Bishop Fleming Chartered Accountants has raised a staggering £25,000 for St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth.
The firm’s Plymouth office, which is based in Sutton Harbour has supported the local charity for two-years.
The office which has 54 staff has raised the vital funds through taking part in various activities such as, the Midnight Walk, whilst others have helped at the charity’s shop distribution centre.
The firm have also put on their fair share of fundraising events, showcasing their support. For the last two-years, the firm has been joined by other professionals from across the city as they hosted their annual quiz in aid of the hospice. This summer, the event saw over £7,000 raised in one evening.
It also took part in the Elmer’s Big Parade in the summer, where it sponsored an elephant. Bishop Fleming also gave an extra £1 to St Luke’s to anyone who shared a photo with the Elmer on social media.
More than 1,700 patients are cared for by St Luke’s, the money raised will help the charity to provide specialist end of life care and support to people from across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall.
St Luke’s Hospice, Corporate Fundraiser, Nicola Keen said: “The specialist care St Luke’s provides is given free of charge to those who need us, but it does not come cheap and we couldn’t do what we do without the support we receive from our community.
“Our friends at Bishop Fleming have gone above and beyond in their fundraising for our charity, which will make a big difference to families going through a very challenging time. We couldn’t be more grateful.”
Robert Davey, partner at Bishop Fleming said: “We are delighted to help raise vital funds for St Luke’s Plymouth over the previous two years, particularly throughout what was a memorable centenary year for us in 2019.
“It was fantastic to have the support of so many other businesses from across the city to help us raise such a significant amount. It is proof that strong relationships deliver remarkable results, and this has been shown through our fundraising.”
