The trust also provides information booklets to children and their families about the nature of their treatment.

Within the county, it extends practical, financial and emotional support, providing a listening ear for anyone struggling during challenging times.

"This year, we're proud to team up with another local charity to raise money for the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.

"At Ballards, we're passionate about making a positive impact, and we're dedicated to doing everything we can to support this important cause."

Over the course of the year, Ballards LLP will be participating in a variety of events to raise funds.

Responding to the announcement, Coralie Hudson, the trust's community and corporate fundraiser, said: "We are thrilled and honoured to have been chosen by Ballards LLP as their charity of the year and are looking forward to an engaging and rewarding partnership for us both."
