A new addition to the dedicated team at the Arthur Rank Hospice is responsible for supporting and providing services for the charity.
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity appoints new fundraising and marketing manager
Donna Talbot joins the team as the Fundraising and Marketing Manager and will be responsible for working with local businesses and individuals to increase awareness and generate further much needed income for the Charity.
Donna commented "I am delighted to be part of such a wonderful team and to be able to make a difference by spreading knowledge of the services available here at Arthur Rank House. As with all Charities funding is so very important and I have already met with some fantastic ambassadors for the Hospice who are flying the flag for the Charity on a daily basis."
The Charity runs a wide array of events throughout the year to both increase awareness and raise funds. Most recently the very popular 'Ely 5K Festive Run' saw over 200 people sign up to run through Ely proudly wearing their Santa hats to the more leisurely Star Shine Stroll planned for the warmer months! The Charity is delighted to accept support via a broad range of activities including event sponsorship and participation, donations through to sales of their Arthur Rank Hospice Charity merchandise to name but a few.
The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire by providing end of life care, counselling and support for adult patients with life limiting illness. The care offered helps patients and families to make every moment count. The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity provides managerial, financial and volunteer support for the Hospice along with a wide range of outreach and education service facilities, equipment and grants.
Each year the Charity must raise over £1.5 million to meet the financial commitments at the Hospice and to continue to provide all the service free of charge to those who benefit for them.
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.
We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.
It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
