At KWL, supporting our local community is at the heart of what we do, both through our services and external charity work. We recently provided a welcome boost to Dove House Hospice, a celebrated charity which has an immeasurable impact on people’s lives. Through our donations we hope to aid their vital services during what has been an especially challenging year for all charities.
We have consistently strived to help make a positive difference to Dove House. From raffles to race nights, our contribution efforts have raised over £4,000.
We are also proud to be supporting the hospice with its first ever Christmas Tree collection, by providing our KWL vans and drivers. Dove House hopes to raise significant funds through this project, which we feel privileged to be involved with.
Speaking about KWL’s long-running support, Dove House Hospice’s Regional Fundraiser Jethro Shearring said:
“We are incredibly grateful to all of the wonderful staff at KWL for their continued generosity. For over 10 years now, the efforts of all involved have helped to ensure that we were able to expand on our services and positively impact more patients than ever before. At a time in which so many of our fundraising events and activities have been affected by the coronavirus, they have once again come forward and allowed us to continue to provide our specialist care during this time of great need.”
Lisa Gregory, our Customer Services Manager, shared her appreciation for the charity and their work:
“The charity is close to everyone’s hearts – we all know someone who has been supported by Dove House Hospice in their time of need. They provide such excellent care and a quality of life to those with life-limiting illnesses, and this support is extended to their families. I’m proud to be part of a company that values the importance of charities such as Dove House and consistently aims to preserve their services for the future.”
Dove House has a total yearly running cost of over £6.6million, of which only 40 days are government-funded, leaving 325 days reliant upon the contributions of the public and local businesses. We’d like to extend our admiration and gratitude to the charity, with hope they will continue for many years to come.
