A Run for the Rossendale Hospice

Tricketts Insurance Brokers director, Janine Packman was inspired to run for the Rossendale Hospice after learning more about how the Rossendale hospice services meet the needs of individuals in our community.  She commented “the Hospice is ‘such a local treasure; their services are so diverse and they provide vital support.’ She said, ‘the money raised really does make a difference to the lives of local people.’

Although initially nervous, Janine took part in the Paris Marathon on 3 April 2016, completing the gruelling 26.2 mile run through the French capital in 4 hours and 50 minutes. ‘Running in 21 c was exhausting – something I hadn’t been used to in Rossendale.  After 20 miles I was really tired and stopped every mile to rehydrate but knowing how generous my sponsors had been spurred me on to finish..  It was an amazing experience.

Janine smashed her £1000 target and raised £1400 via supporting friends and business contacts.  Tricketts Insurance Brokers, rounded up the amount to a perfect £2000!!

In recognition of her fund raising efforts, Rossendale Hospice recently presented Janine with her gold leaf which forms part of Rossendale Hospice Giving Tree – see gold leaf.

Furthermore, as dedicated supporters of the Hospice, Janine and Roger have been invited to join the Corporate Ambassadors Group.  This is where leaders from local companies of different industries come together to discuss how collectively they can help support Hospice activities and connect them further with local businesses.
