Law firm helps raise cash for hospice in Hornchurch and Upminster
Staff from a city law firm helped raise money for a children’s hospice in Hornchurch and Upminster.
Volunteers from Weightmans LLP, based near Chancery Lane, spent a day at the Richard House Shops on Station Lane and Corbets Tey Road.
They took part in a Charity Shop Apprentice challenge and helped the shop take in more than �360 of income in Hornchurch and �380 in Upminster.
The day featured fun and games, as well as the sale of a signed picture of Helen Mirren and a signed Martina Cole book in Elm Park.
The same challenge also took place at Dagenham Richard House shop.

Sarah Burden, from the Beckton-based hospice, said: “We are very grateful to Weightmans for their fantastic support and we would like to say a very special thank you to Katy Gander for organising the event.
“The winning team more than doubled the usual shop takings on the day and the event is certainly not one that will be forgotten easily.”
