What a challenging year 2020 was for fundraising our charity shops were closed, open and then closed again our hospice led fundraising events were all cancelled and we had to completely rethink how we would be able to continue to raise the money the hospice needs to run.
We would like to share some good news with you and say another HUGE thank you to everyone who last year made a donation to the hospice via Facebook.
Lots of you set up a fundraiser to mark a birthday where donations were made instead of gifts or what might have been spent on a night out, some were set up in memory of a loved one, or for dry January and some were even set up to watch live music, something we have all been missing. Others donated through the donate button that we added to stories about the care we provide or through their friends Facebook page
All of these donations together in 2020 have raised over £33,000 for the hospice which is simply incredible, thank you to each and everyone one of you who set up a page or made a donation in a year we needed your support more than ever.
You are all amazing and because of that support we are continuing to provide our specialist care alongside our NHS colleagues at the start of what so far has been another challenging year.
