Tower Street Finance has surpassed the target it set at the start of 2021 to raise valuable funds for Cruse Bereavement Care – its official charity partner for the year.
The goal was to reach a total of £10,000, and that target was exceeded when the team raised just over £15,000 through a series of fundraising events and waived fees from law firms.
Tower Street Finance business development director Dicky Davies said: “We’ve been delighted to support Cruse with our fundraising activities in 2021. They are a natural partner for us as when we come into contact with potential customers they are suffering a bereavement and often going through the grieving process.
“The partnership means we can both refer our customers who may need support and also contribute towards the vital work they do.”
One of the key highlights in the fundraising calendar was when Dicky Davies, Heather Pollard and Rebecca Scherman completed the Vale of York half marathon in September.
Said Heather before the event: “The longest I’ve run previously was a 10km about 7 years ago. I do run a couple of times a week but mainly to negate the wine I drink at the weekend! I started training properly as I had no idea if I could get to the distance before officially signing up as it turns out I just about can. The team get-together afterwards is good motivation and knowing we’ve done it for such a good cause.”
Cruse Bereavement Care head of fundraising Charlene Vallory said: “Having Tower Street Finance on board as fundraisers makes a huge difference to the number of people we can help, which is why we were delighted they chose us as the focus for their fundraising activities.”
Tower Street Finance will be continuing its fundraising activity for Cruse during 2022.
Cruse Bereavement Care offers support, advice and information for children, young people and adults when someone dies. It also works to enhance society’s care of bereaved individuals.
