Convey Law raised funds through the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto to purchase a specially adapted recumbent bicycle for little Evan Hale. Evan suffers from cerebral palsy, which affects his balance and mobility. His two older brothers are very active and ride their bikes at every opportunity. Until now Evan has not been able to join them.
Ellie Richards, daughter of the company’s Legal Director, is a school friend of Evan’s. The pair recently discussed the charitable fundraising that Convey Law do through the Conveyancing Foundation and that they often look to assist with charitable causes wherever possible. Following this brief chat between 11 year olds, Evan’s mother Rachel and the charity team at Convey Law started discussing how they could help make this dream come true.
The cost of the trike (£3,000.00) was a huge barrier. Newport based property lawyers Convey Law, who undertake conveyancing transactions for clients throughout the whole of England and Wales, raised the money through the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto, which invites clients to partake in a monthly prize draw where the winner receives £500 towards their legal fees. The Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto helps conveyancers to raise funds for charities of their choosing – with over £450,000 being raised for charity in recent years!
Convey Law presented Evan with his new trike on the 10th May, as you can see from the photos, Evan was one very happy little boy. His new set of wheels has given Evan his independence – to enjoy what he loves, whilst also helping to develop his muscles and co-ordination.
Evan’s mum commented:
“Evan is on top of the world. It was a fabulous day for both of us! We took him out after school yesterday and to watch him zip off on his own is beyond amazing. You have given him the gift of independence and for that we are both extremely grateful.”
Convey Law Legal Director and Trustee of the Conveyancing Foundation, Gareth Richards stated:
“This is exactly what the Conveyancing Foundation was designed to do – to help charities and those that need assistance to get on and enjoy their lives. The staff and clients of Convey Law should be very proud of their contribution in enriching young Evan’s life. To see Evan’s face light up when he received his specially adapted trike was truly amazing and his shear enjoyment was completely infectious! Well done to you all and thank you.”
