Partners and staff from Royds Withy King’s Bath offices recently put on their best orange outfits and took part in an orange-themed bake off and cake sale to show their support for a global awareness campaign organised locally by CRPS UK – the country’s first charity to raise awareness and provide support to people suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
The office festivities took place to mark the fourth annual Colour the World Orange Day which also saw famous buildings, bridges and landmarks across the world illuminated in orange in support of CRPS.
CRPS UK is one of the causes which Royds Withy King are particularly close to, having helped the support group to become a registered charity as well as providing ongoing support to clients who have acquired the debilitating neurological condition which leaves them in constant and severe pain.
Louise Hart, partner in Royds Withy King’s Personal Injury team in Bath and one of very few lawyers to specialise in CRPS-related legal claims, said: “Colour the World Orange Day is a great initiative that raises awareness of this little-understood condition. I’m grateful to everyone who got involved to support this. The orange outfits were definitely a talking point and the cake sale, to raise funds for the charity, was very popular.”
