Local estate agent Gascoigne Halman has raised over £5000 for the East Cheshire Hospice in a multitude of fun and challenging fundraising events throughout the year. The donation to East Cheshire Hospice is part of a larger fundraising initiative which saw Gascoigne Halman raise over £10,000 with donations also going to St Ann’s Hospice, St. Rocco’s Hospice and Blythe House.
The fundraising efforts involved staff from its 18 offices across the North West which included a charity bike ride, The Wilmslow Half Marathon, a 5-a-side football tournament, a duck race, a Bakethon, a sponsored walk at Lyme Park, as well as a ‘It’s a Knock Out’ Challenge.
Commenting on the success of the fundraising efforts, John Halman said: “We are really pleased that we have been able to support these local hospices throughout the year. These very worthwhile charities do such a great job in supporting and caring for people when they need it the most. The team has done a fantastic job in all of their fundraising efforts and I feel very proud that we have been able to raise an extremely significant amount of money!”
We also spoke to Camilla Crockett, Corporate Fundraising Officer for East Cheshire Hospice, about Gascoigne Halman’s contribution to the hospice. She said:
“We were delighted when Gascoigne Halman announced they would be supporting East Cheshire Hospice as one of their nominated charities this year. We have been so impressed with the commitment the company and all of its employees have shown to their fundraising. We hope they are all really proud of everything they have achieved, and would like to say a huge thank you.”
