Gotelee Solicitors raises £750 for Somersham Ward Support Group.
Somersham ward received a notable amount of money from Gotelee Solicitors, yesterday.
The funds were raised from a festive week in the lead up to Christmas which included staff decorating their desks, Christmas bake sale, hot chocolate station and festive jumper day to raise funds for the Somersham Ward Cancer Unit Support Group.
The week culminated in a “pull my cracker” raffle with prizes donated from many local businesses. The grand total raised was £750.
Gotelee staff met with Sue and Jen from the Somersham Ward Support Group to hand the cheque over and learn more about the wonderful work the support group does from providing a cooked breakfast for every patient to buying equipment for the ward as well as volunteering to visit patients, make drinks and generally be a friendly face.
Alistair Lang, CEO of Gotelee Solicitors said “Somersham Ward has touched many of our employees’ lives, be it a family member, friend, neighbour or colleague and clients who have suffered. It was no wonder we have overwhelming support for this charity. They rely heavily on donations for some of the most basic equipment so we are pleased this donation will be used towards MRI head and neck boards to improve the comfort of patients on the ward”.
