NEWSFLASH! St Peter’s Hospice in Brentry will be the Charity of the Year for our Feeder Road dealership in Bristol.
We’re all really excited to be raising money for St Peter’s Hospice, which cares for adults with life-limiting illnesses.
They do such a great job supporting local people and their families at such a difficult time. We’re aiming to raise at least £3,000 for the charity during the year.
We’ll be doing a variety of fundraisers for the organisation, such as Awareness Days, clothes collections, cake mornings, sweepstakes and raffles.
Edward Smith, Corporate Fundraiser at St Peter’s Hospice in Brentry, said: “We’re thrilled that Wessex Garages has chosen us as its Charity of the Year for 2015. The support is very much appreciated and the money raised throughout the year will help us continue to support people in the local area with life-limiting illnesses.”
As Bristol’s only adult hospice, they care for more than 2,670 patients each year as well as supporting family members.
All services are provided free of charge but this care costs around £18,630 a day. For around £14,000 of that, the hospice relies on the generosity of the local community and corporate support like this is vital.
