As we emerge from the last 18 months and all that has resulted from the Pandemic, the Rowans Hospice Charity faces a difficult period to recover from the significant financial constraints and seeks to find ways to generate income for the Charity.
“The South Coast’s biggest and best running event takes place in Portsmouth on 17 October 2021, over a fast and flat 10-mile route.” Deborah Pick, Associate Fundraising and Marketing Manager said, “the Great South Run has always been extremely popular, in 2019 we had over 100 runners taking part in support of Rowans Hospice Charity, raising an amazing £38,000. It is a critical fundraising event and the Charity really does need your support now more than ever.”
The registration fee for one of the limited Charity places is £50 which will include a Rowans Hospice running vest, running number, timing chip, personalised tab and an all important medal, the Charity suggests a sponsorship pledge of £400 in support of local Hospice care.
Rowans Hospice Charity is renowned for high quality palliative and specialist end of life care. The Charity’s reliance on voluntary donations remains critical and it is calling upon the local community for help to raise vital and much-needed funds. All funds raised through the Great South Run will be supporting the future of Hospice care, not only for patients with life-limiting illnesses, but for their families and carers too. From the moment of diagnosis through to bereavement support, all care is given without charge.
Concluding, Deborah said, “If you have ever had any contact with Rowans Hospice, you will appreciate just how important the Charity is to the local community. But even if you haven’t been in contact before, please consider registering for your Charity place today to support local Hospice care. We cannot thank all our supporters enough and look forward to seeing them all very soon.”
