Gracewell of Salisbury care home has recently raised £207.60 for local charity, Salisbury Hospice.
Fundraised during a raffle held by residents, their families, and team members at Gracewell of Salisbury, the event proved to be a great success.
With donated prizes from a number of generous local businesses, the money raised will make a big difference to the charity.
Providing specialist palliative care to 1,000 local people with life-limiting conditions every single year, the hospice largely relies upon the kindness of the community to continue to deliver their vital care and support.
At Gracewell of Salisbury, the care home has recently entered a wonderful partnership with the hospice as part of their ’40 4 4 Club’.
A local group of 40 businesses, this year they are aiming to jointly raise £40,000 for the charity, in commemoration of the hospice’s 40th year.
And, in celebration of this fantastic show of community spirit, the care home wanted to kickstart their fundraising efforts and play their part towards this goal.
Speaking on the contribution of the care home, Louise Compton, Corporate Fundraiser at Salisbury Hospice, said:
“We are extremely grateful to the staff and residents at Gracewell of Salisbury, their kind support will directly benefit patients in need of end-of-life care. Support from our local community ensures we can continue to provide specialist care to individuals and their families at a time when they need it most. On behalf of the whole team at Salisbury Hospice, I would like to thank Gracewell for this generous contribution.”
Carol Brewster, Home Admissions Advisor at Gracewell of Salisbury, added:
“We were thrilled to be able to support Salisbury Hospice Charity with our raffle fundraiser, they provide a vital service to many within the local community, and it’s a real privilege to be part of a wonderful group of businesses that are eager to help the charity in whatever way possible. At Gracewell of Salisbury we place great importance on our fundraising efforts- all our team, residents, and their families, love to get involved.”
