A team of women from Genzyme, in Haverhill, hope to raise lots of money for St Nicholas Hospice Care by taking part in this years’ Girls Night Out moonlight walk.
Sara Morrish, who works in the finance department at the biotechnology firm, has been drumming up support for the walk for weeks, even designing her own flyers.
She said: “St Nicholas Hospice Care is a charity that Genzyme have always supported.
“It is nice to know you can make a little bit of difference. People who work here have been helped by the Hospice in one way or another.
“Who knows, we all may need the help of it one day.”
This week, Jenny Baskett and Abby Mayes, from the St Nicholas Hospice Care fundraising team, paid a visit to Genzyme, dressed in their pyjamas, to tell staff about Girls Night Out.
Lucy King, from Genzyme, said: “I decided to sign up for Girls Night Out after seeing Abby and Jenny in their PJs.
“Everyone speaks highly of the Hospice and I know Genzyme has raised funds for it in the past. Now I feel it is time for me to make my contribution.”
Also joining the Genzyme Girls Night Out team is Cathyrn Starling, who is excited about dressing up in her pyjamas and bunny ears to stroll an 11.2-mile route through the streets of Bury St Edmunds, on September 17.
Cathyrn said: “I have personal experience of the support the Hospice provides, which is why I decided to take part.”
The Genzyme team hopes to arrange fundraising events in the lead up to the Girls Night Out, including a cake sale and a ‘wear your PJs to work day’.
Jenny Baskett, Hospice Events and Challenges Fundraiser, said: “I would like to thank the lovely ladies at Genzyme for signing up to the Girls Night Out.
“I look forward to hearing about their fundraising activities in the run up to the walk.”
