Collaborating with our local business community to celebrate 40 years of Hospiscare

Hospiscare was built for the community, by our community and we have never felt this as strongly as in our 40th anniversary year

Our charity has been so fortunate to be supported by so many fantastic businesses over its lifetime and to mark this special birthday, we collaborated with our incredible local business community to form the 40 Club.

61 local businesses joined the 40 Club and each pledged to raise £1,000 for Hospiscare in 2022. With three months left to reach the collective fundraising total of £61,000, these dedicated organisations are well on their way to beating their targets.

40 Club members have enjoyed regular networking events, enabling them to strengthen ties within the local business community as well as share their motivations for supporting our local hospice.

In November, all of our 40 Club members will come together for an awards ceremony to celebrate the diverse ways in which they have supported Hospiscare over the year. From awards for highest fundraising totals to best collaboration within the club, we look forward to celebrating their commitment to local end-of-life care.

Although the 40 Club was born in our 40th year, it has now become a permanent offering between our charity and the local business community. From September 2022, we will be recruiting organisations to join for 2023.

All of the fantastic organisations who have supported Hospiscare this year have been invited to join again for 2023 and we are excited to announce that several businesses have already re-pledged their support!

Ellie Williams, Hospiscare Corporate Officer and project leader of the 40 Club, says “It has been an incredible experience collaborating with so many wonderful businesses in our 40th anniversary year.

“Although we talk about businesses, the 40 Club is really all about people. It’s incredible to see their personal passion and creativity shine through. It’s also incredibly humbling to hear members sharing their own personal stories of Hospiscare and why the charity matters to them. This truly is at the heart of the 40 Cub and I feel so privileged to continue this project into 2023 and beyond.”
