Liberty staff stretch legs across South Yorkshire to raise money for local hospice
Staff across the South-Yorkshire based Liberty Speciality Steels took part in the business’ inaugural ‘Legs of Steel’ walk on Saturday (13 July), raising money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Over 50 people including friends and family walked the 15-mile route from Liberty’s site in Stocksbridge to the finish at its Rotherham headquarters. The route took in some of South Yorkshire’s trademark countryside and passed the historic Grade I listed Wentworth Woodhouse in the village of Wentworth.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is currently Liberty Speciality Steel’s principal charity of choice, with the walk raising over £2,000.
Alexandra Bee, Internal Communications Manager said: “The walk was a great opportunity to bring colleagues together outside of work while raising money for a worthy local cause, which provides much needed support for severely-ill children and their families.
“Hopefully the ‘Legs of Steel’ walk will become a permanent fixture in Liberty Speciality Steels’ calendar, providing our staff’s legs aren’t too sore this morning!”
Corporate Fundraiser for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice Julie Hampson said: “We are so thankful to everyone who took part in the walk. Your support helps us care for children and young adults whose lives are sadly just too short, both in their own homes and at our hospice in North Anston.
“We need £11,000 a day to keep our doors open, and only around 10% of our funding is from the government, so support like this really does make a difference, and means we can be there for families during incredibly difficult times.”
