Charity Bowl for November and December 2018 – Greenwich & Bexley Hospice
26 November 0201
The Greenwich & Bexley Hospice is a local charity, caring for over 2,500 people every year, at home, in care homes, in Hospice beds, in the Day Hospice and in hospital. Only around a third of the funding needed comes from the NHS. This means they need to fundraise £5m every year from local people, businesses and organisations.
The Hospice was co-founded by Pat Jeavons and Dan Sturrock in 1985 and now has 19 inpatient beds caring for over 350 people every year. The Day Hospice supports up to 75 local people each week. There is also a community nursing team, and the Hospice also works in partnership with the staff of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to help those coping with a terminal illness in hospital.
All donations in the Charity Bowl over these two months, together with the Midnight Service collections this year, will go this local charity. More information is available in the Magazine or on-line at www.communityhospice.org.uk
