Cardif Pinnacle's recent sponsorship of the Arsenal X1 match Vs Boreham Wood at Meadow Park helped to raise over £5,000 for The Peace Hospice. Among the crowds watching on 29th July were Hertsmere's Mayor, Peter Knell and Mayor of Borehamwood, Sandra Parnell, plus Head of the Council, Morris Bright.
Cardif Pinnacle has been supporting The Peace Hospice for the last 15 months during which time it has raised almost £25,000 to boost the Hospice's appeal. The insurance firm also supports Boreham Wood Football Club and its PASE scheme having sponsored the club for the last six years.
Sarah Potter, PR Manager for Cardif Pinnacle said "Thanks to the generosity and hard work of Boreham Wood's Chairman and his staff at the club, half of the gate proceeds from the Arsenal X1 match were kindly donated to The Peace Hospice. Sadly The Peace Hospice has just announced that it has to make cuts, so it's more important than ever that the people of Borehamwood come forward, support future events and donate unwanted items to the shop in Shenley Road."
Danny Hunter, Chairman of BWFC said "I'd like to say a big thank you to my staff and to Arsenal Football Club for not only providing a team but for also donating to The Peace Hospice. It's important as a club that we continue to help good local causes. Our work with The Peace Hospice must be ongoing and we hope to continue to create funds and awareness on their behalf."
Boreham Wood Football Club also hosted Borehamwood's first Lights of Love memorial service for The Peace Hospice last December, a service for Borehamwood residents who have lost loved ones. The club will be hosting the second ceremony again this year and hope to attract even bigger crowds.
