A donation from us of £5,000 has provided some welcome Christmas cheer at the end of a testing year for fundraising at Trinity Hospice and Brian House Children’s Hospice.

We’re a long term supporter of Brian House and decided that in addition to our ongoing support, we’d add a bit more sparkle to the festive period for the hospices, which have seen donations fall as a consequence of Covid-19’s impact.

Ameon contracts director Rod Bunce, said: “We hear stories every day about Covid’s impact on the UK economy, and the NHS, but perhaps not receiving as much profile, is the plight of hospices like Trinity and Brian House, who still rely largely on the generosity of corporate bodies and members of the public to help fund the tremendous and vital work that they do. That’s why, at a time when money is tight for everyone and government support is spread too thinly to make a difference for them, we were delighted to be able to add further funds.”

Our donation will be used to sponsor the hospices’ annual raffle mailing, which is a vital fundraising vehicle for the services of Trinity and Brian House.

Janet Atkins, corporate partnership manager for the hospices, said: “We are so grateful to everyone at Ameon for this very generous donation. This incredible sum of money will be used to help us reach every single person on the Fylde coast who needs our outstanding expert care. Donations like this really mean so much to us at a time when we need our community more than ever.”
