St Peter & St James Hospice & Continuing Care Centre
Through-out the summer months we have some excellent days out at local village days and fetes, running our 3x5 competition in order to raise money for a very deserving local charity. Chip Chuck Ltd director Madeline Wall explains why we chose St Peter & St James;
“We have close ties with St Peter and St James Hospice and I know how hard they work, as a small charity, to continually raise the money needed for the wonderful work they do. Most people I know locally have had the experience of a loved family member, friend or colleague benefit from care at this very special place. Chip Chuck Ltd is extremely proud to help.”
Since April 2015 the total we have raised for St Peter & St James is; £710
A brief statement from this wonderful local charity -
We want to make a positive difference to the experience of everybody in our community who faces death or bereavement, by offering choice and support through our expert care, knowledge and understanding.
We care for patients from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and the surrounding villages. Last year, we provided care for more than 600 patients and their families. All of our Hospice services are free of charge and we receive less than 14% of our funding from the Government. This means we rely on our local community for providing 86% of our funding and have to raise more than £2.6 million every year through fundraising. That's £7,200 every single day.
