We have recently held a dress down day and bake sale to raise money for St Rocco’s Hospice, who support people living with life-limiting illnesses and their families in the Warrington area.
They provide specialist care and support, not only to their patients, but also their families and they also provide a specialist bereavement service for people who have sadly lost a loved one. Losing a loved one can be extremely difficult for family to come to terms with and therefore the support that they provide is crucial during this sad time.
The charity was nominated by two of our staff, Nicola Hughes, Senior Associate Solicitor and Head of Personal Injury and Emma Yemm, Marketing and Communications Assistant. The sisters nominated this charity as they have experienced first-hand the brilliant work that St Rocco’s Hospice do at such a difficult time. The firm is keen to support charities and regularly holds dress down days and other events to raise money for deserving charities which are put forward by their staff.
Nicola and Emma also walked in the Starlight Ladies Walk on Friday 19th June to raise further funds for the Hospice. The Starlight Walk is an all ladies 10km walk which begins at midnight. They walked as part of a larger group of families and friends called Christine’s Crusaders.
The dress down day and bake sale raised a fantastic £140.84, which was then matched by the firm to take the total to £268.68. Thank you so much to all staff members who donated and baked on the day, we certainly enjoyed lots of delicious cakes!
As part of their joint fundraising team, Nicola raised a total sponsorship of £664.96 and Emma raised £676.71. With Christine’s Crusader raising an amazing total of £2,706.74.
Nicola commented on the money raised, “We have been completely overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone who has donated, baked and sponsored us. The hospice does brilliant work and deserves every penny. Thank you so much to everyone for their kindness and generosity and a big thank you to Freeclaim Solicitors for facilitating the dress down day and bake sale, and for very kindly matching the total raised on the day.”
