Leading law firm Rollits LLP has handed over thousands of pounds to a regional hospice after revamping its regular fundraising events to offer Covid-safe alternatives.
Rollits is now looking forward to generating more donations for Dove House Hospice by resuming other activities including the return of the firm’s annual golf day on Thursday 1 July.
Pat Coyle, Client Relations Director at Rollits, said: “The restrictions of the last year have had a severe impact on all charities and our usual programme of fundraising events has been heavily disrupted.
“We’re therefore particularly pleased that we were still able to raise well over £3,000 to help Dove House Hospice with its work caring for people in Hull and East Yorkshire and we are doubly determined to build on that by bringing back the golf day this year.
“We’re confident that with the recent lifting of restrictions, the pent-up demand for a return to sporting activities will mean that golfers are keen to support good causes and we’re hoping that will help us attract a lot of participants for the golf day.”
In total Rollits raised £3,450 in aid of Dove House Hospice with £1,760 from the virtual charity challenge which replaced the golf day last year and £1,690 from the firm’s participation in Make a Will Fortnight.
Jethro Shearring [correct], Regional Fundraiser for Dove House Hospice, said: “Over the last year the pandemic has provided a huge number of both clinical and fundraising challenges at Dove House Hospice. The enforced closure of the hospice’s charity shops and cancellation of a great number of fundraising events and appeals has meant that the support of the community has been more vital than ever before.
“Having been there for our patients and their loved ones for over 25 years, Rollits embody this generosity and consistently go the extra mile so that the patients at Dove House, and those closest to them, can continue to access the specialist care they need.
“Through their #RollitsCharityChallenge and participation in Make a Will Fortnight, the amazing staff at Rollits went above and beyond to ensure that they could continue to make a difference. As a result an amazing £3,450 was raised in 2020. We are so grateful to Pat Coyle, Emma Fawke and everyone else who worked so hard to achieve this incredible total, in spite of the hurdles.”
The 2021 Rollits golf day in aid of Dove House Hospice will take place on Thursday 1 July at Brough Golf Club. To find out more please contact Pat Coyle at email@example.com
