A children’s hospice is on course for a cracking Easter thanks to the generosity of a Dorset law firm.

Staff at Ellis Jones Solicitors have donated more than 40 chocolate Easter eggs to Julia’s House.

The charity provides practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening illness.

Ellis Jones’ offices in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs, Christchurch, Ringwood, Swanage and Wimborne took part in the Easter egg food bank.

Nigel Smith, Ellis Jones’ Managing Partner, said: “We had a great response from our team to the egg bank initiative.

“It’s a perfect opportunity to do something for the children at the hospice as well as the staff who do such an amazing job of taking care of them.”

Linda Schofield-Green, Corporate and Events Manager at Julia’s House, added: ““We really appreciate the generosity of all the Ellis Jones’ staff. We have family events all over the Easter holidays and the eggs will be very welcome.”

The Easter egg food bank is the latest initiative by Ellis Jones aimed at raising money for Julia’s House.

The law firm has previously donated £1,300 to the charity after organising various activities as well as taking part in the Jurassic Coast Challenge.

Ellis Jones has more than 160 staff including 14 partners and offers a wide range of services to individuals and businesses.
