Staff at Nelson Myatt Solicitors will be stepping up to raise much needed funds for St David’s Hospice. Throughout the month of March, the team of ten are going to get active, adding their steps together towards their 3 million target.
The fundraising month will end with a group march from their offices in Llandudno Junction and over Conwy Mountain at the end of the month.
Nelson Myatt Practice Manager, Stephen Myatt said:
“We were all set to take part in the Boxing Day Dip. We thought “no way will our staff want to do that”. However, when we asked, they all to our surprise quite happily said yes. Unfortunately, the dip was cancelled and we had already raised £330 from friends and clients who wanted to see us suffer!
“Instead, we turned the fundraising challenge into a walk for the whole of March, and the name ‘March March’ was born.
“The whole team gave ourselves a target of 3 million steps between us. Considering we usually sit at our desks for most of the day it was both going to be a reasonable effort and at the same time promote a healthier routine for us all.
“I created a spreadsheet to monitor our progress, bringing out the competitive nature in all of us and now we can’t wait to see how we have done against each other on a daily basis.
“We are all taking those extra steps each day, some have started walking to Tesco for lunch rather than making that two-minute drive and so we are even helping the environment at the same time. Dogs are getting extra-long walks too.
“As we approach the 800k step mark, we are just a little off our target but with the inspiration of your generous donations we will get there no matter what.”
