About this Collection
Thank you for supporting the first Christmas tree collection in aid of Severn Hospice, Telford.
The Lions collected and recycled 50 Christmas trees and this has raised £351.15 (after costs and including Gift Aid).
Our members come from all walks of life but who are like minded people who give their time and expertise freely for the benefit of others. We are supported by enthusiastic volunteers and supporters, and by the people within our community who give most generously when we knock on their door!
After costs 51% of the monies raised will be donated to Severn Hospice and 49% to other local charities. Thank you also to all our volunteers and supporters for their help with the Christmas tree collection.
For further information or if you would like to get involved and help with the collection, please get in touch with the Kev Hopley at Telford Lions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
About the Hospice
Severn Hospice gives specialist care and support free of charge to families across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales who are living with an incurable illness.
We support families through the good days and bad days because we believe that when cure is no longer possible, care is. Since 1989, we have given free care and support to more than 34,000 people and their loved ones during their time of greatest need. We now help more than 2,000 local people every year.
Our hospice is part of health services offered to people living in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales but we are not part of the NHS. We are a completely independent charity, having to raise around two-thirds of our running costs.
All of the care we provide to thousands of people every year is only possible thanks to the generous support we receive from the communities we serve. Our services are funded through a combination of kind donations from local people, fundraising activities, our lottery and retail departments, gifts in people’s wills and grants from the NHS.
Severn Hospice Mission - Our mission is to provide the best care and a better life for people living with an incurable illness, and for those important to them.
Severn Hospice Vision - Our vision is a world where people are cared for at the end of their life as well as they were at its beginning.
