Our Midlands region added another £500 to the thousands our Peterborough office has already raised for a local hospice.
The latest donation was collected through a World Cup-inspired dress down day. The money went towards the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall hospice appeal which aims to raise £6 million to build a new hospice at Thorpe Hall in Peterborough.
Unprecedented support from across the region has already raised £2.4 million, allowing the charity to start building work in September.
Our total contribution comes to £4,920 which has been raised at events including a corporate golf event, a Star Trek-themed dress down day, sponsored leg waxing during “Febru-hairy”, and donating furniture from our show home at the Orchid development in Oakham.
Nilesh Patel, regional fundraiser at Thorpe Hall in Peterborough said: “On behalf of everyone involved with Thorpe Hall and the appeal, a huge thanks to Linden Homes for their continued support. Every penny raised really does make a difference.”
Linden Homes Midlands finance director Fraser Hopes said: “We all had a lot of fun with this latest sporting-themed fundraising event, and it gives us enormous pleasure to continue to help with the Thorpe Hall appeal in some small way.”
Most recently, our receptionist Karen Dakin appealed for colleagues to donate unwanted gifts and other items to the Thorpe Hall Summer Fete on August 3rd – which she also presented to Nilesh.
