This year to celebrate 40 years of Salisbury Hospice offering palliative care in Salisbury and the surrounding area, Salisbury Hospice Charity is working with local businesses to raise an amazing £40,000.
This initiative was set up by the charity’s Corporate Fundraiser, Louise Compton who says:
“I thought this would be a great way to bring businesses and their employees together after spending such a long time apart due to COVID 19, whilst at the same time raising vital funds for our wonderful local Hospice.
It is easy to become a member, simply contact Louise@salisburyhospicecharity.org.uk who will work with your staff on how best to raise the £1,000 target.
Since 1st January 23 members of the club, including mySalisbury, have been busy fundraising and donating to the campaign; and it’s not too late to join, with the last date to ‘sign up’ the 31st December 2021”.
“I would like to thank all the current members who have already raised funds in many different ways from two businesses walking virtually from Lands end to John O’Groats through to one company holding an intercompany ‘pull up for pounds’ day – you can view their video here https://fb.watch/6ciY4yBngG/
I am delighted to announce that at our 6-month mark we have already raised £10,000! These funds will go towards the running costs of the Hospice and the £1.5m Salisbury Hospice Charity aim to raise every year”.
