AN EMPLOYEE at a Hereford law firm has been named a top fundraiser for St Michael’s Hospice.
Jo Brindle, a secretary at Wyevale Business Park-based Gordon Lutton, was awarded second place at the Employee Fundraiser of the Year awards.
The firm managed to raise more than £7,300 in 2013 for the hospice, which was its charity of the year.
Colin Gordon, managing partner at Gordon Lutton, said: “Firms were invited to nominate a member of staff for an individual award.
Jo has been incredibly supportive of our fund-raising activities.
“She organised our Big Tea event in July, making cakes and bunting and encouraging other businesses to attend. She was also an official marshal at the Venus Challenge and coached our own team which raised £1,300 at that event.”
The awards dinner – which was hosted by the hospice – took place at the Priory Hotel in Stretton Sugwas last week.
Jo said: “I am delighted to have been named as a top fundraiser, it’s a real honour.”
