Volunteers bucket collecting ahead of Sheffield United game for local hospice.We are pleased to welcome volunteers supporting Lindsey Lodge Hospice this Saturday who will be collecting money for the local cause as part of the Mayor’s Appeal Fund.
Joining the volunteers will be the Mayor of Scunthorpe herself, Cllr Helen Rowson who chose Lindsey Lodge to benefit from the Mayor’s Appeal Fund and Scunthorpe United are delighted are to be supporting such an important community facility this festive period.
As an added boost to the charity, logistics company DHL will be supporting the fundraising efforts by providing some of the volunteers that are collecting on the day, while they will also be match funding the collection meaning every pound you give to the collection, DHL will match it to help raise even more funds this festive period.
LINDSEY LODGE HOSPICE
Formed in 1992 on Burringham Road in Scunthorpe as a day care centre, it has since expanded to provide 24 hour in-patient care and rooms for families to stay over.
Although the hospice is financially supported by the NHS, it still needs to raise over £1.6 million this year to meet the £2.4 million running costs- that’s over £4.50 every single minute.
At Christmas time the hospice goes that extra mile making the festive season as joyous as possible by cooking a Christmas dinner for patients and their families and provide entertainment too.
Without your support Lindsey Lodge Hospice would not be the very special place that it is.
Please give generously to the volunteers on Saturday.
