The Wilkes Partnership puts its best foot forward to raise funds for Acorn’s Children’s Hospice

The CSR Champions at The Wilkes Partnership have set their colleagues a real challenge in a final push to raise much needed funds for our chosen charity of 2020/21, Acorns Children’s Hospice. Well, as with so many things over the last year, it’s taking place virtually but, for those taking part, the challenge is still very real!

Inspired by the Everest Challenge, between 01/03/2021 and 30/04/21 teams from around TWP will be putting their best foot forward to rack up as many steps at they can. Competitive instincts will be at their sharpest as teams aim to be at the top of the leader board each week.

Everyone taking part will record the number of steps they complete and report back to the CSR Champions weekly. We know our teams and trust them all implicitly so we know that every reported step will be counted accurately. But, just in case the competitive spirit does get the better of someone, we’ll be asking for step counter records to keep it all on the up and up!

Over the coming nine weeks we’ll keep you updated with all of the vital statistics: how many steps have been counted, who’s heading the leader board and, most importantly, how much we’ve raised. We’ll share photos from our challengers and give special mentions to those who really get into the spirit of things; a bit of fancy dress is always a nice addition, or sharing some beautiful scenery if they’re out and about for their steps.

Ann-Marie Aston, Partner and Court of Protection Lead at TWP, is leading the charge to help support this inspirational organisation “The Acorn’s Children’s Hospice does incredible work for some of the most vulnerable people. We’re aiming to raise as much as we can on their behalf so please visit our Just Giving page and get involved. Every penny you donate will help Acorn’s continue to provide help and support that is so desperately needed”.
