Simcocks supports Rebecca House

Rebecca House has been given a cash injection by Simcocks.

The Douglas-based law practice adopted the charity in 2011 and director David Spencer recently presented them with a cheque for £4771.46.

PR and Marketing Manager for the children’s Hospice Rebecca House, Mary Doyle said: “A huge thank you to all the staff and directors at Simcocks for all their endeavours for our children’s hospice.

“This is an amazing amount and will be used to help fund a specific piece of equipment for our patients to use. I would add our appreciation to other companies involved in this initiative.”

Each year staff at Simcocks choose a different Isle of Man-based charity to adopt and last year it raised money through a range of different events including a sponsored abseil, dress down days and running a stall at Nobles Park car boot sale. Staff also signed up for a month-long fitness challenge and they clocked up more than 1000 miles by swapping their cars for bicycles to get to and from work. The initiative was also supported by Thomas Miller Investment (Isle of Man) Limited and Cayman National Bank and Trust Company (Isle of Man) Limited.

David Spencer said: “Support for Rebecca House has been very enthusiastic and everyone in the company has been involved in raising this money.”

“Lots of different events have been organised throughout the year and all the hard work has paid off. The results have exceeded expectations and we are delighted to be able to make a meaningful contribution to the charity. The September Fitness Challenge was a very positive thing to do as it was a novel way of raising money as well as helping some of us in getting fit.”
