You may remember that last summer we decided to support Garden House with raising funds for their Hospice in Letchworth – see blog JUL14
With the help of our wonderful customers we managed to raise £2686.00, most of this from our £10 per order over £1000 and an amazing £700+ from just selling small off-cuts of carpet and old samples through one of our Landlords empty shops in the town. Many thanks to John Ray Ltd for the loan!
It brought it home just how important places like GHH are to the community when only just a couple of weeks ago a neighbour of one of the team was given wonderful care for their last few days by the superb staff at the hospice.
They provide such a warm and surprisingly up beat environment for patients and families alike – they are a far cry from most peoples expectation of a sombre or depressing place; they give comfort, support and most of all great dignity to those with terminal illnesses. This is one of the good reasons why we chose GHH as this type of charity often does not get the publicity and popular support they richly deserve.
Our local paper has covered the story, please see the article below:
Thank you to every one who contributed and if you would like to help collect for GHH we do still have loose change collection boxes for you to keep at home.
