STAFF at a Chester law firm put on their dancing shoes and stepped up their game to raise more than £1,000 for a cancer charity.

The team at Oliver & Co Solicitors held the charity gig in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday, November 1.

Their decorating team ensured the venue looked tip top, with green bunting and balloons as far as the eye could see.

The band, Eskimo Spies, was headed by the firm's very own industrial disease specialist solicitor James Cameron.

Playing two sets of amazing songs, there was something for everyone, from Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ to Blur’s ‘Parklife’ and U2’s ‘With or Without You’.

The dance floor was full and everyone had a fantastic night, despite the miserable weather outside!

In addition to ticket sales, there was a raffle to boost funds.

Oliver & Co Solicitors would like to say a huge thank you to all those who donated prizes and bought tickets. The grand total raised was £1,026, which will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan is a cause very close to the heart of the industrial disease team, which deals with asbestos disease claims and many of their clients suffer with the incurable asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma.

Macmillan provides support to people suffering with any kind of cancer and provides physical, financial and emotional support to Oliver & Co's clients and their families.

Head of the firm's industrial disease team Helena Cameron was extremely pleased with how the event went.

She said: “After much planning from our dedicated team the night went off with a bang. We really appreciate the support given by ticket sales, raffle ticket purchases and volunteering time.

"The band were excellent as always, giving up their own time to perform and filling the dancefloor with lots of well-known hits. We are now looking forward to next year’s event!”
