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 extremely proud to be main sponsors of this great event, hosted by The Churchill Foundation, the firm's Ringwood charity of the year, at The Furlong Centre in Ringwood on Thursday 8th November.
With free-flowing prosecco, delicious appetisers and fab designer threads on display, it really was the perfect recipe for a fantastic night, and it definitely didn’t disappoint.
Ticket sales, donations, and a raffle with some great prizes donated by local companies raised over £3,000 on the night for a great local charity, The Churchill Foundation, working with Wave 105’s Cash for Kids.
Michelle Hayter, Karen Edwards, Sarah Leach and Lily Benson from our new Ringwood office showed that they were more than just great lawyers, strutting their stuff on the catwalk for this great community cause. We think you’ll all agree they are great sports and all looked incredible!
Other members of the team were on hand to make sure nibbles were always close at hand and prosecco glasses remained filled. The volunteer models from Frettens and Churchill Retirement showcased the season’s latest fashions from Crew Clothing, Fat Face, Gerry Weber, Hobbs, Joules, Oasis and Phase Eight. All of the stores opened late into the evening and offered exclusive savings to attendees.
Michelle Hayter, Partner of the firm and Head of Dispute Resolution and the Ringwood Team, says “We really enjoy these events; not just for the posh togs, bubbles and yummy food, but because we get to give something back to our new community. Since opening our new Ringwood office only four months ago, we have been made to feel extremely welcome and the team absolutely love it here!”
