Bridges Estate Agents raised £25,000 for Phyllis Tuckwell in their first year as corporate partners of the Hospice Care charity, through fundraising events in which Bridges employees showed their support for Phyllis Tuckwell, which cares for patients and families who are living with a terminal illness, in West Surrey and North East Hampshire.
As well as taking part in Phyllis Tuckwell’s events, Bridges staff also organised their own fundraising activities. Football matches, cricket matches and exhausting treks across ten peaks in Yorkshire all pushed the total amount raised higher. Bridges also sponsored three of Phyllis Tuckwell’s Hospice Care at Home (HCAH) pool cars, for the nurses to visit patients across West Surrey and North East Hampshire, who chose to spend their last days in their own homes, rather than in hospital or at the Hospice.
“It has been a fabulous year and we would like to thank all of the Bridges staff who took part in raising this fantastic amount of money for Phyllis Tuckwell,” said Nick Adams at Phyllis Tuckwell.
“It is with generous support from companies such as Bridges that we able to care for our patients and their families.
“It has been a real privilege to partner with such a valuable local charity with such a fantastic set up,” said Carlo Stocchetti, Group Managing Director at Bridges.
