Life Begins at 40 Fundraising Campaign
This year Hegarty’s nominated local charity is Thorpe Hall Hospice. Thorpe Hall provides exceptional care for seriously ill people as well as supporting their families. This vital resource and the incredible people who run it touch the hearts of everyone they help.
Their campaign to build a new, purpose-built hospice has reached stage two, with over £2million raised. But with a £6million total target, there’s a long way to go. Hegarty LLP partners and staff want to help promote this lifeline and are aiming to raise £10,000 to celebrate the firm’s 40th anniversary. So far a World Cup-themed dress-down day and cake sale have helped contribute to the current total of £1336.50.
In keeping with the ‘life begins at 40’ theme, individual staff members have signed up to attract sponsorship for their own personal challenges. For example, Yvonne is a lifetime nail biter and has committed to stop biting her nails by the firm’s anniversary date of 15 October. Breaking the habit of a lifetime is no mean feat! Ali and Ashley are going to run the Perkins Great Eastern Run on 12 October. And the firm is also aiming to fill 40 collection bags to sell at the Sue Ryder shop. Every staff member is helping in some way to help achieve this magnificent target.
The firm is also seeking items to contribute towards a raffle to help achieve their target. Donated raffle items could include, for example, vouchers or experience days. If you can offer a prize please contact Angela Babb on 01733 295618 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
