A team from Stamford are ‘celebrating’ their 40th anniversary year having exceeded their fundraising target for Thorpe Hall.

Hegarty Solicitors have handed over a cheque for £22,126 to Thorpe Hall Hospice in Longthorpe, Peterborough, after 12 months of successful fundraising.

Both teams from Stamford and Peterborough, set a 40th year challenge to raise £10,000 for the Thorpe Hall Capital Appeal, to help fund the new in patients unit at the hospice.

Some of the fundraising activities took the team to new heights, with more than half of the team trekking Mount Snowdon in September.

Other fundraising activities included, an office quiz, Easter bake sale and a collection of unwanted goods to donate to local Sue Ryder shops.

A few members of the team took on their own personal fundraising challenges, including Emma Carter who completed the Stamford 10k race, Ashley Kidd and Alison Ayling who took on their first Great Eastern Run and nail biter Yvonne Miller who grew her nails in return for sponsorship.

Most recently the staff held a gala evening to mark the 40th anniversary, including an auction and raffle on the night to help boost their fundraising target significantly.

Along with a Christmas jumper day and a Lights of Love tree in both of the Hegarty offices.

Founder, Richard Hegarty said: “Everyone here is incredibly proud of what we have achieved.

“Some individuals conquered fears, others physical limitations in order to attract sponsorship for Thorpe Hall.

“The fact we have more than doubled our original target of £10,000 is testament to the hard work, enthusiasm and determination of everyone involved.”
