Tilney Bestinvest, the leading investment and financial planning firm, is delighted to announce its Glasgow office has raised enough money to Pay for a Day of care at its local Marie Curie hospice in Springburn, Glasgow. The office’s fundraising efforts has seen it raise over £6,500 in order to meet its target.
Paul Frame, Managing Director – Head of Investment Management, Scotland, commented: “A number of our team have received personal support from Marie Curie and had first-hand experience of visiting the Springburn hospice and benefitting from its exceptional care.
The team raised the money through various efforts, including bake sales, numerous sporting endeavours including a Santa Dash and breakfast mornings.
“We are proud to be able to support Marie Curie in such an impactful manner by paying for a whole day of care. It provides us with an opportunity to give back to the hospice which has given so much to so many of us.”
In addition, the company’s other offices from around the country, including the Edinburgh, Birmingham and London offices, have also assisted in reaching the target fundraising goal. This was most notably done through a concurrent bake off.
The hospice is run by a superb team, supporting patients along with their families at the most challenging of times.
Paul Frame, Managing Director of Tilney Bestinvest, said: “At Tilney Bestinvest, staff and their families have been supporting Marie Curie in Glasgow and across Scotland for many years. A number of us have even received personal support from the charity.
“There are, therefore, many people within our business who have had experience of visiting the Marie Curie Hospice in Glasgow and who have benefitted from the hospice’s care. The overwhelming feeling is that the hospice team is exceptionally professional and supportive in the most challenging of times for patients and their families. Quite simply, where would we be without this kind of support in our local community?”
