Today is the last day of Hospice Care Week, here’s Gillian Niven she thinks it’s extra special! As a member of the Council of Management Gillian says it’s a privilege to be involved and is very proud of the support that she, her colleagues and friends have been able to do thus far. As an independent hospice, they need to raise over £11,000 every day just to keep their services running.
Being in Partnership with Strathcarron Hospice…
Supporting Strathcarron Hospice in your workplace is a great way to build camaraderie whilst raising money to support your local community and potentially your own friends, family, colleagues and customers.
The hospice team will help you to support any fundraising initiatives you wish to put in place such as team building or motivational staff exercises. Organising a fundraising event can be a great way for staff to work together to reach their joint goal and can encourage some healthy competition between different teams.
Here at Drummond Laurie we try and support where we can by volunteering at can collections or events. In the office we hold regular coffee mornings or soup lunches. We enter teams into events such as the recent 10K and next year already have some names signed up for the new Stirling Marathon to support the hospice, much more on that to follow!
Get involved, support your local hospice in your community for without it where would we be!
