A Nottingham law firm has given a helping hand after thieves stole equipment from a voluntary group helping the region’s deaf.
Nottinghamshire Deaf Society suffered two break-ins at its headquarters in Nottingham city centre on Thursday, March 8 and then again on the following Monday.
A laptop, iphone and ipad were taken, and the damage and loss valued at well over £1,000.
However, upon hearing the news Nottingham Family Law stepped in and has made a donation of £300 plus a laptop and four iphones.
“So much good work is involved in helping those with hearing issues across Nottinghamshire and this voluntary group is a real community home from home for so many,” said Amanda Brown, Director of Family Law Group. “We felt we had to help.”
Mark Butterworth, Treasurer of Nottinghamshire Deaf Society, thanked Nottingham Family Law and added that the break in had shown how so many good people were there to rally around for the society.
“The donation from Notttingham Family Law helped us get going straight away, and we have also had support from fellow deaf societies in Derby and Birmingham, and others beside,” he said. “It really has helped galvanise us.”
“It is heartening to know that there are so many good people who are ready to take positive action and setbacks like this cannot stop the good work that Nottinghamshire Deaf Society do.”
