6th Dec 2012 - Party Ingredients Advent Calendar: Order Your Easy Christmas Card from St Joseph's Hospice
6 Dec 2012 | Vicky O'Hare
With festivity, consumption and indulgence at their peak, Christmas is also a good time to remember charities and their relentless work. One that’s really close to our hearts is St Joseph’s Hospice based in Hackney. The Hospice provides free care and support for people who have progressive and life-threatening illnesses such as heart failure, cancer or Motor Neurone Disease. What we love about St Joseph’s is that they support and talk about people, their families and carers, not just patients and symptoms. The charity specialises and prioritises people with complex and multiple needs, and although they have great modern facilities in-house, they also have a dedicated team of nurses who care for people in their own homes.
To continue delivering their amazing services, St Joseph’s Hospice need to raise over £5.5 million every year, and Party Ingredients are going to be involved with their fundraising over the next year. In fact, we have already started by putting the St Joseph’s Hospice ‘Easy Christmas Card’ up on our wall this Christmas. It’s a lovely way for companies to support the charity. The idea of the Easy Christmas Card – a large blank poster to pin on the wall – is that instead of everyone buying cards for colleagues and friends, we will all write festive messages on the poster. We then give donations for the time, money and trees saved by doing so. What a fantastic idea.
To order your Easy Christmas Card, contact St Joseph’s Hospice on 0208 525 6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
