St Helena Hospice Wills Month June 2019
21 October 2019 by James Bird
Once again Fisher Jones Greenwood took part in the St Helena Hospice Wills month Campaign back in June this year (hopefully many of you saw the last blog for it). With the campaign for the year having finished, the Hospice is in the process of allocating the generous donations.
The Hospice have now announced the grand total raised by the campaign. Over £16,500 has been raised which is a spectacular sum. This is also a significant increase on last year’s donations which totalled about £11,000. The figures above are undoubtedly impressive and the best news is that due to gift aid the Hospice will receive even more from the donations.
At Fisher Jones Greenwood, we were thrilled to hear that our firm managed to contribute a huge £9,978. That means about 60% of the total amount raised came through supporters of the cause who used Fisher Jones Greenwood.
The sum raised was an incredible amount and we would like to thank everyone who took part in such a worthwhile cause with their generous donations. If you didn’t manage to participate in the scheme this year then keep an eye out next year to see if the Hospice will run a similar scheme. Of course if we are participating next year then we will of course publicise this as well so make sure to follow any announcements on our social media platforms.
Many will be aware of the work which St Helena Hospice does with patients providing end of life care when they have been diagnosed with serious illnesses. However, St Helena Hospice helps with many more aspects ranging from counselling services for family members to providing at-home care. They have a wide range of services provided by professionals but as a charity, fundraising and donations are the only way they can continue to operate.

For those of you who are keen supporters of the Hospice, you may also have seen that they have recently announced the snowdrop campaign whereby you can purchase a beautiful metallic snowdrop which will be on display in the Beth Chatto Gardens in February before being available to take home as a symbol of remembrance for loved ones.
