‘Hospice Awareness Month’ proves a massive success

During the month of June, St David’s Hospice appealed to the community for help and to join the hospice in celebrating ‘Hospice Awareness Month’ which promotes the significant work undertaken by St David’s along with more than two hundred hospices nationwide.
The local charity received an overwhelming response from the community, with sporting clubs, businesses, schools and local supporters getting behind the campaign. The idea was for supporters of the Hospice to host a coffee morning in month of June.
Hosts received an information pack with ideas and tips to assist in planning their coffee morning which proved to be a helpful resource. The pack was designed and printed free of charge from local print business Design2Print.
Andrew Everley, Community and Events Fundraising Manager said:
“After meeting with Jamie at Design2Print he really hit the mark with designing the theme to the pack, and brought our ideas to life. The bespoke professional finish was a huge factor in the success of the campaign and we cannot thank the local business enough for their support of this campaign. It made a huge difference.”
“The response was so great that it didn’t stop at coffee mornings. We had an array of fundraising events during the month, from sponsored shaves, Zumba parties, race nights, pamper days and bucket collections, all to raise awareness and vital funds for the Hospice.”
Andrew continued:
“I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part. Hospice Awareness Month proved to be a great success and laid the foundations for the campaign to grow. We are already looking forward to how we can build on it next June.”
To date the campaign has raised over £10,000 for St David’s Hospice with donations still coming in.
St David’s Hospice is a local charity, delivering specialist care to local people who are living with advanced illnesses or those in need of end of life care and their families. Care provided by the hospice is completely free of charge to the community of North West Wales.
This year however, it will cost more than £3 million to provide all of the hospices services. Since just 14% of funding is received from the NHS, it means that the Hospice is extremely dependant fundraising from the local communities.
