Why are six employees of Christies Care taking part in the ‘Midnight Walk’ in Ipswich on May 16th in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice. Because they ARRRRRRRGH! And, of course, because they CARE.
(L to R): Louisa ‘The Wench’ Wilton, Sarah ‘Salty Dog’ Middleton, Diane ‘Marauder’ McGovern, Tina ‘Tin-leg’ Sawer, Captain Lin ‘Skull & Cross’ Barnes’, ‘Seasick’ Samantha Ellul.
“Raising money to help care for those in need is something we understand both emotionally and practically at Christies Care. We are all too aware of what it takes to provide a good quality of life to those with serious illness and disability. We want to show our support for St Elizabeth Hospice and we hope to see many more people putting one foot in front of the other for such a good cause.”
Lin Barnes, Director
Lin will be joined by Tina Sawer, Louisa Welton, Diane McGovern, Sarah Middleton and Samantha Ellul on the 8-mile route and they will be immersing themselves fully in the event’s pirate theme. On Friday, May 8th, the rest of the Christies Care staff will be joining in the fund-raising effort with a pirate-themed work day, bake-sale and raffle.

St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living with a progressive illness. Our work is centred around an individual’s needs, which means specialist support, wherever it is required. We care for people at home, in the community or at the Hospice. We help people deal with problems such as pain, anxiety and fatigue, as well as offering practical advice and family support.
St Elizabeth Hospice is an independent charity which provides services free of charge. Our services cost £9.1 million a year to run, with almost three quarters of that figure coming from the local community. We rely on fundraising, donations and volunteers. We are grateful for any support given to help us grow local Hospice care for local people.
