Hazlewoods are delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year 2016/17 is Sue Ryder’s Leckhampton Court Hospice.
Over the next 12 months, our staff will participate in a variety of fundraising events to help raise money for the hospice, which as a charity must raise £2 million every year to continue to provide free-of-charge essential services to communities right across Gloucestershire. These services include Inpatient Care, Day Services, Community Services, Family and Bereavement Support, Rehabilitation, Complementary Therapies, Spiritual Care, Hospice at Home and Befriending.
Whether supporting people in the hospice or their own homes, the focus is on quality of life – giving every patient the care and support they need to spend the time they have left in the way they choose.
Leckhampton Court is set in the foot of the Cotswold Hills and surrounded by beautiful countryside, and provides care for people aged 18 and over living with conditions like cancer, heart failure and lung disease.
The hospice offers a range of support, from inpatient care in its 16-bed hospice, to day services and Hospice at Home which helps people stay at home longer and offers respite to carers.
Elise Hoadley, Hospice Director at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, said, “We’re delighted to have Hazlewoods support this year and look forward to working with them to help raise vital funds needed to provide specialist hospice care now and in the future.
“As a charity, partnerships like this are extremely important in not only helping us raise the £2 million needed each year to run the hospice, but also to raise awareness of the work we do with local people with a life limiting condition and their families.”
John Lucas, partner of Hazlewoods Social Committee, said staff would be taking part in fundraising activities throughout the year for Leckhampton Court Hospice including sponsored sporting events, dress down days, a quiz and a staff summer fete.
“We are delighted that Sue Ryder is our Charity of The Year for 2016/2017. We have a long track record of raising significant funds for local charities and we look forward to helping Sue Ryder continue to provide the care and support which benefit so many patients and their families.”
