Here’s this week’s update - best read while sipping a long cold drink...
Kids Company: Sandfords estate agents, long-time sponsors of events in Marylebone, Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill and surrounding areas, have again run the tombola at Marylebone Summer Fayre. All proceeds went straight to the fayre’s charity partner, Kids Company, providers of comprehensive practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable children, young people and families. The tombola alone raised over £2,800.
Primrose Hill Community Centre: Sandfords has also joined in with celebrations at the Primrose Hill Summer Fayre, organised by the Primrose Hill Community Association. All proceeds from the fayre will be used at the community centre to improve the local library and to help run activities in the area.
Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service: Katy Cresswell, head of software training and development at Romans, has taken on the tough London to Brighton bike ride challenge and raised over £180 for Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
“It was 54 miles of gruelling highs and exhilarating lows, and for those of you who know the course I managed to cycled all the way up the notorious Ditchling Beacon. My reward at the end…chips!” she says.

Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice: Staff from Convey Law have joined members of Monmouth Rugby Football Club to undertake the Welsh Three Peak Challenge in support of the hospice. They scaled the highest peaks in North, Mid and South Wales, all within 17 hours.
Walking a total distance of 20.35 miles, whilst making a total ascent of 9,397ft, the eight intrepid walkers started climbing Snowdon at 4:30am and finished at Pen Y Fan in Brecon at 9pm It rained all day and the visibility was terrible, but they say they had a great time!
“We managed to raise a staggering £7,619.69 for the Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice, including gift aid, Convey Law sponsorship and donations. Everyone worked really hard on the fundraising, with the patients from Teeth for Life dental practice and members of Monmouth RFC each donating well in excess of £1,000.00” explains Lloyd Davies, chairman of Monmouth RFC and operations director for the Conveyancing Association, which is sponsoring the challenge.
