Charities for 2017
Every penny of the total sum contributed by members of the public this year will, as usual, be shared between several charities.
The Trustees are pleased to announce the charities to be supported this year are
Severn Hospice (half of the amount donated)
For nearly 30 years Severn Hospice has been the region’s leading provider of specialist palliative and end of life care. As one of the busiest hospices in the UK our mission is to provide the best care and a better life for people living with an incurable illness, and those important to them. The loving care we provide goes beyond the four walls of our buildings as we care for more patients than ever before in the comfort of their own home. All of the care we provide at Severn Hospice is free of charge, but not without cost. It is thanks to the unwavering support of the people of Shropshire and Mid Wales that our caring teams are able to be there when it matters most for those who need our help. We are immensely proud and grateful for the long relationship between our hospice and the Rotary Clubs in the area. Their commitment and dedication to raising funds for charities like our hospice is truly admirable.
