How an Evesham company is taking steps to help brave Freya

Evesham Editorial 9th Apr, 2023   0

WORK colleagues at an Evesham company are pulling on their trainers and walking boots and walking four million steps to support Hope House Children’s Hospices.

Some 20 members of staff from Marley Risk Consultants Ltd will have to walk about 200,000 steps each to complete their challenge.

They have chosen to raise money for Hope House as it has supported the family and daughter of their colleague Ben Bridgwater, who lives in Shropshire.

Ben’s baby daughter Freya had been born with a life-threatening condition and visits Hope House for care.

“Freya isn’t expected to live a full life and we just don’t know how long we have got with her,” said Ben’s wife Georgie.

“It does make us value every day more and want to get the best out of every moment. But there is no way we could do that without the help of the Hope House team, they really are amazing.”

Sally Carson, HR Manager at Marley Risk Consultants Ltd said: “Ben gives absolutely everything at work and at home with his family and we have been able to see what amazing work the hospice does for the family and we wanted to raise some money and support the charity the best we can.”

Fund-raiser Sarah Ritchie said: “Without amazing support from the community we simply wouldn’t’ be able to be here for children and families like Freya’s.
