Our support for Willen Hospice continues!

The team at Keens Shay Keens MK LLP  has been supporting Willen Hospice in various ways over the past several years.  Most recently, we ran a fundraising stall at the annual ‘Walk for Willen’ on Sunday 1st June 2014.

Walk for Willen is a popular annual sponsored walk around Willen Lake which, over the past 10 years, has raised £120,000 for the patients and families of Willen Hospice. On returning to the Hospice from their walk, walkers are invited to enjoy summer garden activities, stalls and refreshments in the Hospice gardens. This year, the Walk featured a children’s teddy bears picnic thanks to a gift of 200 teddy bears from the Disney Store Milton Keynes.

Our stall consisted of competitions for all sorts of donated prizes from jellybeans, chocolates and whisky to an SG Willis & Sons flower voucher and our own 4ft teddy (which was won by a very delighted 9 year old!).  Other Milton Keynes based businesses running stalls on the day were Aston Martin, VW Financial Services, DHL and Feeling Crafty.

A special thank you to Kathy, Maggie, Cara, Becky and Angela for running our stall on this warm and sunny day.  Also our gratitude goes out to everyone (our partners, staff members, families and friends) who donated the prizes, gazebo and other supplies to make this effort possible.  And, last but not least, we appreciate all the generous people who took part in our competitions.

Our stall raised £90 for Willen Hospice, an amount which helps pay for 3 nursing uniforms.  For more information about the important work of Willen Hospice please visit: http://www.willen-hospice.org.uk/
