Over the course of the year members of Tisshaws participated in a number of events to raise these much needed funds. Hana and Lidia bravely completed a firewalk and in May 2018 we participated in the Mid-Sussex marathon weekend. The marathon of 26.2 miles split over 3 consecutive days featured a 10 mile run on Saturday in East Grinstead, a 10 mile run on Sunday in Haywards Heath and a 10km run on Bank Holiday Monday in Burgess Hill.
Our brave solicitors Verity and Craig ran the entirety of the marathon over three days, whilst our Director, Gilva and solicitor, Hana joined in on the final leg on the Bank Holiday Monday.
Conditions were hot all weekend and the course included muddy and hilly terrains but all runners completed their chosen distances!
Most importantly the Firm managed to raise over £1,000.00 for St Peter & St James Hospice. The money raised has been used to sponsor a therapy room at the hospice for one year.
Gilva and Hana were honoured to visit the Hospice recently and see this therapy room, which will help to provide patients with a calming environment to receive their treatments, which can include physiotherapy or complimentary therapies. Gilva and Hana were touched by the exceptionally warm and professional services provided to patients at the Hospice, which is funded largely by private donations and public fundraising, and has long held an important presence in the Mid-Sussex area.
Tisshaws is extremely grateful to all those who kindly donated to our fundraising and hopes to continue supporting St Peter & St James Hospice in the future.
