The team from the Shrewsbury office at wealth manager Brewin Dolphin is taking part in our upcoming Llangollen Canal Walk to raise money and support seriously ill local children.

They will be taking on their own 10-mile hike and completing the challenge on separate days using their allocated ‘fundraising days’ which are provided to staff to help them with their charity efforts.

The Shrewsbury-based business - which has recently pledged support for the children’s hospices by making them their charity partner for the next two years - have already kicked off their fundraising activities with a bake sale as part of the charity’s Final Moments Matter campaign in 2021.

A Great Cause

Robyn Guntrip, Administrator at Brewin Dolphin, said: “Despite the challenge, completing the 10-mile walk will be such an achievement for us and knowing what we raise will be going to such a great cause, makes it all worthwhile.”

Llangollen Canal Walk, which is in its 11th year, is a staple event in the charity’s calendar and has raised thousands of pounds over the years.

“Knowing that every step will be supporting seriously ill local children will drive us on to complete the miles,” added Robyn.

Bekki Fardoe, Fundraiser, said: “We are hugely grateful for the commitment from the team at Brewin Dolphin. We rely on local businesses and our community supporting us and raising vital funds to ensure that we can continue to be there for those that need us the most.

“Without businesses like Brewin Dolphin pledging their support and raising money, we simply wouldn’t be able to ensure our mission that no one should face the death of a child alone.”
