Why are you taking part in this year’s Corporate Challenge?

Helen and Phil both admire and respect the care only a hospice can provide.  We are delighted with the response to Wendy’s Legacy (our ongoing service to repurpose jewellery in memory of a loved one.  (https://­www.­ainswo­rt­hje­wellers.­com/­blog/­category/­service-posts)) We see this as an extension of the support we can provide to the most wonderful cause and celebrate the joy and reassurance jewellery can bring at significant moments in our lives.

What do you have planned for this year’s challenge?

We have a very beautiful red gemstone in celebration of the hospice red brand colours.  This stunning pear shaped red spinel measures 7 x 5mm and weighs 0.86ct.  We will raffle tickets at £10 each for the winner to also receive our personal design service and CAD rendering for this to be made into the jewellery of their choice for our standard fee.
