Tommy's and JMW Solicitors

Working together to create more rainbows.

JMW Solicitors is a Manchester-based legal advice firm with a strong focus on giving back to their local community.

Tommy's is delighted that JMW Solicitors have chosen to support Tommy's as their Charity of the Year for 2019! Their generous fundraising will go towards the Tommy's Manchester Research Centre, which specialises in problems with the placenta and preventing stillbirth. The centre also runs specialist Rainbow Clinics for parents who are pregnant again following a stillbirth.

A rainbow baby is a baby born following a previous loss.

We are so grateful to JMW for their hard work to help us prevent heartbreak, and give more families a healthy, happy baby.

JMW told us:

"JMW Solicitors has been aware of the fantastic work Tommy’s does to support couples affected by stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth for several years. However just how vital Tommy’s work is really came to the fore when JMW represented clients who lost their first child to an avoidable stillbirth but went on to have two healthy children through Tommy’s Manchester Rainbow Clinic."

"JMW chose Tommy’s as one of its charities of the year for 2019 and we are hoping to raise thousands of pounds through a number of different fundraisers!"

 We can't wait to see what they do!
