£100 Spend Local Card
At Hospice we’re really grateful for the support we’ve received from the community during these last few months which has enabled us to continue to provide support to all those who need our care despite the challenging situation. But even as we come out of lockdown, we continue to be affected by the impact of COVID-19 as opportunities for fundraising remain limited, not least through the ongoing restrictions on fundraising events. The cancellation of our biennial Ball and Dragon Boats Festival this month will result in a direct loss of over £200,000 in income and donations. For those who can afford it, using their card to “spend local” and then donate the equivalent to us is exactly the boost that we need now more than ever as we still try to adjust to this “new normal” and continue to serve our local community.
