Lantei Compliance Services have been supporting St Catherine’s Hospice for the last year and has announced that it has raised more than £10,000 for the Lancashire based hospice through organising, hosting, and taking part in a range of fundraising events and activities.
Lantei chose St Catherine’s Hospice as their charity of the year as they are close to many people’s hearts within the region. They are the only adult hospice serving the communities of Chorley, Longridge, Preston and South Ribble.
To raise this fantastic amount, two members of the Management team embarked on a gruelling trek up Mount Kilimanjaro, three apprentices undertaking a 11,000ft skydive and a team taking on a 10K course with 30 punishing obstacles at Total Warrior. Hayley Jackson, Fundraising Officer at St Catherine’s Hospice, said:
“The team at Lantei really have gone above and beyond, with each member of staff coming up with new and exciting ways to fundraise. The incredible challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for the hospice was amazing! We’re honoured that they went to such lengths to raise vital funds and spread the word about our work.
“It costs £5.2m to run St Catherine’s each year, £3.5m comes through fundraising efforts and donations. It’s only with the help of people like the Lantei team that we can continue providing specialist care to local people facing life-shortening illnesses, helping them to have quality of life to the end of life. We can’t thank Lantei enough for all they’ve done and hope that everyone enjoyed their year of fundraising for St Catherine’s.”
Leona Smith, co-founder at Lantei expressed: “It has been an absolute pleasure to fundraise for such a wonderful local hospice. Myself and the rest of the Lantei team have enjoyed getting involved in all sorts of fun events to raise as much as we could for St Catherine’s Hospice.”
It will soon be announced who will be Lantei’s charity of the year for 2017/18.
