The lucky winner of the prize, accountant Mike Henley based at Mitchell Charlesworth’s Warrington office said “I still can’t believe I won given the popularity of the raffle. What a nice end to the year - winning a brand new I-pad whilst supporting Alder Hey’s great work.”

Managing Partner Paul Wainwright said “We would like to thank all of our employees across the practice for their generosity.”

“Alder Hey holds a special place in the hearts of people in the North West.  It is an important part of the neighbourhood and so we’re delighted to have raised this money for such a treasured charity.”

Alder Hey Children's Charity are seeking to raise £30m for life-saving medical equipment, research and facilities to make the brand new Alder Hey in the Park a truly world-leading hospital for families across the UK when it opens later this year. Alder Hey is one of the biggest children's hospital’s in Europe, seeing over 275,000 children and young people each year.
