Battens Charitable Trust

24 January 2019

Michelle Green and Hannah Brown from Battens Solicitors have presented a cheque for £500 from the Battens Charitable Trust to Mesothelioma UK, a specialist resource centre, specifically for the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma. The charity is dedicated to providing specialist information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.

Michelle Green of Battens Personal Injury and Occupational Disease department said:

“The work undertaken by Mesothelioma UK is vital in providing medical and emotional support and advice both to people suffering from this illness and to their families. I was very pleased to be able to present this cheque on behalf of Battens Charitable Trust to such a worthy a cause. ”

Battens Charitable Trust, which was established by Battens Solicitors, has donated more than £250,000 to charities and causes in and around Somerset and Dorset since it was first founded in 1985. Groups to have benefitted from its funding include schools, hospitals, children and youth sports groups, disability groups and hospices; yet it is not widely known that The Trust relies on the generous donations of local people to enable it to support these key community causes.

If you would like to make a donation or leave a legacy to Battens Charitable Trust, please contact the Trust team by emailing or by calling 01935 846000.
