Shakespeare Martineau takes a hike on Midsummer’s Day
Beth Tweddle joins Shakespeare Martineau and the local banking community on a charity walk to raise money for The Trussell Trust.
Taking place on the hottest day of the year, Beth led a group of 30 people along the riverside on Shakespeare’s Way before heading across the fields, following in the footsteps of the famous bard.
The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 food banks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million individuals live below the poverty line.
The efforts of the firm and its clients have so far raised over £700 for the worthwhile cause.
Vicki Simpson, partner and joint head of the firms Banking and Financial services sector, said: “We hadn’t anticipated it being quite so hot and it made the walk a little more challenging for us, although this is never a bad thing. Beth did a great job at keeping us all going.“
Naomi Tudor, partner and joint head of the firms Banking and Financial services sector, said: “We believe that CSR has to be more than just words. We want our people to be involved with causes they are passionate about or have a personal connection with. Where this matches the communities in which we operate it means even more.
“We hope that even doing something as small as this will have a positive impact on the communities and charities around us, and we are proud to support the work that The Trussell Trust does.”
