The continued relationship between the Peace Hospice in Watford and Pinnacle Insurance plc has given opportunity for Pinnacle staff to present a cheque to help the Hospice's ongoing fundraising efforts.
Donations totalling £545.10 were collected by staff during recent fundraising events at the insurers headquarters in Borehamwood and with final monies collected in, a cheque was presented to Senior Healthcare Assistant, Pat Evans by members of the Pinnacle team earlier this week. The presentation had particular meaning for Marilyn Leach, who works in Pinnacle's administration department, as her late husband 'Dodge' was cared for by Pat and her colleagues at the Hospice.
"We had great fun raising the money including a day of dressing up as vampires and ghouls over Halloween and holding a raffle where local companies helped us out by supplying the prizes.
With over 85% of the Hospice's funding being met by donations it is clear to see how support and financial giving like this is so vital so this marvellous work can continue and flourish."
The Peace Hospice provides specialist palliative care for people from South West Hertfordshire who are facing cancer and other life threatening illnesses. The Hospice is open to all, no matter what their background.
Tara Shaw from the Peace Hospice said:
"We are absolutely delighted in the way that the Pinnacle team pulled together to raise this money for the Hospice. Every penny will be spent directly making a real difference to the people in our care."
Pinnacle's social Committee will be holding an abseiling event as their next Peace Hospice fundraiser.
