Network VEKA’s Office Manager, Susan Lunney, and Karen Galawan (PA to VEKA’s Sales and Marketing Director) have taken part in a sponsored walk to raise money for the local hospice that cared for their late sister Anne.
Susan and Karen took part in Pendleside Hospice’s ‘Girl’s Night Out’ 10k walk with two of their daughters, Shelley and Angela, and raised almost £400 for the cause.
Susan explains: “Karen and I lost our sister Anne on the 9th May 2014, she died in Pendleside Hospice and the staff worked tirelessly to make her last three weeks comfortable and happy – they attended to her every need and really couldn’t have done more for her. Being able to raise some money for the Hospice is our way of thanking the staff for all they do for everyone in their care. Anne was amazed by their attention, care and dedication.
“The 10k walk took place at 8pm and was followed by a celebration at Burnley Football Club. The event was well attended and it was a fantastic atmosphere, we had a great time for a good cause and we were delighted to contribute nearly £400.”
