Lawyers don one­sies for fundrais­ing walk

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

LAWYERS, of­fice staff and friends and fam­ily from a law firm donned baby grows and one­sies for a very spe­cial fundrais­ing event.

The vol­un­teers from SAS Daniels, based in Mac­cles­field, walked from Con­gle­ton to Mac­cles­field to raise money for the Baby­grow Ap­peal at The Count­ess of Ch­ester Hospi­tal.

The staff beat their orig­i­nal fundrais­ing tar­get of £500 and raised more than £930 for the char­ity.

They now hope to top their next tar­get of £1,000.

The char­ity was estab­lished to raise £3m to build a brand new Neona­tal Unit at the hospi­tal which aims to pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties for pa­tients and their fam­ily.

Ac­cord­ing to He­len Gowin, part­ner at the firm, the 10 mile walk was well at­tended and good-humoured.

She said: “It was great fun to see col­leagues, friends and fam­ily all dressed up in their baby grows in­stead of the usual work at­tire.

“The sunny weather lifted our spir­its as we trekked through thick and slip­pery mud.

“We all had great fun and have been blown away by peo­ple’s gen­eros­ity for this great cause.”
