Estate agent Your Move Chris Stonock has nominated St Cuthbert’s Hospice as its charity for 2014.
The charity provides a range of care and support services to individuals, as well as to their relatives and carers, helping people to cope with life limiting illnesses.
Employees of Your Move Chris Stonock, who are based at eight offices across Tyne and Wear and County Durham, will come together to take part in fundraising events.
Abbie O’Connor, marketing manager of Your Move Chris Stonock said: “Members of staff had the opportunity to nominate a charity and then vote for the one they would most like to raise money for.
“We had a huge response and the winning charity was St Cuthbert’s Hospice because of their great work within the local community. I think the majority of people, at some point in their life will know someone with a life-limiting illness and it’s so important that the individual and their families receive care and support”.
Fundraising will take place throughout the year and will include staff taking part in the Great North Run, a Newcastle to Amsterdam bike challenge and a swimathon.
Jade McArdle, Community Fundraiser at St Cuthbert’s Hospice said:“St Cuthbert’s Hospice is thrilled that Chris Stonock staff have decided to support us in this way.”
