Longfield Community Hospice is celebrating turning 35 this year by asking local businesses to join a newly formed ‘35 Club’ to raise money to fund its vital services in the community.
The Minchinhampton-based charity is looking for 35 local businesses to join this exclusive club and pledge to raise £1,000 in 2023.
Membership of the club will offer a range of benefits, including business breakfasts, teambuilding and volunteering opportunities and free places in events like half marathons and skydives.
All funds raised will help the hospice carry on providing free care, 365 days a year, for adults across Gloucestershire living with a life-limiting illness. As well as providing Hospice at Home care, the hospice also offers help and support to patients, families and carers through a range of Wellbeing services at its base in Minchinhampton.
Louise Cook, Head of Fundraising and Marketing, explained: “It’s incredible to think that Longfield turns 35 in 2023, following an appeal launched in 1988 to raise £500,000. What better way to mark this occasion than by creating an exclusive club where local businesses can work together to support their local hospice, by pledging to raise £1,000 in 2023? In the current financial climate, we need your help now more than ever.
“Do get in touch if you’re interested in the idea and would like to find out more. We’ll be here to help and advise at every step of the way.”
