Naomi Wilson was proud to attend the inaugural Spinal Injuries Association “Women in Spinal Cord Injury” awards ceremony last night at the Botanical Gardens, Birmingham, to accept an award on behalf of MASS (Motor Accident Solicitors Society) along with Craig Budsworth, the Chairman of the Society.
Naomi is the Manchester Regional Co-ordinator for MASS and the award was in recognition of amazing effort that MASS made last year to raise funds for the Spinal Injuries Association.
The Spinal Injuries Association is the leading national charity for spinal cord injured people, supporting those affected by spinal cord injuries and advising, educating and campaigning on all its aspects.
One particular success in the fundraising effort was last year’s MASS quiz night, which was organised by Naomi and Anya Murphy from NW Law – 22 teams entered the quiz and over 200 people attended, raising £4200.
Ex-footballer and now TV presenter Gary Lineker hosted proceedings and a great night was had by all. His wife Danielle, a huge supporter of the charity, was there and received an award for the charity which was inspired after her brother Kai suffered a spinal cord injury six years ago.
Naomi said, “I was so pleased to be asked to accept the award on behalf of MASS along with Craig. The evening recognised the efforts of women who work with people who have suffered serious life changing injuries, whether as a result of an accident or illness. I was truly humbled to hear about the pioneering work these women do and moved by the footage shown on the night of the stories of some of the people the SIA have helped. I am so proud to be involved in raising funds for the and look forward to continuing to do so in the future.”
