We are encouraging our colleagues, clients and professional contacts to join us on Friday 30 April in supporting Children’s Hospice South West’s Shirty Thirty fundraiser. The event simply involves wearing a crazy or colourful shirt for the day and making a donation to Children’s Hospice South West.

With staff, clients and professional contacts based all over the South West, we hope as many people as possible will get involved and sign up for the Shirty Thirty event.

We would also welcome any support for the Thomas Westcott’s own Shirty Thirty fundraising efforts

Recently named by our staff as Thomas Westcott’s charity of the year 2021, Children’s Hospice South West is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2021. Over the year, we are organising a number of fundraising activities and taking part in the charity’s events.

Children’s Hospice South West provides care and support to families living in the South West who have children with life-limiting conditions. This includes respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care at Little Bridge House in Devon, Charlton Farm in Somerset and Little Harbour in Cornwall.

On the day, we are hosting an online event for our staff to show off their shirts. We will be awarding prizes for the best and worst garments.

Thomas Westcott Partner Patrick Tigwell said: “Whether it’s spotty, flowery or just plain loud, wearing a silly shirt is a fun and easy way of supporting a fantastic local charity. 

“It is also a chance for our staff to come together and socialise at a time when we are all working remotely. 

“We hope to inspire other businesses to take part in the Shirty Thirty event. It’s a brilliant idea to brighten up a working day and raise funds for Children’s Hospice South West.”
