Belfast law firm Edwards & Co pulls together to raise £60,000

By Staff Reporter

Belfast law firm Edwards & Co has been congratulated after raising £60,000 for Bowel Cancer UK.

The firm was prompted to fundraise for the charity after the wife of a colleague died of the illness.

And a close friend of senior partner Dorcas Crawford also died of bowel cancer in her forties.

The practice's 30 staff have succeeded in raising £60,000 for the charity over just two-and-a-half years.

Ms Crawford said: "The death of my close friend to bowel cancer was very much the inspiration for our fundraising for the charity.

"Having attended a Bowel Cancer UK awareness talk in our office, our staff became conscious of the devastating effects of this disease on the entire community of Northern Ireland."
