Harding Evans Steps Up to the Challenge: The Road to the Rugby World Cup
Our quest on the Road to the Rugby World Cup challenge is coming to a close. During this campaign, the momentum grew stronger as we connected with local businesses that have taken the initiative to lend their support. Among these, we’ve had the privilege to speak with Harding Evans, a local solicitor providing their expertise to many across Cardiff.
As the call went out to individuals and enterprises alike, Harding Evans stepped up to the challenge, infusing their dedication into our cause. Our voyage from Cardiff to Paris and back takes on a new dimension, fuelled by the collective determination of all who rally behind this endeavour.
Marketing & Communications Manager, Haley Evans said:
City Hospice was voted in as the Charity of the Year for our Cardiff office. We have a small charity committee to come up with ways to help us fundraise and one of the ideas was some sort of distance walking challenge. When City Hospice announced the Road to the Rugby World Cup Challenge, it tied in perfectly with when we were looking to do something, so we jumped straight in.
So far, we’ve racked up nearly 700 miles (out of 900) between us! We need to give special mentions at this point to Delyth, who has run over 220 miles, Hannah who has run and walked over 105 miles, Afonwy who has walked over 75 miles and Luisa and myself, who have both passed the 65 mile mark!
City Hospice are a fantastic charity, who do amazing work supporting patients and their families at the most difficult point in their lives. It’s a pleasure to be able to do our bit to help City Hospice with the valuable care they provide across Cardiff and as a team, they couldn’t be a nicer bunch of people to work with. If you care about people in your communities receiving the best end of live care, we encourage you to get involved.
Mac Smith, Fundraising & Events Manager at City Hospice explained why it is important to work closely with the community:
“Local businesses are ingrained within the community fabric, and working with the likes of Harding Evans in their fundraising efforts, ensures that City Hospice’s services continue to thrive, creating a stronger, more compassionate community network for end-of-life care”.
