£5000 donation

On Thursday 9th January, Hospice Hope Trustees were delighted to be invited to a presentation evening hosted by the three Ashby Rotary Clubs at the Willesley Golf Club.  There, we were overjoyed to be presented with a magnificent cheque for £5000!

This tremendous donation was a result of the Christmas ‘Santa Sleigh’ collections all around Ashby and the surrounding district.  A further cheque has been promised once the gift aid on the donations has been received.

The collections are collectively organised and run by all three Rotary Clubs in Ashby, and one of our Trustees, Roy Stobbs, appeared as Santa on no less than 17 occasions.  A number of Hospice Hope volunteers also acted as collecting 'elves' on two nights (thank you Sue, Delyth, Janet and Gill) accompanied by some of our trustees.

We are so very grateful to the ongoing support we receive from Ashby’s Rotary Clubs.
