Local Asda customers support Pilgrims Hospices
Posted on 25 March 2013
The local shoppers at Asda in Broadstairs nominated Pilgrims Hospices to receive the first amount of £200 in their ‘Chosen by You’ selection. The money is given by the Asda Foundation and has been allocated to the Pilgrims Sponsor a Nurse Campaign.
Karen Kenward Regional Fundraising Manager said; “By sponsoring a Pilgrims nurse you are helping to cover the costs of ensuring a nurse can provide care where it is needed – on the ward, in the day hospice, in a patients home, or at a community outreach centre.
Pilgrims provides free palliative care for adults with a range of life-limiting illness including cancer, heart failure, respiratory conditions and neurological diseases. Care is provided from the three sites, in patients’ homes and via community programmes.
To keep delivering care to those who need it most, Pilgrims has to raise in excess of £10 million each year. Much of this comes from the communities served by the hospices inCanterbury, Thanet and Ashford.
With your support we can continue to offer the best in medical care for our patients in east Kent.”
