Saffery Champs Get Walking Again...


THE staff at Saffery Champness are no strangers to supporting the Pink Ladies. Women from the firm have donned cerise outfits and put their best feet forward on every walk so far. And this year is no exception.

Sixteen employees, who have dubbed themselves the Saffery Belles, will be setting out from the Grandes Rocques start line to raise money for the local breast cancer support group.

Not only does Saffery Champness enter a team, it also sponsors the medals received by all those who complete the walk and will double the sponsorship money raised by its staff.

Sharon McHenry and Tomina Hobbs, who have been busy organising the Saffery Belles, said they are continually overwhelmed by their colleagues' enthusiasm and generosity.

'It's such a great event that gets everyone from Saffery's gets involved, whether it's through participation or kind donations', Ms McHenry said.

'There's a great camaraderie between all the women involved and it's fantastic to see so many people working together in support of a local charitable cause'.

Managing director Nick Batiste said: 'As a business, Saffery Champness aims to get involved with community and charity events that make a fundamental difference to people's lives and our staff always get behind this event.

'Sponsoring the medals is an opportunity for us to congratulate all those who have completed the walk and thank them for the money they have raised for such a worthwhile local cause'.

Walking in the Saffery Champness Pink Ladies team will be Sharon McHenry, Sharon Hickman, Tomina Hobbs, Margaret Pearson, Jill Hutton, Lucy Dodd, Carla Allen, Michelle Scott, Mandy Hallett, Danielle Bougourd, Allison Brouard, Helen Green, Claire Tersigni, Jenny Warry, Emma Wild and Maria Adam.
