We’re delighted to announce that we have selected Willow Burn Hospice as our chosen charity to support this year. And what better timing as they launch Willow Week (9-15 May); an annual fundraising and awareness week which was launched in 2020 to shine a light on the vital work of the hospice.
Willow Burn was founded over thirty years ago by two local women who recognised a need for improved end of life care for residents of rural County Durham.
Their aim is to relieve physical and emotional distress and control symptoms, provide care comfort and compassion at the end of life to embrace and support patients, and their families and friends to achieve this. Vital services include a range of holistic day care, in-patient services and family support and bereavement counselling services.
As a company with a philosophy of care at it’s core, we could think of no better pairing and look forward to contributing to the fantastic efforts of staff and volunteers at Willow Burn.
