Forbes Solicitors Launches Charitable Foundation With £6,000 Grant To Help Little Isaac


The Forbes Foundation became a registered charity on the 11th January 2019 and is funded by staff joining forces to organise and take part in fundraising events, both internally and with support from family, friends, clients and professional contacts across the North of England.



Forbes Solicitors Launches Charitable Foundation With £6,000 Grant To Help Little Isaac

Forbes Solicitors has launched its own charitable foundation to help local people and provide vital grants to good causes across the UK.

The Forbes Foundation ’s launch was marked with a £6,000 grant to little Isaac Wood, aged one from Darwen, who was born with the muscle wasting disease spinal muscular atrophy type 1.

The money will help towards the fundraising his mum Kerry is currently undertaking to fund an electric wheelchair to help Isaac get about when he is older.

Forbes Solicitors CEO Oliver Burton said: “The Forbes Foundation started with the will to make a difference and it has been embraced by the amazing team of people we have here at Forbes.

“The Foundation provides financial support to children, and their families, who are in need, by reason of ill health, disability, and/or financial hardship within England and Wales, but predominantly the North of England, by providing facilities, equipment and monetary grants.

“When we heard about little Isaac and the amazing progress he is making we wanted to do something to help to support him and his amazing family.

“This is exactly why we set up the Foundation – to make a difference to people’s lives – and we are always looking for ideas to raise funds in order to help fulfil that goal.”

Isaac’s condition means that the signal from his spine to his muscles is blocked. He has been undergoing revolutionary drug treatment since he was three weeks old and he can now move his arms and legs and sit up. 

The NHS has provided a supported seat and walking aid to help his bones develop properly as well as a bath seat.

But additional things that make day to day life easier, such as wheelchairs, are not provided.

His mum Kerry said: “I’d like to say a massive thankyou to the Forbes Foundation and everyone at Forbes for everything they have done. It is going to have a massive impact on Isaac’s life and all the time and effort people have put in is just so overwhelming.”
