7formation raise £4,600 for local cancer hospice

7formation raised £1600 for Sue Ryder’s Thorpe Hall during a summer ball which celebrated the company’s tenth year in operation.

The Corby-based business held the charity event at Barnsdale Hall Hotel and invited 150 of its closest friends and clients. As well as selling tickets, the team raised money by holding a raffle and playing Heads and Tales with the generous guests.

To add to the occasion, 7formation also arranged for a special guest to attend on the night. Last year the management team launched a campaign to try and track down the girl that featured on their corporate branding which was created ten years ago at the company’s inception.  After some detective work from the team, Gina Lloret was located all the way in Barcelona and agreed to attend the ball as a surprise for all the staff. Her attendance was incredibly well received and was a great addition to the night’s celebrations.

After speeches for from MD, Steve Rowell, and Sue Ryder Community Fundraiser, Nilesh Patel, a cake was cut by Gina and a band ended the celebrations.

Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice is the only specialist palliative care inpatient unit in Peterborough. The team care for the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of its patients, whether they come to the charity for symptom management as part of their palliative care or for end-of-life care. That care can be given in their 20-bed hospice or in the community thanks to Thorpe Hall Hospice at Home team – and also extends to the loved ones of our patients too.

7formation was set up in 2008 and having survived the difficulties of the recession, has since gone on to build a healthy portfolio of works with numerous high profile clients, including Decathlon, your Clothing the Holiday Inn.

Steve Rowell commented: “Reaching our tenth birthday is a huge milestone for the team here at Corby and is a result of lots of hard work and dedication; to combine this with raising money for our corporate charity partner, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall, seemed obvious. Not only did we get to thank our clients and supply chain for all their support over the years, but we also got to thank our fantastic staff who make 7formation the successful business it is today.”
