On Sunday (7th April) the Clacton-based team at Thompson Smith and Puxon put on their walking shoes and took part in the Pier to Pier walk in aid of St Helena Hospice. The TSP team included; Marie Crawley, Carly Callaghan, Nikki Buxton, Jess Oughton, Kodie Jamieson and Debbie Hemmingway.

The annual event is organised by St Helena Hospice and sees hundreds of people taking part in the 7 mile walk between Walton and Clacton pier along the promenade with all sponsorship raised going towards the charity.

Unfortunately the weather was not on their side and the team walked a very soggy 7 miles from Clacton to Walton pier in heavy rain, although they didn’t let this dampen their spirits and they successfully completed the walk as a team. They have raised a fantastic £440.00, well done ladies!

St Helena Hospice exists to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people with life-limiting illness, in North East Essex, no matter what their diagnosis. All services are free of charge to patients and their families, so every penny donated really can make a difference. More information about the charity can be found here.
