When it comes to showcasing true courage and determination, it doesn't get more impressive than our very own Operations Director, Samantha Hilton, taking on the thrilling challenge of abseiling down one of Sheffield's tallest buildings. But this impressive feat wasn't just for personal glory; it was all in the name of charity, specifically, St. Luke's - Sheffield's Hospice.
A Heartfelt Dedication to St. Luke's Hospice
For WeBid Consult Ltd., St. Luke's Hospice holds a unique place in our hearts. The reason is deeply personal. In April, we lost our Financial Director, Peter Stone, to cancer. Peter wasn't just a colleague; he was the beloved husband of our Managing Director, Stephanie Yeadon. In addition, Peter was a loving father to our very own Samantha Hilton.
The cruelty of this disease hit close to home once again in 2022 when Sam's beloved mother lost her battle with cancer. This heartbreaking loss deeply affected our WeBid Consult family and emphasised the need for continued support to those affected by cancer.
Sam's Inspiring Drive to Make a Difference
In typical Sam style, she channeled her grief and love for her family into something incredible. She decided to abseil down one of Sheffield's tallest buildings, and all for a noble cause – St. Luke's Hospice. This courageous act wasn't just about conquering a fear of heights; it was about giving back, raising awareness, and supporting the organisation that helps countless families like hers through difficult times.
The Spectacular Success of Sam's Abseil
Sam's abseil event was nothing short of remarkable. It brought together friends, colleagues, and supporters from near and far who rallied behind her cause. The outpouring of love and donations was overwhelming, and it's with great pride that we announce that the total funds raised for St. Luke's exceeded an astonishing £3,000!
This incredible sum will undoubtedly make a significant difference in the lives of those supported by St. Luke's Hospice. It will help provide vital care, support, and comfort to individuals and families navigating the challenging journey of dealing with terminal illnesses.
Our Ongoing Pride and Amazement
As a company, we couldn't be prouder of Samantha Hilton. Her personal courage and unwavering commitment to making a difference serve as an inspiration to all of us at WeBid Consult.
Sam's abseil for St. Luke's Hospice was a breathtaking demonstration of bravery and a heartfelt tribute to the memory of her father, mother, and all the families touched by cancer. We extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who supported this noble cause, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with St. Luke's as we strive to make a positive impact in our community.
