The latest news from our sponsors Hillyer McKeown…
Within a week of the Countess charity approaching Hillyer McKeown about supporting the challenge, three brave teams had enthusiastically stepped forward to take part on 24th March 2018. The teams are committed to raising the £1500 target (£500 each team). The fundraising event is based on the Wipeout as shown on TV and involves physical and mental challenges.
Elspeth from the Countess commented, “Huge thank you in advance to all those that support us, and we’ll do our best to get photos and videos to you all.”
When asked why he’s taking part Craig, from the accounts department at Hillyer McKeown shared his story:
“Having worked in Chester for over three years, I think it’s important on a personal and business level to support your local community. We work in Chester, have clients here and want the area to thrive. I feel supporting the Countess charity is especially important; it is our local hospital for both myself and our staff so we feel the challenge is a fun way to help.
The charity wants to make trips to the hospital feel as comfortable as possible, and give patients the care and attention they need. Our team taking the challenge also feel it’s a great local cause – one of the group goes regularly so feels quite strongly about supporting the hospital that has looked after them and their family. There are other examples of how hard the charity works to benefit the community, and I am proud to be part of that.”
Ellie, another team member commented, “I’m looking forward to the Segway Ice Bucket Challenge – I have never tried it before so no doubt I will end up falling over!
