March@Midnight to support St Luke’s Hospice

Seven fundraisers from a company of insurance brokers are gearing up for a very long midnight march in aid of their local hospice.

Team ‘March@Midnight’ consisting of; Jo Morgan, Debbie Lawson, Emily Conybeare, Jayde Bassett, Holly Baird, Jo Federico and Jade McDermott, will be donning retro 80’s gear, along with their St Luke’s Midnight Walk T-Shirts to march 13 miles through the night with hundreds of other women on Saturday July 20th.

The women, all work in various roles for TH March Insurance Brokers at the company’s National Service Centre in Yelverton, Devon and say they have each been touched in some way through family and friends by the work of the hospice and they want to give something back by raising as much money as possible.

Each year St Luke’s must raise at least £4 Million in order to continue with its work.

Team member, Jo Morgan said: “As a company, we try really hard to promote healthy living initiatives in a number of different ways and of course walking is very much central to that, although it doesn’t normally happen at midnight!”

Recently the company was so inspired by the BBC programme ‘War on Plastic’ with Anita Rani and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall that it has decided to buy reusable metal water bottles for distribution to its entire staff of 115.

Definitely, those new water bottles will be put to good use on Saturday 20th July at the Midnight Walk.

A team from TH March last took part in the Midnight Walk two years ago. Back then the ‘Diamond Girls’ (TH March are specialist insurance brokers to the UK jewellery trade – hence the name) raised hundreds of pounds thanks to the support of colleagues, friends and family. They hope to be equally as successful this time around.
