Housebuilder raises more than £4,500 for St Barnabas Hospice
Staff at a Lincolnshire housebuilder have raised £4,560 for St Barnabas Hospice.
Chestnut Homes, which is based in Langworth, near Lincoln, has been supporting the hospice for the past 17 years, during which time it has raised almost £20,000 for the charity.
The latest donation came from the proceeds of raffle, which raised £2,280 – a total which was doubled by Chestnut Homes’ Managing Director, David Newton.
The money raised could fund either 900 patient meals, 131 physiotherapy sessions, 37 home visits or a week of specialist care.
It is the second successive year that the housebuilder has raised more than £4,000 for the hospice and David Newton expressed his gratitude to those who donated.
He said: “St Barnabas Hospice offers an invaluable service for its patients and their families, so we’re very proud to be able to once again offer our support.
“We have a special relationship with the hospice and each year we try to raise as much money as we can through our fundraisers and raffles.
“This year we managed to beat our 2016 total of £4,468, which is a fantastic achievement. I’d like to thank everyone who made this possible.”
St Barnabas Hospice is an independent charity which cares for more than 9,000 people in Lincolnshire living with a terminal illness. Every year the hospice needs to raise more than £5.5m to keep providing its vital services.
Chris Wheway, Chief Executive at St Barnabas Hospice, said: “We greatly appreciate the continued support from Chestnut Homes over the years and I’d like to thank them for another generous donation.
“The money they have raised has been invested into further improving the care and comfort of our patients, either at our specialist hospice or allowing us to see and care for patients in their own home.”Back To News
