Charity Cruse Bereavement Care has received a donation of more than £200 raised during the 46th revival of the Hare Supper in Stamford.
The event was sponsored by local accountants Moore Thompson and its event partners Terrell Solicitors and Richard Austin Agriculture Ltd, and held at The George Hotel of Stamford.
The evening event saw guests from across the East of England enjoy a traditional meal of jugged hare and a talk from Julian Perowne of Jack Buck Farms, which is known nationally for its carefully cultivated celeriac.
Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and provides support to people who have lost loved ones via therapy.
Mark Hildred, Managing Partner at Moore Thompson, said: “Our team had a wonderful evening at the Hare Supper and they learned a lot from the speaker Julian Perowne.
“Much thanks have to go the Hare Supper’s Chairman, Roger Terrell, and our fellow sponsors Terrell Solicitors and Richard Austin Agriculture Ltd for helping to make this event so special.”
Moore Thompson is a long-term supporter of Cruse Bereavement Care and has previously made other donations to the organisation.
The cause is close to many at the firm, none more so than Kirsty Holmes, a Paraplanner from MT Financial Management who used their services after her father passed away.
“We are delighted that this evening managed to raise so much for this fantastic cause,” added Mark.
“The support it offers makes such a difference to the lives of those affected by grief and we hope this donation will go some way to help more people to access Cruse’s services.”
