Trethowans supports Salisbury District Hospital in memory of baby Scarlet

By Ben Carey on 13 August, 2021

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 for patients.

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.
