To have so many businesses involved not only raise much needed funds, but also engage lots of people locally and raise awareness of the vitally important work of the Hospice and the fact that they touch so many lives in a really positive way. Most of us have at some point experienced friends or family with life-limiting illnesses and it’s both humbling and inspiring to see the amazing support for people that is provided by our wonderful hospice.”

They also know that they’ve made a huge contribution to the continued work the hospice does in helping people living with a life-limiting illnesses.”
