Four members of the J Thomson digital team climbed Ben Nevis this week in support of The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.
Jeff Black, Sean Dunne, Craig Hadden and Steven Tierney climbed Scotland’s highest mountain - a full 1,345 metres - on Saturday 8th September in support of Lizzie O’Neill, the mother of Jeff, who sadly passed away 10 years ago.
The group’s hike was part of a charity initiative, the conclusion of which was a fund raising night on 21st September to raise money and awareness for the Hospice that took such fantastic care of Lizzie and her family throughout their time of need and helps many other families every year. The initiative was a success and they raised in excess of £2,000, a fantastic achievement.
Each year, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice looks after more than 1,200 patients and their families and heavily relies on voluntary donations and fundraising events from individuals, communities and businesses alike in order to continue delivering the highest level of care, free of charge to families in need.
The funds raised by the J Thomson digital group will be used to help build a new hospice for the people of Glasgow in Bellahouston Park.
