Why should you raise sponsorship?
Rennie Grove Hospice Care is a registered charity offering services to support local patients diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
Whilst there is no minimum sponsorship that need to be raised to take part in the Herts 10K and Half Marathon Challenge, we would like to ask that all participants consider raising a suggested amount of £100 for the 10K challenge and £250 for the Half Marathon Challenge. You will be surprised how easy it is. Simple set up a JustGiving page and share it with your family and friends to sponsor you. Alternatively you can set up a Facebook fundraiser. Or you may wish to make a personal donation instead. All funds donated and raised will enable Rennie Grove nurses to provide specialist care and support for local adults and children with a life limiting illness. Thank you
For example; £50 could fund the cost of a first assessment visit to a hospice at home patient to understand their needs and wishes and draw up a personal care plan.
And of course every pound raised over £50 can help fund larger costs but this list is not exhaustive.
£100 could fund two Family Support Sessions for a bereaved child enabling us to offer them support when they need it most.
£300 could fund the cost of a series of six one-to-one counselling sessions with a Family Support Services counsellor, helping families to cope with illness and bereavement.
£1,260 could buy a syringe pump – a piece of specialist medical equipment used by our Hospice at Home nurses to help make patients’ final days more comfortable. They are a vital part of giving terminally-ill patients the choice to be cared for at home, if that is their wish.
Thanks to the help of people like you, we were able to support thousands of local families in Herts and Bucks every year at no cost to them, and the number of people needing our support is predicted to rise in the coming years.
“Everyone at Rennie Grove was helpful, respectful, caring and highly competent. They responded accurately, appropriately and with compassion to all that was told to them and asked of them. This is an exemplary service which makes those caring feel really “held”.”
The HERTS 10K and Half Marathon are to raise money for Rennie Grove Hospice Care only. As a charity we invest significant amounts of time and resources into the organisation of the HERTS 10K and Half Marathon. It is for this reason that we cannot allow the event to be used to fundraise for other charities.
