Thorne Widgery Make May Purple and raise £207 for charity - Thorne Widgery

We are delighted to announce that we have raised £207 for the Stroke Association through its #MakeMayPurple campaign.

Towards the end of May, we asked our team to send us their purple pictures in exchange for a donation – and they didn’t disappoint.

We had loads of fantastic photos, which can be found on our Facebook page here. By taking pictures and making donations the team helped us to raise hundreds for the Stroke Association’s new telephone befriending service for those who are now feeling even more isolated in their recovery due to COVID-19.

Regular communication is a lifeline to a vulnerable person during this time, and it costs just £14.40 to support someone for 12 weeks.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all those who took part and shared their photos and made a donation. This will make a big difference in the lives of so many people.

It was great to be able to support such a brilliant cause and hopefully, we can start planning some more fundraising events now that lockdown measures are easing.
