Disabled employees should not be denied the ability to engage in strategies and mechanisms which help to cope with the effects of their condition simply because they inconvenience other staff. Paul Burton looks at a recent case where disability discrimination was disputed.
Frettens were delighted to once again sponsor the The Churchill Foundation annual charity fashion show at The Furlong Centre in Ringwood.
Solicitors from the firm's Ringwood office were incredible sports as they donned designer outfits and took to the catwalk to raise money for a fantastic cause.
£2,337 raised for Cash 4 Kids
Ticket sales, donations, and a raffle with some great prizes donated by local companies raised £2,377.00, all of which will buy gifts for disadvantaged children this Christmas, through Wave 105's Cash for Kids initiative.
The evening started with prosecco and canapes, followed by an introduction from Tony Ring, Mayor of Ringwood, and a talk from Wave 105's Charity ambassadors. Members of the teams from Frettens and Churchill were on hand to ensure that patrons' prosecco glasses never ran dry as they enjoyed the show, music, and the discounted shopping that followed into the evening.
Michelle Hayter, Lee Young, Karen Edwards, Ben Cobb and Lauren Smallwood all looked great and really got into the spirit of the evening, which you will no doubt see from the pictures. We can assure you that their legal advice is better than some of their questionable dance moves.

Partner and Head of the Ringwood Office, Michelle Hayter, said "We love supporting this event. There's always a great community feel around it that is so typical of Ringwood, and the money raised goes to a great charity."
Huge thanks to our friends at The Churchill Foundation and The Furlong, who really are a driving force behind this great event.
