Wanting to support St. Vincent’s Hospice, Linwood-based Enva employees, led by Craig Murray, set themselves the task of growing “muttonchops and whiskers” during the month of November in order to raise money for end-of-life patient care.

Workmates Vincent Kiernan, James Moran, John Fern, Paul Scott, Darren Scott, George Carragher, and Craig, set themselves individual challenges to see who could grow the best “mouser”. The guys enjoyed the challenge and now that all of their sponsorship has been counted they have raised an amazing £1068 for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Enva very kindly matched their efforts, so altogether the “Fuzzy Fundraising Team” raised £2136 – a fantastic achievement!

Kirsteen Murray, Chief Executive of St Vincent’s Hospice said “It has been a really tough year for hospice fundraising, with so many large-scale events being unable to go ahead due to COVID restrictions. It is thanks to the incredible efforts of individuals like this that we are able to be there for people in Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire when they need us most and for Enva as a company to double their workers’ contribution is incredibly generous .We are also grateful to all of the partners of those involved who put up with the growing pains!”
