Latest contribution in Swindon’s Bus Company’s fundraising drive for Prospect Hospice
6 months ago
For the past 12 months, we have been raising money through a variety of initiatives - including a Christmas raffle and jumpers being worn by drivers, a local tuck shop, and an extra contribution from the company.
“Our team has enjoyed fundraising for this vital charity - and this is just the start of what we hope will be a successful year of events in aid of this wonderful cause.” said Swindon’s Bus Company’s general manager, Alex Chutter.
“The team here at Prospect Hospice does incredible work to help create the best possible experience for patients and their families, at a desperately difficult and challenging time in their lives.”
Joanne Robinson at Swindon’s Bus Company, is the driving force behind the fundraising. She added: “Delivering the cheque also gave us a chance to catch up on the charity’s latest initiatives.
“I am so pleased we’re able to play our part by supporting Prospect House as much as we possibly can.”
Since 1980, Prospect Hospice has provided the only dedicated end-of-life care service for people living in Swindon, Marlborough and north east Wiltshire - bringing care, comfort and confidence, around the clock, every day of the year.
Lisa Curtis, Prospect Hospice’s corporate and major donor fundraiser, said: “This is fantastic support from Swindon’s Bus Company, which they’ve raised through a raffle and a staff-run tuck shop. It follows on from their long history of supporting their local hospice.
“In addition to supporting Prospect Hospice through their fundraising for us, they also regularly support us at events like our Garden Fete and our Light Up a Life memorial service.
“This new donation means the we can give more care and support to local patients and families, and our thanks go to everyone at Swindon’s Bus Company for their amazing support for our work."
