Joes Myers has helped to raise £12,500 for a charity which enhances the quality of life for thousands of people with sight loss and wide-ranging disabilities.

Henshaws Beer Festival was an enormous success for the charity which provides vital assistance to over 7,000 service users.

They include those who are registered blind or disabled along with young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties, sensory impairments, and other physical disabilities.

Jones Myers partnership with Henshaws chimes with the firm’s long-standing and caring ethos of giving back and helping to make a difference.

The practice’s ‘giving back’ initiatives have included providing key materials for Henshaws’ disabled Art Makers to continue achieving their potential.

Gemma Young, Henshaws Fundraising Development Manager, said:  “More than 850 visitors attended the Beer Festival at our Arts & Crafts Centre which raised over £12,000. An enormous ‘thank you’ to our valuable sponsors including Jones Myers – and everyone who contributed to, and attended, the successful event.

“We rely heavily on generous donations and gifts-in kind from wide-ranging sources including local businesses and are delighted with Jones Myers’ ongoing commitment to help us achieve our goals. ”

Jones Myers Partner, Andrew Fox, said: “Henshaws consistently goes above and beyond to ensure its service users lead independent and fulfilling lives because of the relentless support, advice, and training it provides.

“We have seen at first-hand how the charity enhances the lives of its passionate and talented Art Makers, helping them to develop their skills and confidence and we look forward to a long-lasting partnership with Gemma and the team.”
