Charities have really struggled throughout the pandemic, due to the lack of normal fundraising and events that would take place, in order for them to raise the vital funds they need to continue the amazing work they do. We're honoured to be able to support two particular charities, to help them conitnue their work. As well as our end goal of raising money for both 4Louis and Butterwick Hospice, the money we raise from the raffle will also give a huge boost to our team of 10 James Burrell staff and customers doing the Great North Run, as well as the team of 15 taking part in the 15 mile charity walk.
Here is a little bit of information on each of our charities.
4Louis is a UK charity that works across the country to support anyone affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and the death of a baby or child. They also work to improve the care bereaved families receive from health care and other professionals. The money raised will help the charity provide useful tools, equipment and training free of charge to hospitals, hospices and other professionals who sadly have the job of comforting grieving families who suffer a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal or child death.
Butterwick Hospice offers much needed help and support to those who are facing a life limiting illness. They are a highly respected and well-loved local charity that provides its special brand of care to thousands of people each year. Butterwick now provides help to people of all ages. Services are given free of charge to patients and their loved ones. The Hospice provides the highest quality of care and comfort and staff and volunteers believe passionately in its purpose. The money raised will allow them to continue providing their care free of charge to the people who need it most.
