South Bucks Hospice has a new com­mu­nity fundraiser

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

I AM de­lighted to be writ­ing my first of­fi­cial col­umn for the Ad­ver­tiser and Ex­am­iner and to bring you the news that I have just been ap­pointed as Com­mu­nity Fundrais­ing Man­ager at the mar­vel­lous South Bucks Hospice.

To tell you a lit­tle about my­self, I have been an honorary south­erner for about eight weeks now and have so far had a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence of life ‘Down South’.

Prior to up­root­ing my­self from my na­tive Preston, I was in po­si­tion as char­ity ex­ec­u­tive for Rock FM’s Cash for Kids; a chil­dren’s char­ity es­tab­lished by the BAUER Me­dia group to support chil­dren un­der the age of 18 who have a dis­abil­ity, life-lim­it­ing con­di­tion or lived in ex­tremely dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances.

In my four years at Cash for Kids, I worked with and sup­ported some truly amaz­ing fam­i­lies who never failed to in­spire me with their strength and pos­i­tiv­ity and I can al­ready see it’s go­ing to be no dif­fer­ent here at South Bucks Hospice.

I have some big shoes to fill after the won­der­ful Kelly Car­ruthers left us in prepa­ra­tion for the ar­rival of her baby girl in De­cem­ber but rest as­sured, it is now full steam ahead with some ex­cit­ing new plans to re­ally put South Bucks Hospice on the map.

With a brand new web­site on the way plus ever-pro­gress­ing up­dates on our new build project, I’ll have lots to keep you in­formed about in my fu­ture col­umns.

The hospice will cel­e­brate its 30th birth­day next year and I would like to ex­tend my deep­est thanks to you, our sup­port­ers, for en­abling us to pro­vide pal­lia­tive care and support to our lo­cal com­mu­nity for so many years.

With­out you we sim­ply couldn’t con­tinue to pro­vide our ser­vices free of charge or strengthen what we can pro­vide as a day hospice to our pa­tients.

I highly en­cour­age you to keep your eyes on the un­veil­ing of our new web­site in De­cem­ber, which will tell you more about who we are, what we do and how you can get in­volved. You can also see our up­com­ing events.

As al­ways we would love to hear from you if you would like to at­tend an event, fundraise in aid of the hospice or vol­un­teer with us. Please feel free to con­tact me via email on rose.fin­ni­gan@ sb­hos­pice.co.uk or visit the web­site at www.sbh.org.uk. Com­mu­nity fundraiser
