Some 17 women from jewellery trade specialist insurance brokers, TH March, will be taking part in a midnight march for charity.
The march will take place this Saturday (1 July) to help raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice in Plymouth.
The ladies have been preparing with healthy lunches, regular walks and spending time away from their desks.
They will be joined by thousands of other women for the St Luke’s Hospice Midnight Walk for Women, in a hope to raise £4m towards palliative care and patient support.
Joanne Morgan, HR manager, said: “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 and like others on the walk we will each be walking in memory of those loved ones.
For me, St Luke’s looked after my father-in-law during his last few weeks and the level of care was excellent.The support they provided to my husband’s family after his father passed away was beyond expectations.”
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.
“It is great that so many of our wonderful staff have decided to take part in the Midnight Walk this year. I know from my own experience (from long distance running) that charitable fundraising takes on a life of its own. We are really proud of everyone.”
