Ridge Oxford Team Raises Over £700 For Local Children’s Charity

24 July 2019

A team of consultants from Ridge & Partners LLP (Ridge) in Oxford has raised over £700 in support of local children’s charity Helen & Douglas House, after taking part in a sponsored walk around Blenheim Park.

Helen & Douglas House is a home from home for terminally ill babies, children, and their families. It’s a comforting place where families can enjoy creating happy memories together in their child’s last days, weeks, months or years. The staff support the whole family at an unimaginably difficult time, providing practical and emotional support as families face the challenges of terminal illness.

Mark Richards, Oxford Office Managing Partner at Ridge, said:

The weather was kind to us, the rain stopped as soon as the first walkers took to the trail and the sun shone for the reminder of the day.  Everyone had a great time and raised £776 which was accepted by Alison Hooker, Community Fundraising Manager on behalf of Helen & Douglas House.

Alison Hooker from Helen & Douglas House said:

I would like to say a huge thank you to Ridge for raising such a fantastic amount of money to help local terminally ill children. This money will help local children who may not live a long life to enjoy a full life. It means we can be there to help families from diagnosis, during everyday family life, times of crisis and through bereavement. This would not be possible without wonderful supporters like Ridge & Partners.
