We are delighted to report that our team of talented ‘jumpers’ raised £880 and achieved 41,066 jumps in July for the ’75 star jumps a day in July’ challenge set by our ‘Charity of the Year’ Marie Curie. Marie Curie provide care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families, and last year they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK.
Our participants committed to do 75 star jumps each day to raise funds to make sure Marie Curie can support people affected by terminal illness, bereavement and grief.
TC team members and their families signed up to complete the challenge as a group. We kept track of their progress on our social media pages.
Charlotte Gilbert, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser for Fife & Forth Valley commented, “Wow! A big thank you to Thomson Cooper for their outstanding support, and collective efforts in raising over £800 by taking on the 75 star jumps challenge in July. Thank you for being a shining example of giving back and supporting Marie Curie’s vital work. Let’s continue making a real difference together!”
Here are some of the pictures we took during the challenge. Thanks to everyone who took part and to those who made a donation. We really appreciate it.
Every penny makes a difference
Whatever you raise helps people. Here are just a few examples of how your fundraising makes a real difference to people’s lives.
- £3 pays for a patient’s nourishing meal whilst they stay in one of the Marie Curie hospices.
- £17 funds a call to their Support Line, providing practical information and emotional support to someone when they need it.
- £23 pays for one of the Marie Curie nurses to provide an hour of expert care and support to someone living with a terminal illness.
- £120 heats one of the hospices for a day, so patients and their families can stay comfortable.
