at SWACA work to assist so many women and children, and the ball was a fantastic way of celebrating such a milestone, as well as raising vital funds.
Charles Millett, who is a partner at Morecrofts and trustee of SWACA added:
Having worked with this charity for 30 years, Morecrofts see what amazing work they do. Huge congratulations to everyone from SWACA who worked to put on such a great event.
SWACA CEO Neil Frackelton said:
As well as raising money, we made some excellent new contacts at the ball. I’d like to thank Morecrofts for their continued support with the charity; not only for the financial contribution, but for the free legal clinics and legal advice they give to us and our Service Users.
