Due to personal bereavements of 5 young ladies during 2011/12 Ruth got involved with Colchester and Chelmsford, Essex charities Farleigh Hospice and St Helena Hospice. She crazily jumped out of a plane at 12,000 feet and more sedately took part in a midnight walk to raise money and awareness for both charities.

Ruth continues to support Farleigh hospice, and in February 2015 Marketing Simply took part in the £50 challenge with one of her team shaving her head (Ruth would join in too if she wasn’t getting married in the year). Ruth also hosted a garden tea party along with her team and a selection of gluten free cakes, raising funds for this worthy cause.
Further support in 2015 came when Marketing Simply supported Braxted Park Cookery School who were also taking part in this year’s £50 hospice challenge. Ruth and the team joined in the school’s pancake tossing challenge, our very own Ali won Overall Tosser of the Year and gets to go to the cookery school for a lesson!
