Charity of the Year partnership

13th January 2016

Little Rosie Day may not know it yet, but one day soon she will need a new heart. Rosie, aged two, was diagnosed last year with restrictive cardiomyopathy, and her mum, Sara and dad Barry have been told that her heart is failing and she will need a transplant sooner rather than later.

Sara contacted Cardiomyopathy UK for help and advice after Rosie’s diagnosis in July 2015, and was so
impressed with the support that she received that she decided to nominate us as her company’s charity of the year.  

Mayer Brown LLP, a legal firm based in London chooses one charity to support over a two year period. Despite stiff competition Cardiomyopathy UK was delighted to be chosen as the company’s charity partner for 2016-2017. 

Chief executive Joel Rose said “We are thrilled to have been chosen as Mayer Brown’s charity partner. The partnership is a really big deal for the charity, having a major organisation like Mayer Brown supporting our work will not only enable us to grow services but will also encourage other organisations to support us too”.

Over the next two years the staff of Mayer Brown LLP will all be joining together to help raise funds to support Rosie and other children like her.  Taking on challenges like bike rides and abseiling challenges as well as pancake parties and quizzes, all of the staff are committed to raising funds and getting involved to support the charity.
