You Did It!! Thank you so much!


Thanks to all of your amazing support and generosity we’ve now raised enough to buy a Cuddle Bed for each of our Hospices in Ashford, Canterbury and Thanet!!

Since February when we launched the Give a Cuddle appeal we have been overwhelmed with the response with over 1,200 of you generously donating, holding events and doing amazing challenges all in an effort to get us to our target of £31,500.

We’re delighted to say that you’ve not only reached the target, but you’ve completely smashed it and raised over £37,000!!!

We’d like to thank the Schuh Charitable Trust who put the final £6,000 towards the Cuddle Bed in Canterbury helping us achieve this amazing total.

This means that not only can we buy the three Cuddle Beds, but we have enough in the pot to also buy two urgently needed High Low beds to share across our hospices. High Low beds can be set very low to the floor to prevent falls, and are surrounded by crash mats so that vulnerable patients can be kept safe.

The beds have now been ordered and we’re really excited about their arrival as it will make such a difference to the experience people have when they stay with us. Please keep an eye out on our Facebook and Twitter pages as we’ll be posting updates to let you know when they arrive.

Thank you so much again for all your generosity and kindness in supporting the campaign!
