Leading regional estate agents Mullucks Wells have presented a cheque for £1,000 to St Clare Hospice – a charity which provides specialist palliative care across West Essex and the East Herts borders.
The money was raised at a recent Mullucks Wells fundraising developers lunch, and presented at last Friday’s Epping Christmas Fair in front of the company’s vintage 1962 open-top double-decker Bristol bus, which made its public appearance for the first time.
St Clare Hospice Corporate Fundraiser Brooke Stacey said: “I was absolutely delighted to be invited to accept this fantastic £1,000 donation from Mullucks Wells.
“It costs £2.8m a year to provide our services to those with terminal and life-limiting illnesses and the Hospice only receives 30 per cent of its funding from the NHS - so donations like this one are absolutely vital in helping us continue to be there for local people and their families when they need us the most. I would like to say a huge thank you to the Mullucks Wells team and wish everyone there a very happy Christmas.”
Mullucks Wells has recently expanded into Epping, following its acquisition of well-established residential and commercial letting agency Lloyd Williams, which has been based in the town for over 25 years. The business owner John Lloyd Williams, who founded the company in 1988, is now a member of staff.
Daniel Galati added: “Mullucks Wells is a local company, and we see local fundraising as a core part of our business. St Clare Hospice is a fabulous organisation, providing desperately-needed care for patients and their families in our community, and we are delighted to offer them some help this Christmas.”
