This month, our Director and Head of the Serious Injury Team, Mark Belfield had the pleasure of attending a fantastic evening at a recent fundraising event hosted by the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA).
The amazing venue for the evening was the Williams Conference Centre (owned by the Williams Formula 1 team) in Oxfordshire, and you might expect for an evening at a Formula 1 team, there were plenty of cars and stars on show.
The locale for the dinner itself was rather unique, with tables surrounded by millions and millions of pounds’ worth of Williams F1 cars dating back to the 1970’s.
Following the dinner, a silent auction was held, and Mark got the opportunity to meet Formula 1 star and Williams driver, Felipe Massa.
Mark commented on how humbling and inspiring the event was to spend an evening in the company of those having suffered spinal cord injury and most importantly how the support of the SIA had had such an impact on helping them to rehabilitate.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Spinal Injuries Association, they are a national organisation that supports all those who are affected by spinal injuries, including the family and friends of the victims.
They fully support victims of spinal injuries and carry out fantastic work that enables victims to live full and independent lives.
Our specialist spinal injury team at Thorneycroft are experienced and professional, meaning that for any claim, we ensure the maximum level of compensation is received.
