On 11th July HB Accountants’ director Karen Chase and her sister Sarah will be striding out 18 miles for charity in memory of their father, Stephen…
“We will be walking, remembering our dad and hoping to raise a few pennies for both Isabel Hospice (who provided us with invaluable support in the weeks leading up to dad’s passing) and Garden House Hospice Care who have come together to organise the Fountain to Fountain hike (hike sounds way more impressive than walk, mental note to only refer to it as a HIKE from now on in!)”Karen chase | Director | HB Accountants
Isabel Hospice provide round the clock care for the East Herts community – this past year has been one of the toughest environments to work in ever and they rely heavily on fundraising events such as this to enable their continued care supporting hundreds of patients and their families during hugely difficult times for them.
Why are Karen & Sarah HIKING?
It is so important to understanding how any money that we raise supports real people…
Did you know that £26 could pay for an hour of healthcare provided by 2 assistants for patients and £59 could pay for a Family Support team to give face to face support to a patient of their family member.
The Support that Isabel Hospice gave us in the weeks leading up to dad’s passing were invaluable. So, we aren’t hiking on Sunday morning in July just to chat and remember our wonderful dad, we are hiking, in his memory, to raise funds and awareness too.KAREN CHASE | DIRECTOR | HB ACCOUNTANTS
