Mesothelioma UK is dedicated to providing specialist information, support and education to improve treatment and care for all mesothelioma victims in the UK. The charity also ensures that specialist mesothelioma nursing is available for those who need it, by integrating into NHS front line services.

Thompsons’ offices across England and Wales will be dressing down at work and running other fundraising activities on the day to support the charity. Donations will go to Mesothelioma UK’s resource centre and national helpline for mesothelioma victims and their loved ones, providing details of local support groups, advice on benefits and information regarding clinical trials.

As a free, specialist service, Mesothelioma UK aims to raise awareness and provide vital support to all of those affected by the disease but is reliant on donations to keep their valuable work going.

Asbestos-disease specialists at Thompsons have been providing support and fighting hard to secure compensation for individuals and their families affected by this disease since running the first ever successful asbestos case in 1972. The firm is closely connected to the charity at a national and local level, with teams seeing first-hand the difficulties faced by individuals who have been affected by mesothelioma.

"Mesothelioma UK is an outstanding charity dedicated to improving the life and experience of those affected by mesothelioma. We are proud to support the incredible work of this charity, to ensure that they can continue providing invaluable support and resources."
