At St Benedict’s, we are always keen to hear from individuals, groups and companies who can volunteer their time and expertise to support our work. Whether it is helping us maintain our extensive gardens, volunteering in one of our shops or supporting a fundraising event, there are many different ways people can volunteer and we know that giving a few hours of time can make a huge difference.
Support from the local business community is so important to St Benedict’s Hospice. Whether is it donations of money, gifts in kind, sponsorship of or participation in events, pro-bono services, charity of the year adoptions or employee time it all makes a huge difference to what we are able to provide for our patients and their families.
Here are links to some of our recent and ongoing business supporters who have all helped in one way or another and we thank them for what they have done. If your business is interested in knowing more about how to support St Benedict’s Hospice then please get in touch with our Fundraising Department by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us on 0191 512 8435, we will be delighted to hear from you.
An example of the difference you can make is a recent visit from a team from Barclays Doxford Park, who spent an afternoon at the hospice. The team planted winter bedding plants provided by St Benedict’s Hospice charity and tidied up in our courtyard area.
Barclays team leader Stacey said after their visit, “We had a great afternoon and it feels good to be able to help out in the community again after the Covid-19 pandemic.” Following their visit, one of our patients sat out in the garden the following morning and said she found it “so peaceful” and was delighted to see the transformation.
