Charity challenge raises over £900 for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care
2nd October 2018
The Guildford office of Smith & Williamson, the accountancy, investment management and tax group, has raised more than £900 for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care as part of the charity’s Accumulator Corporate Challenge 2018 initiative.
Smith & Williamson’s team was given a £50 note by Phyllis Tuckwell to invest in innovative fundraising activities for the 50 day challenge between 15th January and 5th March. The enthusiastic team organised a range of different activities, most of which were food or drink related, such as providing a tuck shop and hot lunches, which always prove popular with people.
This latest challenge brings the total that Smith & Williamson’s Guildford office has raised for Phyllis Tuckwell to more than £9,000 over the past 18 months.
Maggie Lowe, head of Smith & Williamson’s Guildford office said: “The team has done extremely well to raise more than £900 from this latest challenge. It has been a great team effort across the office and we have had a lot of fun taking part. We are pleased that other local firms have participated in this new initiative and know the money will be put to great use.”
All of the money raised will go towards funding the supportive and end of life care that Phyllis Tuckwell provides for local patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer.
