Specialist insurance brokers for the jewellery trade TH March, has announced seven members of its staff will take part in the midnight March in order to raise funds for St Luke Hospice.
Team ‘March@Midnight’ consisting of; Jo Morgan, Debbie Lawson, Emily Conybeare, Jayde Bassett, Holly Baird, Jo Federico and Jade McDermott ,will be donning retro 80s gear, along with their St Luke’s Midnight Walk T-Shirts to march 13 miles through the night with hundreds of other women on Saturday 20 July.
The women, all work in various roles for TH March Insurance Brokers at the company’s National Service Centre in Yelverton, Devon and say they have each been touched in some way through family and friends by the work of the hospice and they want to “give something back” by raising as much money as possible.
Each year St Luke’s must raise at least £4m in order to continue with its work.
Team member, Jo Morgan, said: “As a company we try really hard to promote healthy living initiatives in a number of different ways and of course walking is very much central to that, although it doesn’t normally happen at midnight.”
