We’re delighted to announce that through our charitable board initiative that we kicked off last year, we donated a total of £940 to St Gemma’s Hospice for 2017, providing a much needed boost to the hospice’s ongoing fundraising – thank you to all our fabulous customers!
This has been achieved through collaboration with our customers, and we were very touched when one of our lovely clients rewarded a favour we did or him with a voluntarily extra donation – what amazing people live within our community!
We are going to continue with this charitable scheme this year, so for every board we put up we will donate £10 to St Gemma’s Hospice.
St Gemma’s supported over 3000 local people 2016/17 and the community team of nurses visited over 5,400 people in their own homes. We were shocked to hear that it costs £25K every day (!) to run their full services – that’s over £9million a year. The work that these guys do is so valuable, so we’re passionate about doing what we can to contribute.
Thanks to all our customers who have made this happen throughout 2017 and here’s to a great 2018 raising even more cash for the team.
