Daniel Cobb’s Battersea and Clapham launch to raise thousands for a local charity
George and Toby Cobb often accompanied their mother Jenny to fundraising events for the Royal Trinity Hospice when they were children. Now, as adults, the brothers are delighted to revive their fundraising role for the charity: returning to the southwest London area where they grew up.
The Royal Trinity Hospice pledge has been devised as part of the launch programme for a brand new Daniel Cobb office, serving Battersea and Clapham. The Webbs Road branch is an addition to long-established offices in Westminster, London Bridge and Kennington.
George and Toby want to hear from up to 30 Battersea and Clapham residents who are willing to display a fun, promotional board - announcing Daniel Cobb’s presence in the area - outside their property for two weeks. In return for each board displayed, George and Toby will donate £100 to support the charity, with the potential to raise up to £3,000 for the Royal Trinity Hospice.
A lifelong association
Royal Trinity Hospice provides free specialist palliative and end of life care for people living in the southwest and central London. Jenny Cobb (Daniel Cobb’s founder) was a powerful advocate for the charity, spending 17 years as a member of its fundraising committee.
George and Toby, who are now directors of Daniel Cobb, look back fondly on time spent with their mother supporting Royal Trinity events. George explains: “In recent years, our experience of the hospice has been based on having family friends who have benefited from all the great work Trinity does”.
Outstanding local charity
The highly respected charity – which has earned an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission - offers a range of support and services. These are designed to allow people with life-limiting illnesses to stay active, independent and emotionally resilient for longer. As well as nurses and doctors, their team includes counsellors, social workers, benefits advisors, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and complementary therapists.
Commenting on Daniel Cobb’s fundraising pledge, Trinity’s Director of Fundraising Anthony Davison said: “The support of local business has been vital to Trinity throughout our 130 year history and remains so today. We’re delighted to be working with the Daniel Cobb team, who we have a long history with, to offer a creative way for people to generate vital donations”.
