There were many miles clocked up in their walking shoes during lockdown. So as restrictions started to lift a team from Quintas Wealth Management challenged themselves to continue the habit. And even better, to do this for the benefit of others as well as themselves by taking on a walking challenge in aid of LauraLynn.
Anne, Lynda and Shirley agreed to support each other in completing the “100k in May” challenge. This challenge was part of a national fundraising drive by LauraLynn, the children’s hospice. Not only was it fun and motivating but it was a great way to raise funds for this amazing organisation.
LauraLynn is a hospice for children with life-limiting conditions and provides residential care for children and young adults with disabilities. The team selected the charity as it is close to their hearts knowing families who have received invaluable care and assistance from them.
“We were delighted to continue our walking habit and to be able to do this to support LauraLynn. They are financed largely through the generosity of public donations for their children’s hospice and palliative care service and as with many charities found fundraising more challenging during 2020.” commented Anne O’Doherty, Head of Life & Pensions with Quintas Wealth Management.
This was the first time the team had supported LauraLynn with a fundraiser. And the team smashed their target in monies raised and steps walked. Huge congratulations to them and thank you to everyone who supported them!
