Taylor&Emmet Shows Support for Sepsis Campaigners

10th November 2020

Sheffield solicitors, Taylor&Emmet LLP, are backing a local team’s bid to raise funds and awareness of the life-threatening condition, sepsis.

The firm’s contentious probate department has donated £1,000 to TeamDanielHallam’s, Cycle4Sepsis challenge, helping it to become one of the UK Sepsis Trust’s top ten fundraisers.

Taylor&Emmet client, Ayesha Heaton, and her 30-strong team raised more than £6,700 by cycling as many miles as possible during September, in memory of her partner, Daniel Hallam, who died after developing sepsis in 2018. The annual Cycle4Sepsis event normally consists of a London to Brighton bike ride, but due to Covid restrictions, it was held virtually this year.

Alex Watkinson, Taylor&Emmet’s head of contentious probate, said: “Ayesha is doing a fantastic job of raising awareness for the UK Sepsis Trust and it was a pleasure to support her team’s latest fundraiser by making this donation. She is hugely passionate about ensuring the public knows just how deadly the condition can be and her dedication to the cause is inspiring.”

The UK Sepsis Trust runs public awareness campaigns and delivers support groups. The condition is an acute bodily reaction to infection and kills more people each year than breast, bowel and prostate cancer collectively. The symptoms include, slurred speech or confusion, extreme shivering or muscle pain, severe breathlessness and mottled or discoloured skin.
