Leeds firm boosts coffers of Martin House Children's Hospice
A Leeds accountancy firm has given a welcome funding boost to Martin House Children's Hospice in Wetherby.
Staff at Brown Butler, in the city centre, have taken part in various fundraising events over the past 12 months after pledging to support the charity in 2020.
The firm has now been able to hand over more than £3,900 to the hospice after a serious of challenges including a 90-mile bike ride along the coast from Leeds to Filey, a race night and a Christmas jumper day.
The money raised by the company will be used by Martin House to continue to provide vital care and support to babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions - and their families.
Throughout the pandemic, the hospice has continued to adapt its services to its specialist care, which has included dealing with a growing demand for care at home.
In April last year, it was forced to launch an online fundraising appeal after anticipating a loss of over £1.7m in essential funding due to the crisis.
“This is a fantastic cause that does such amazing work locally. It was a real honour to be able to do our bit to help them out.
“A big thank you goes out to all of our staff and clients who went the extra mile, despite the challenges we have faced, to raise money for this charity.”
