Liz Hancock’s Lake District Mighty Hike

June 16th, 2017 by

Tomorrow, our very own Liz Hancock will be taking part in the Lake District Mighty Hike to support the fantastic charity Macmillan Cancer Support.  Whilst the rest of us will be enjoying our weekend in the sun, possibly with a BBQ, cold glass of wine or beer, Liz will be hiking her way through 25.1 miles of the Borrowdale and Langdale Valleys from Keswick through to Ambleside.

 

Liz has been preparing and training for this event for the past 4 months.  Instead of enjoying the start of summer and tucking into all the yummy Easter eggs and treats we have had in the office, Liz has been extremely dedicated and committed to the cause.

 

We are all so proud of you for supporting this excellent charity, we know that the money that you have raised will go on and make a massive difference to someone’s life.

 

We have no doubt that you will do it Liz and we can be sure that at the finishing line, there will a large cold glass of wine waiting for you.  We also promise to save you some of the chocolates in the office.

Good luck!!

A Great Big Thank You!

December 22nd, 2016 by

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Jumper Day and helped us raise money for the fantastic charity Save the Children.  We all had great fun trying to outdo each other’s Christmas jumper and we are so proud that we raised money for such a great cause.  Thanks again to each of you who donated as it will mean so much to so many children around the world. https://christmasjumperday.org/

CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY FRIDAY 9TH DECEMBER

December 5th, 2016 by

Here at Alexander Hancock we take Christmas very very seriously, Grainne plans her present list from July onwards, Natalie is the only one allowed to dress the tree, Liz keeps DHL, UPS and Amazon in business with her deliveries, and Anneliese? Well she is a bit Bah Humbug about it all, but we ignore her… basically Christmas is, in our opinion, THE best time of the year but…

We are incredibly aware that this time of year is very difficult for others, particularly those children who are living in appalling conditions in Refugee Camps, so we are having a CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY in our office on Friday 9th December to support SAVE THE CHILDREN. (www.savethechildren.org.uk)

The aim is to raise money to provide warm clothing for those children to help them keep warm through the winter, buy them food to keep up their strength and most importantly of all, provide a safe environment where they can be free from trafficking, slavery and the nightmares of war.

So we will donate £2 for every single person who comes into our offices on that day suitably attired in a Christmas Jumper and we will make an additional donation to the charity in our name.

Please feel free to pop in, have a mince pie and have a photo taken in your favourite winter woolly!

But if you can’t come in but want to support this amazing charity please text:

TEAMALEXHAN to 70050 and you will donate £2 to Save The Children

 

Thank you

LIFE AFTER THE EU REFERENDUM

July 4th, 2016 by

Nobody likes uncertainty but here is the thing; it is (as far as we can tell) a done deal and whatever your opinion, right now, this is the world in which need to operate today.

I am not going to hash through the pros and negatives of Leaving or Staying as quite honestly we have been talked at for the last 3 months and we are all tired of listening to so called experts who have not worked at ground level for a long long time, if ever. (more…)

Happy 90th BirthdaySo our Queen is 90, and I for one would like to offer my sincere congratulations to a true icon of the Modern Age. The Queen stands for all that I believe to be amazing about this country; first our incredible history, unmatched by any other country on this planet and the reason why millions flock to our country every year to gape and photograph our landmarks, and her Majesty is our greatest asset of all.

Today marks the hundredth year anniversary of the start of one of the bloodiest wars of our time. When war was declared on Germany, millions, literally millions of our boys signed up to protect our way of life, and as our women waved them off, they all thought they would be home by Christmas…
