Williamsons go above and beyond for Dove House in 2019
Posted on: February 12th, 2020
We were delighted to visit Becky and Alison at Williamson’s Solicitors to celebrate the solicitors amazing fundraising achievements throughout 2019. The firm kindly participated in the hospice’s “Make a Will Fortnight” last September, with Becky and Alison giving up their time for free in return for a donation to Dove House. After generously taking over 20 appointments during the fortnight, they helped to generate an incredible £3700.
In addition to this, the whole staff force went above and beyond throughout the year in taking on a wide variety of fundraising challenges. As well as making donations for old work phones, staff held bake sales and raffles, as well as walking over 15 miles in support of our patients as part of the Wine Dash. In total, staff members helped to raise an unbelievable £9067!
Speaking after the presentation, Dove House Hospice Regional Fundraiser Jethro Shearring said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone at Williamsons. They have been passionate supporters of the hospice from the moment they signed up for our Make a Will Fortnight appeal in 2018. It has been a pleasure to show members of the staff around the hospice to enable them to see the hugely positive difference that their efforts have made to our patients and their loved ones. The overwhelming support from all those involved enables us to not only continue to provide our specialist care but to expand on our services to offer more support than ever before.”
