Ellacotts raise £3,500 for Cransley Hospice

Ellacotts and Cransley Hospice

David Stevens, our Managing Partner, is very proud to present Cransley Hospice with the £3,500 we have raised for them throughout the past year as our Charity of the Year 2017-2018.

We had not one, but two Charities of the Year in 2017-2018 which were voted for by our team and we have been delighted to support two such amazing organisations that are local to both our Banbury and Kettering offices; Katharine House Hospice and Cransley Hospice Trust.

We set ourselves an ambitious fundraising target of £7,000 with all funds split evenly between the two charities. We are so proud of all of our Partners and staff for participating in our fundraising events which resulted in us reaching our target.

Throughout the year we've held various bake sales, Dress Down Fridays, a Strictly Come Dancing Sweepstake and a Christmas Jumper Day. Our big sporting fundraising event saw 40 of our staff participated in the gruelling 15km Rough Runner challenge. 

David Stevens, Managing Partner said:

"We are delighted to have raised £3,500 for such a worthwhile cause, and we have been amazed at the generosity of our clients, friends and contacts of the firm who have supported our various fundraising activities. Cransley Hospice has touched a number of our people and their families, and it has been a privilege to help support the amazing work they do."
