A special Christmas gift for Severn Hospice November 21 2013
I’m sure you’ll agree that the hospice movement does some wonderful work. Well, this year I’ve decided to help spread a bit of festive cheer by donating a percentage of the proceeds from our new Christmas range to my local charity, Severn Hospice.
Severn Hospice supports 2,800 people living with life-limiting illnesses across Shropshire and Mid Wales and aims to give them dignity, respect and the best possible care by helping them and their families make the most of every day. The charity has to raise around two thirds of the money needed to run its services and this year that equates to £5.75 million.
A few years ago Severn Hospice helped a friend of mine, who died of cancer aged just 43, and I organised a similar initiative which raised several hundred pounds in his memory. Now, I have created a lovely piece of jewellery to celebrate Christmas which will also enable me to donate money to this important cause.
Our new Christmas range comprises 150 limited edition solid silver angel pendants and charms and for each one we sell I’ll donate £10 to Severn Hospice in the buyer’s name.
Daniel Myatt, fundraising officer at Severn Hospice, is delighted by Anne’s generous offer, saying: “By raising money for Severn Hospice, Anne is not only helping us care for people affected by progressive and terminal illness, but is also directly helping her friends and neighbours by ensuring resources are there should they ever need them.”
