Richborough Estates raise over £8000 for St Basils taking part in Hike for Homeless

St Basils business partners Richborough Estates have now raised over £8000 for St Basils after taking part in our Hike for Homeless event sponsored by IM Properties on Saturday 24th July. This is an amazing total anyway but especially so when their target was £500. They’ve absolutely smashed it!

Here’s what Richborough Estates had to say on their blog:   

“Our blisters and aching muscles have (almost) healed, but your incredible generosity continues!

We’re thrilled to have now raised more than £8,000 for St Basils, after taking part in the charity’s annual Hike for Homeless event in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.

The funds will enable the Birmingham-based charity to help more than 1,600 young people out of homelessness – at a cost of £5 per day.

Paul Campbell, Chief Executive at Richborough Estates said: “A massive thank you to everyone who has donated, and a special mention to Redrow for their very generous sponsorship.

“We’re really proud to be able to support St Basils’ work to help young people find and keep a home.Richborough estates 4

“Well done to all our hikers too. I was part of our 24-mile team and it was tough going as well as a brilliant experience. We’re already planning for next year’s event.”

Richborough Estates entered two teams into the 6 and 24-mile events. Our hikers were: Paul Campbell, Dean Knight, Charlotte Lewis and her dog Molly, Briony Stenhouse, Marc Wilson, Nick Jones and Tom Ball.”
