Dressed in full pink fairy costumes, twenty one members of Ansons Solicitors took part in this year’s St Giles Hospice Solstice Walk which took place on 20 June. The team have raised a fantastic total of over £800 for the charity who offers specialist care for patients with cancer and other serious illnesses.
In total, over 900 people completed the nine mile night-time stroll through the streets of Lichfield to raise money for St Giles Hospice. Participants and spectators enjoyed a host of activities and dancing as the sun came down, culminating in the release of hundreds of balloons into the sky in memory of loved ones.
Jagdip Bains, an associate solicitor in Ansons dispute resolution team who took part in the walk, commented ‘There was a wonderful atmosphere on the night and we are delighted that we have been able to raise over £800 thanks to kind donations. All of us value how important it is to support the great work of the hard working staff and volunteers at St Giles Hospice, who provide such wonderful support to their patients, families and carers in the local area.’
The Ansons team are already looking forward to putting on their fairy wings back on again for the 2016 St Giles Solstice Walk!
