Maxwell Hodge Solicitors recently hosted a “Blooming Great Tea Party” raising much needed funds for Marie Curie Hospice, Liverpool who celebrate their 60th anniversary this year.
Five branches of Maxwell Hodge participated in the event – holding cake stalls, book stalls, bottle bola, children’s cake decorating and a raffle was held at each branch also. Their Kirkby branch was also attended on the day by a Body Shop at Home representative who kindly gave her time to offer hand massages and mini facials in return for a small donation to the charity.
It was a very successful day, raising £1,288.12. Claire Banks, Director at Maxwell Hodge recently attended at the Liverpool Hospice to present them with the cheque. Claire Banks said “We are so pleased to have been able to make a contribution to Marie Curie’s funds. They do such a fantastic job. We are lucky to have a hospice in our locality. A colleague of ours sadly passed away earlier this year. He was looked after by the hospice and we are grateful to them.”
Tina Gill, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser said: “We’re very grateful for the support from Maxwell Hodge Solicitors – they’re helping us to make sure that more dying people get the care and support they need at the end of their lives.”
“Fundraising is a really enjoyable experience – you can do it on your own, with friends or colleagues or as part of a fundraising group, and Marie Curie will support you from the moment you sign up. Anyone interested should call 0151 801 1405 or visit mariecurie.org.uk/get-involved.”
Maxwell Hodge Solicitors would like to thank everyone who donated raffle prizes and purchased raffle tickets, which all contributed to making the day a great success.
