VHE Support Barnsley Hospice
16 March 2018
VHE are thrilled to announce Barnsley Hospice as the 2018 VHE Charity of the Year.
Barnsley Hospice, located on Church Street, less than a kilometre away from the VHE Head Office on Whaley Road, is reliant on charitable donations and every year need to raise some £2million to continue to deliver and maintain the vital core services they provide to patients and their families, often at the most difficult of times.
Barnsley Hospice is a charity which provides specialist compassionate care to hundreds of people across the Barnsley borough every year. Specialist palliative care provides help and support to people with active and progressive life-limiting illnesses. This care strives to improve quality of life for patients and their families by providing pain and symptom relief, spiritual and social support, practical and financial advice; and counselling and bereavement services.
VHE have a history of supporting similar local charities and have contributed well over £100,000 in the last few years through the efforts and generosity of our staff, family, friends and extended business networks and are hoping to make this year the most successful so far. You can read about our 2017 fundraising for Tiny Tickers and 2016 fundraising for Bluebell Wood on our website.
VHE are delighted to be fundraising throughout 2018 and building a partnership with this incredible organisation. If you would like to donate and find out more information regarding the hospice and fundraising events please visit the Barnsley Hospice website.
