On Friday 2nd May Spencers Solicitors took part in Ashgate Hospice's Bring a Pound Day, a fundraising event where everyone is encouraged to donate £1 the charity.
Ashgate Hospice are a Chesterfield based charity that provides specialist palliative care at their facilities in Old Brampton and within the wider community.
On the day local radio station Peak FM were out and about with Ashgate volunteers across North East Derbyshire visiting participating businesses, shops, schools and communities, collecting pounds and making a real difference.
As well as collecting a pound from everyone, Spencers staff organised a variety of other fundraising activities including:
- • An impressive bake sale organised by our Client Liaison Team of buns, muffins and cakes in abundance
- • A raffle with donated prizes including champagne, chocolates, glassware, gardening set, electric wok and the list goes on …
- • Decoration of the whole office and staff in Ashgate Hospice colours of green and white
- • A visit from Peak FM DJ James Summers
