Some 17 women from jewellery trade specialist insurance brokers, TH March, have smashed their £1,000 charity walk target.
They marched at midnight last week to help raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice, Plymouth. Their total currently stands at £1,800 and is expected to rise.
They were joined by thousands of other women for the Neon Midnight Walk, helping to raise funds towards the £4m the charity must raise to keep providing specialist palliative care and support for patients.
Joanne Morgan, HR manager, said: “We are blown away by the generosity of our families, friends and our employer who have kindly sponsored and raised funds with us. St Luke’s is a much-loved charity and very close to our hearts here at TH March.
“Over the years quite a few of us have had family and friends cared for by the charity. We would like to thank everyone.”
Andrew Alcock, chief operating officer at TH March, said: “TH March has a long history of charitable giving and is delighted to support the efforts of our fantastic team of heroes – we are very proud of them all.”
