‘Tis the season to be jolly! But for over 750,000 people in central and south west London, that joy only comes via the Royal Trinity Hospice.
They’re a brilliant organisation, providing skilled and compassionate free end of life care to a huge number of people, so when Fantastic Services and Fantastic Gardeners were asked to get involved in their latest charity project…
We jumped at the chance.
The Royal Trinity Hospice has to get more than 70% of its funding through sources outside of the NHS. And with the Hospice needing £12 million every year to keep operating, raising that extra £9 million often involves a lot of hard effort on the part of the dedicated individuals who work there.
Their latest fundraising initiative was their “Light Up a Life” campaign. Fantastic Services was asked to get involved.
Trinity Hospice Light Up a Life Campaign – Fantastic Services Charity Work
The first part of the Light Up a Life campaign took place at St Mary The Boltons in Kensington on the 1st December. The aim was to raise £50,000 to go towards funding the Hospice in the coming year.
Fantastic Services – and the experts from the Fantastic Gardeners team in particular – were asked to donate a Christmas Tree for the event. This we did happily! Everyone loves a bit of Christmas cheer, and spreading it for such a good cause is always worthwhile.
You can see the spectacular 6 foot tall fir bought, installed, and decorated by the team in the St Mary The Boltons church for all of the festive period. We hope it brings as much hope and cheer to the parishioners over Christmas as it did to the Hospice team on the 1st December.
