We are very excited to announce that Severn Hospice are our charity of the year!
Following years of weekly dress down days, Summer BBQs and Autumn Balls, organised for the charity by our wonderful Executive PA Lesley Ellis, this year we have launched a charitable committee – NT Together – to raise funds for Severn Hospice on an even bigger scale in 2019.
We will be holding fundraising events each month to raise money for the charity that requires £11.3 million each year to provide its fantastic services. Severn Hospice provides specialist care and support to local families living with incurable illnesses. The charity has two hospices, one based in Telford and the other in Shrewsbury. In addition to the two hospices, the charity care for four out of five people at home and provide day services as well.
We want to help Severn Hospice to reach and exceed their annual costs of £11.3 million. The charity needs to raise £2 for every £3 they spend on caring for local families so we are looking forward to helping as much as we can. For every £1 that we can raise, 88p will go directly to caring for local families with the other 12p being used on further fundraising.
With over 34,000 local people cared for since Severn Hospice began, we are thrilled to be supporting such a fantastic charity.
The first event we will be holding is a Valentine’s Day bake sale in partnership with local bakery Planet Doughnut where our employees are invited to ‘share the love’ and enjoy variety of delicious Network Telecom branded doughnuts.
