On Sunday 11th March at the Surrey half Marathon Seymours Estate Agents launched their partnership with Woking & Sam Beare Hospices with a fundraising target of £20,000 for the year.
“We are really excited to be supporting Woking & Sam Beare Hospices this year” commented Franco Orlando, Seymours Partner “This is the first of many events that we will be taking part in to raise money for our local community charity”.
Five members of Seymours staff kicked off the fundraising by taking part in the Surrey half marathon Mark Liney, James Powney, Daniel Maltby, Richard Stovold and Gerry Maguire all completed the event in impressive times around the two hour mark and have to date raised £670.
“We are so grateful to Seymours for choosing to support us “commented Lauren Glynn Corporate Fundraising manager “70% of the care we provide is in the patient’s own homes and the money Seymours raise will help to continue this vital service”
Throughout the year staff from Seymours branches in Woking town centre, Knaphill and Horsell will be taking part in various hospice challenge events including the Dragon Boat Race that takes place on Goldsworth Park Lake in June. Alongside this each branch will be organising their own events throughout the year.
