Banks Long & Co’s annual Monopoly Challenge helps to boost St Barnabas Hospice funds.

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Banks Long & Co’s annual Monopoly Challenge helps to boost St Barnabas Hospice funds.Lincoln professionals raised more than £830 for a city-based charity, by blowing thousands of pounds of “funny money” during  a frenzied property spending spree!

Chartered surveyor Banks Long & Co’s annual Monopoly Challenge proved an irresistible temptation for fellow businesses, which stumped-up plenty of cash for St Barnabas Hospice, in order to take on the competition. Their generosity was topped-up by further donations.

And Banks Long & Co Director Tim Bradford took great pleasure in presenting St Barnabas Hospice Fundraising Manager Veronica Brien with a handful of cheques and the winner’s trophy to accountant Steve Tointon, who is a Director at Saul Fairholm Ltd.

The Monopoly Challenge, which took place at The Green Dragon pub, saw the winners of six first-round games make it through to the nail biting final.

Collingham builder and reigning champion Jerome Wright found himself facing his brother Steff Wright, while Nicholson’s accountant Jim Carratt (a finalist two years running) pitted his skills against Lindum Group Finance Director Herman Kok.

New champion Steve Tointon  put-up a fierce fight against his wife, Melanie, who also happens to be Lincoln’s Sheriff, but  who was unable to use her powers to keep him in jail for long enough!

Mr Bradford said: “The Monopoly Challenge has been running for 30 years and is always a really popular event.  We are particularly pleased that we were able to support the valuable work done by St Barnabas Hospice in this way.

Hospice Fundraising Manager Veronica Brien said: “On behalf of all at St Barnabas,  I’d like to thank everyone for their support. Our Day Therapy Service is solely dependent upon voluntary donations and costs in excess of £940,000 to provide countywide.

Day Therapy is open to anyone over the age of 18 who has a life-limiting condition or uncertain diagnosis. We are here to help from the point of diagnosis and help people to live their lives through their journey and offer a tailored programme of care.
As well as offering occupational therapy, physiotherapy and complementary therapy, the service also offers advice on fatigue management, anxiety management, breathlessness and nutrition. It also provides gentle exercise and relaxation classes, arts and craft and music groups which have proved very very popular.
