Wellbeing Week for Childrens Hospice South West

21st February 2024

Last week, we hosted our first ever ‘Wellbeing Week’, raising an incredible total of £460 for Childrens Hospice South West. This brings our total to date, to £880!

To kickstart the week, we had a Valentines themed bake off, where all offices participated in baking some delicious cakes for everyone to buy on Monday! Thank you to Henrietta at CHSW for coming to crown the winners. Claire Gubb won with her delicious white chocolate and raspberry cake, Ava Hill with her red velvet cake-sicles and Debbi Egan with a gorgeous heart shaped Victoria sponge.

On the Wednesday, Claire Strickland (former yoga instructor), kindly offered to host a lunchtime yoga session where we did 45 minutes of stretching and breathing exercises, leaving us all feeling energised and ready for the afternoon ahead!

Thursday’s activity was a lunchtime quiz – a battle between all offices! After 5 rounds of general knowledge, love, guess the lyrics and more, scores were totalled and ‘Team Hubbers’ (East Devon Private Client Team) and ‘Team Okehampton’ claimed victory!

Finally, on Friday we hosted an afternoon tea at our Financial Services office, where we had delicious scones, tea and fizz! As always, the order in which you should put cream and jam caused a divide in the room. However, the ‘cream first’ team outnumbered the ‘jam first’ crew!

We would like to extend our immense gratitude to Antonia and Laura for organising the week and for everyone who continued to donate along the way. We are all feeling incredibly fortunate to be able to continue to give our support to Childrens Hospice South West, who are such an inspiring Charity.
