SOLICITORS have given some much needed legal aid to a children’s hospice.
Aaron & Partners Solicitors in Chester undertook the Ty Gobaith Corporate Challenge, in partnership with HSBC, and raised £1,000 for Hope House Children’s Hospices.
As part of the challenge they were given £50 from HSBC to try to raise funds for Hope House.
They held numerous fundraising events including a football match, cake sale, dress down days and lots more, working tirelessly to raise money to help local terminally-ill children.
Rachel Pike, community fundraiser for Hope House, said: “We are very grateful to everyone at Aaron & Partners for their support. They really have worked flat out for this challenge and have brought in a tremendous sum of money, which will help us to continue ‘making the most of short and precious lives’.
“The challenge overall has helped to raise a massive £75,000 for Hope House and we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has taken part.”
Hope House cares formore than 250 terminally-ill children and their families, and supports over 130 bereaved families from across Cheshire, North and Mid Wales and Shropshire. More than 95% of their funding comes from the general public. This year alone they need to raise at least £4m to keep the doors to their two hospices – Hope House in Oswestry and Ty Gobaith in Conwy – open.
