A team of five from Thomas Westcott stepped out to support a local charity at the North Devon Hospice Nightwalk on 11 September.
Veronika Boumova and Kerry Tyas from our Barnstaple office, Vanessa Parnell, a Partner in our Holsworthy office, and Nicky Bowden and Maria Lawrence from our Bideford office formed the team TW Wonder Women.
The group completed the four-kilometre walk, which was held at RHS Rosemoor. The gardens were lit up especially for the event, with musical entertainment provided for the walkers.
Thomas Westcott also sponsored the women-only event, which raises funds to help North Devon Hospice provide care and support for people with a life-limiting illness.
The 2020 North Devon Hospice Nightwalk was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year’s event included staggered starts to enable social distancing.
Veronika Boumova, a Manager in our Barnstaple office, said: “Charities have had such a difficult time during the pandemic and fundraising has been very challenging for them. I wanted to do something to help so this was the perfect opportunity.
“North Devon Hospice is a local charity that does very important work. If you are seriously ill, you really need someone to be there for you and your family. I hope that by taking part in the Nightwalk, I will be helping some of those people.
“The event was very well organised with a great atmosphere. The setting was beautiful, with the gardens all lit up, and there were plenty of volunteers on hand to ensure we stayed on course. It was a really great event to be involved with.”
The team has so far raised £305. Visit their Just Giving page to sponsor them.
