Roll of Honour
Each year our Community Champions raise hundreds of thousands of pounds.
A big thank you to all of you.
The diverse community we serve leads to exciting and varied fundraising activities. Here is just a small selection to inspire you to join in!
A group of staff from local Waitrose supermarkets recently visited Princess Alice Hospice to meet with Chief Executive, Nicki Shaw and hand over £9647.39. The donation was part of the larger pot of £18,000 raised when staff from stores in Putney, Weybridge, Hersham and the south east region got together and cycled the 27 mile Olympic road race route in September 2011.
Bonnie Rolfe from Surbiton and her friend Charlotte Richards are climbing Kilimanjaro in memory of Bonnie’s Mum and have set a huge target of £19,000, with the aim of covering a day of Hospice services. They are at over £31,000. The girls are inspiring and are inspired in their quest by Bonnie’s mum’s strength of character.
Staff at M&S Kingston's Per Una Department have raised over £2,000 through events, raffles, and selling Hospice lottery tickets and scratch cards.
The Gym Group, Kingston upon Thames. Everyone who became a member had the option of adding a £1 donation to the Hospice. Uptake for this donation method proved popular and over £1,000 was raised.
Fathers’ Day at the The Bentall Centre, Kingston saw a host of Stormtroopers from UK GARRISON and a dedicated band of Hospice staff and volunteers man a bucket collection in exchange for photos, courtesy of Snappy Snaps. Together the team collected a brilliant £767. This was repeated at Christmas 2011 with Super Heroes and hundreds more was raised!
Staff at Sainsburys in Surbiton, Chessington and Epsom (Kiln Lane) have chosen the Hospice as their charity of the year and will shortly be setting up a host of events and campaigns to bring in much needed funds.
Our £16K challenge girls led by Chelsea Parsons and Ruth Edwards have exceed their £16,000.
The fourth Mundays Fun Run earlier this summer saw 167 dedicated supporters and runners fill Bushy Park, Hampton Court and generate £2,900. Mundays also have a few golfers amongst their number and their Golf Society has secured over £5,000 this year for Princess Alice Hospice.
A team of three fundraisers has already beaten their £3,000 target! The 3 Peaks challenge was completed in early July by friends Hayley Rogerson & Diane Ralph in loving memory of their friend Sarah, the wife of Luke Kiernan. Luke did not walk, but he was an essential member of the team offering encouragement and support.
The team wants to send a huge thank you to all event participants, be they Towpath Trundlers, Hike the Hillers or Midnight Walkers. We also send thanks to community fundraisers who have opened their gardens, hosted parties and concerts and a host of other amazing events! Together you have made a huge difference to patients’ lives. We look forward to seeing many more of you in 2012!
