What does £60,000 mean to us?

This Thursday, we’re sharing our thoughts on why fundraising events such as Muddy Mayhem are so important to the community that we serve.

As well as being the perfect opportunity to get fit and have fun, each person that takes part in Muddy Mayhem plays a vital part in helping us to continue providing quality end of life care to those in need. Every pound makes a difference to our patients, keeping them at the heart of everything we do.

This year, our Muddy Mayhem fundraising target is £60,000. So, what does this figure mean to Garden House Hospice Care?

Reaching our target means we can pay to run the whole Hospice for 9 days. When broken down, this figure could also pay for:

  • A senior staff nurse for 250 days
  • A nurse to make 2,000 visits to care for a patient in the comfort of their own home
  • 338 days of physiotherapy

Can you help us reach this year’s target? If you’ve already signed up to take part in this fantastic event, thank you! Now is the time to shout about it and share your fundraising challenge pages with your friends, family and colleagues.

Work for a corporate company? Ask your employer if they are active in match funding to help double your donation at no extra cost to you.

Know someone who is taking part? Show them your support by cheering them on on the day and by parting with a few pounds in aid of palliative care.

Or are you simply up for a new and exciting challenge to start 2019? We’d love to have you join us all on Saturday 23rd February at Knebworth House for a 5k obstacle course to remember.
