Derby Staff Plan 10K Night Walk for Local Hospice

Bracken Lish, Rachel Meadwell and Siobhan McGuinness

Three staff from our Derby office are due to take part in the “Starlight Strut” on behalf of Treetops Hospice.  The hospice is based in the village of Risley in Derbyshire.

Treetops supports people with illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis. It also supports their carers and families.

All services are provided free of charge. The hospice has to raise more than £3 million every year to run. That’s about £7,500 per day. 70% of this comes from charitable donations and fundraising events.

For our colleague Rachel Meadwell this cause is close to her heart. Following her father’s illness he uses the facilities at Treetops to give her mum important respite one day a week.

She has persuaded colleagues Siobhan McGuinness and Bracken Lish to take part in the ladies-only 10k walk that takes place between 10pm and midnight on Friday 19 May 2017.

Further details of the event can be found here.
