Ways You Can Support Us and Donate
We have a range of ways in which you can support us and make a donation which include:
Donate Whilst Shopping (Amazon, Easy Fundraising and eBay for Charity)
The success of our charity is entirely dependent on the generous financial support of companies and private sponsorship. We have been very fortunate in the last year to have had the support and sponsorship from various companies. This sponsorship has helped us as a charity to offer support to people suffering with CRPS and raise awareness of the condition amongst the general public, the medical fraternity and legal professionals. Corporate sponsorship is vital to our charity as it allows us to offer our main frontline services as well as assisting us in spreading awareness of CRPS and supporting all those affected by Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
If you would like to consider in being one of our corporate sponsors please contact the Chair of Burning Nights CRPS Support for further information and to receive our sponsorship information pack.
Currently we have 3 firms on our legal panel who all offer sponsorship to the charity. All of the legal firms have or are dealing with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) legal claims, whether they are personal injury claims or clinical negligence claims. To be on our legal panel there are a 3 main prerequisites that we consider:
- Each of the law firms in our legal panel must have dealt with CRPS claims and ideally regularly deal with CRPS claims,
- We ask that you send us some feedback from at least 2 CRPS clients
- We also ask that you give us a named solicitor and a direct contact phone number and/or email that we can give out. This is especially important if the legal firm is a large national firm as we don’t want to give a central number where the person who answers the phone doesn’t know or understand what CRPS is
If you would like to be a part of our legal panel please contact us for more details/information.
