Staff from our Saltergate, Chesterfield office baked 100 cupcakes to mark what would have been the hero’s 101st birthday.
The cakes were sold to raise funds for Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team (DAST).
Belinda Lancaster, Graysons’ partner, also took part in Chesterfield’s traditional May Day march in support of the charity.
She said: “We are always looking for ways to raise awareness and funds to support asbestos charities and Sir Tom Moore’s birthday seemed the perfect opportunity. I have to say a big thank you to all the staff that helped.”
Graysons has long-established links with Derbyshire support and campaign groups and has been successfully pursuing compensation claims for many years.
DAST is a registered charity for the relief of people who have suffered ill-health or injury, or have become disabled from their work with asbestos.
The UK has the world’s highest rates of mesothelioma – the cancer caused by exposure – with around 2,700 people each year being diagnosed, often decades after first coming into contact with asbestos.
Graysons recently pledged its support for #ActionMeso – a new national campaign bringing together patients, carers, charities, support groups, healthcare professionals, law firms, and many other organisations to campaign for more to be done around the dangers of asbestos in the UK.
The event raised £100 for DAST.
