In what marks their 25th year of support for local charity Dove House Hospice, Rollits Solicitors celebrated another year of fundraising success, with £2660 raised from charitable activities in 2018.

Funds were raised through Rollits’ annual golf day, as organised by Director of Marketing and Client Relations Pat Coyle, alongside the firm’s participation in the hospice’s annual Make a Will Fortnight. During this time, solicitor Emma Fawke accepted a number of appointments, free of charge, in return for a donation made to Dove House Hospice.  

Speaking after the presentation for the total raised, Pat Coyle said: “Rollits are delighted to be able to support a worthy local charity in Dove House, and we know that the proceeds that we have raised over 2018 will help to enable their vital care for so many across Hull and East Yorkshire. The hospice has been a charity partner and an annual presence at our golf day for many years, and in more recent times we have also been a keen supporter of their Make a Will Fortnight. So many people across the community are touched by the specialist care that the hospice provides. We hope that this contribution will ensure that Dove House can continue to support the many individuals and families that need this care the most.”   

Jethro Shearring, Fundraising Coordinator at Dove House, added: “At Dove House Hospice all the care that we provide is free of charge, though it is not free to give. It is only through the generosity of the community and organisations such as Rollits that we are able to support our patients and those around them.

“We are incredibly grateful for the unwavering support of all at Rollits, whose contributions over the last 25 years have enabled us not only to continue to provide our specialist care, but to expand upon our services. 2018 saw another fantastic year of support with an amazing total raised. On behalf of the staff, patients and their families at Dove House we would like to thank Pat, Emma and all at Rollits for their continued support.”
