Conall Thorneycroft, Natalie Preen and Rebecca Jude present a cheque for £1,095.80 to Nicola Keen, a representative from St Luke’s Hospice
Lang Town & Country has raised more than £1,000 for St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth by holding two fantastic charity events.
St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth is an independent charity that provides specialist advice and support to people with progressive life-limiting illnesses in the city and surrounding areas.
Natalie Preen, manager of our Plymstock office, and key account manager Rebecca Jude collected a remarkable £467.70 by creating and selling cupcakes and other delicious treats.
The pair demonstrated their brilliant baking skills, which were certainly appreciated by the public if the phenomenal amount of money is anything to go by!

Meanwhile, Rebecca and Conall Thorneycroft, sales consultant in our Land & News Homes team, held a hugely-successful quiz night and raised a grand total of £628.10.
Natalie, Rebecca and Conall proudly handed over a cheque for £1,095.80 to Nicola Keen, a representative from St Luke’s Hospice.
Rebecca said: “We’re really proud to continue to support St Luke’s Hospice. It’s an amazing charity that really needs our help so it can be there for people and families who need support. Natalie’s cakes were certainly a triumph, and the total raised from the quiz night was even more than we could have hoped for.”
Lang Town & Country supports a number of other fantastic causes including CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families.

Natalie and her colleagues raised more than £170 by hosting a raffle and also selling hand-made Christmas wine jumpers – all of in aid of Young Lives Vs. Cancer. The top prize in the November 20 draw was a delicious Christmas Log Cake and Dundee Cake!
The team has big plans in 2020 to raise even more money for local charities which include, potentially, a sponsored sky dive.
Rebecca added: “There’s talk of the whole Plymstock office doing a sky-dive for St Luke’s. We’ve got our directors to thank for that idea! I don’t feel too nervous about jumping out of a plane, though, I’ve always wanted to do it.”
