Thursfields steams ahead on hospice fundraising journey
Thursfields Solicitors has raised more than £450 for KEMP Hospice after organising a whistle-stop afternoon tea on the Severn Valley Railway.
We hosted 28 clients and other local professionals on the steam train journey from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and back on Thursday 13 September.
Passengers paid for their tickets with profits from the event going to the KEMP Hospice in Kidderminster, which offers care and support to patients and families experiencing life-limiting illness and bereavement.
Shane Miller, director of Thursfields’ Family Law department and the company’s lead in the Wyre Forest area, said: “We received really positive feedback as everyone had a great experience – an atmospheric journey while meeting other professionals, enjoying afternoon tea and raising money for a great cause at the same time. The KEMP Hospice is an inspirational charity in the local community and we were delighted to raise £455 to help them continue their important work.”
Cathy Sloan, head of fundraising at KEMP Hospice, said: “A big thanks to Thursfields for arranging such a good event that raised what are crucial funds for our hospice. Donations like this make it so much easier for us to help families who are going through some very difficult stages.”
