My dad, William, was cared for by Pilgrims 15 years ago and the support we received as a family was fantastic. Donating my award-winning cake to Pilgrims Hospice Thanet for their Christmas raffle felt like the perfect way to say thank you.
My friends and I held a sale at Birchington Baptist Church hall, completing a year of fundraising for Pilgrims Hospices by selling craft, plants, cakes and preserves that raised £1,325 for local hospice care.
My wife, Jo, was very sociable, kind hearted and generous. We agreed to start legacy fundraising with some of our own cash. Jo was keen to provide equipment that would continue to support patients with swallowing difficulties in the future.
For me, the most enjoyable thing about volunteering as Raffles the bear is seeing the smiles on the childrens’ and adults’ faces when they see Raffles at events or in supermarkets. Just hearing them laugh is so rewarding and makes me keep doing what I’m doing.
My grandad was the biggest hero my sisters and I have ever had. At the end of his life he was fortunate enough to be given outstanding palliative care by Pilgrims. I raised £850 for Pilgrims by swimming from Hampton Pier to Herne Bay Pier and back in his memory.
I volunteer for Pilgrims because my mother was cared for in the hospice. I feel appreciated, and I enjoy seeing the range of people who visit our vintage shop – they love it because it’s like stepping back in time; it’s a retro museum experience.
My mum, Sue, was cared for by Pilgrims. I decided to ride Divas on Wheels in response to the wonderful, loving care Mum and our family received. Our visits to the hospice were like going into an oasis of calm and love, allowing us to forget our fears and anxieties for a while.
Every penny raised by our fantastic supporters helps us to continue providing vital, compassionate care to people across east Kent. Thank you so much; we really couldn't do it without you. In 2017, you provided a staggering:
