A children’s hospice is set to benefit from a donation of more than £1,500 from Specsavers Ludlow following a two-year fundraising effort.
The team handed over a cheque to Hope House Hospice for £1,660 which has seen staff take part in car boot sales, bike rides and a quiz night. These are just a few of the activities which have helped staff to raise this fantastic amount which will, in turn, help the charity to continue their mission to support life-limited children and their families.
Most recently the store held a children’s fundraising day with face painting, a cake sale and a tombola.
‘Hope House is a cause dear to all of our hearts and it’s been a pleasure to fundraise for them,’ said store director, Nicola Aubrey. ‘We’re absolutely thrilled to be handing over such a large cheque and we hope the money will help the charity to continue with their important work. It’s been a real team effort from everyone and we’ve all thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in all the events.’
'big thank you'
‘We’d like to say a big thank you to Specsavers Ludlow,’ said Emily Jones from Hope House Hospice. ‘This money will make a real difference, helping us to raise the £6.3 million that we need every year. This is mostly done in the community which is why your support means the world to us.’
Hope House offers respite and end-of-life care at their two hospices in Oswestry and Ty Gobaith and/or within the family home. They also provide services such as counselling and actively advocate for the rights of children, young people and carers.'
