Salisbury law firm Trethowans has
raised nearly £2,000 for Salisbury District Hospital’s Stars Appeal.
The money was raised through the
‘Walk for Wards Wherever You Are’ initiative which challenges people to walk
3km, 5km or 10km and raise money via sponsorship.
The Stars Appeal supports hundreds of
patients at Salisbury District Hospital across all wards and departments, as
well as the NHS staff who care for them. It provides new equipment and
facilities, offers specialist training for staff and organises social events
The charity is close to Trethowans having
helped Scarlet, the baby niece of team member Steph Hartley. Scarlet tragically
passed away after a tough battle with cancer.
Steph said, “During the last five
weeks of Scarlet’s life she was cared for by the amazing staff on The Sarum
Ward at Salisbury District Hospital. The Stars Appeal helps fund many of its
resources, which were beneficial to Scarlet’s end of life care.”
“Scarlet’s parents were able to stay
with her and make precious memories with her. Without donations to the Stars
Appeal, they simply would not have been able to do this. So, we wanted to raise
money for the charity.”
On Friday 30th July, Steph, her
daughter Ella and members of Trethowans team, walked 10km from Pitton village
to Salisbury Market Square, raising nearly £2,000 for the Stars Appeal. The
money will be donated specifically to The Sarum Ward.
