25 staff from the Crewe office of 1825, the financial planning arm of Standard Life, took part in an 18.25 kilometre walk from Audlem to Barbridge in aide of St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford.

Completed on Friday 4th October, the walk began in Audlem at noon, with members of the public providing the team with friendly support and encouragement on the way. The group took a well-deserved break at the half-way point, Nantwich, and the concluded their challenge at 5:30pm in Barbridge.

The walk, which raised £2,100, was in aid of St Luke’s Hospice in Cheshire which offers a wide range of services to support people dealing with life limiting illnesses in mid and south Cheshire.

Mike Cullinane, Regional Manager at 1825 North West commented: “With a bit of help from their four-legged friends and support from friends and family the team battled through the blisters and rain to complete the 18km charity walk. It really is brilliant to see so many 1825 colleagues come together to do their bit for an incredible cause.

“St Luke’s Hospice offers life changing support to people in mid and south Cheshire, we hope our donations can help to make a real difference to local people’s lives. I am so proud of the team and would like to thank the public for their generous donations. I look forward to building on the success of the walk with future charity events.”
