On Friday 9th October, the Ten2Two team here in West Herts, South Bucks and North London went purple for charity. As members of The Hospice of St. Francis’s Corporate Partner Network, we’re delighted to be able to help this wonderful local charity.

The Hospice provides professional support and care for people with life shortening illnesses across the Chilterns and West Herts. Their Go Purple day takes place in Hospice Care Week and aims to encourage people to boost their fundraising whilst having a laugh at the same time.

We definitely took up the challenge, donning our best purple outfits for the day. And we even had a surprise visit from the hospice’s Corporate Fundraising Manager Carolyn Addison, pictured here with the Ten2Two founder, John O’Sullivan.

The fun doesn’t stop there either, as on Monday 12th October, we’re swapping purple wigs for thinking caps and joining in another hospice fundraiser at the Connect Dacorum Big Business Quiz. Ten of us are heading to the Shendish Manor Hotel in Hemel Hempstead for an evening of team building, charity supporting and networking. Wish us luck!
