Charity Work

There are two main charities which we support and are close to our hearts, Sue Ryder Care Hospice in Nettlebed, near Henely-On-Thames and Cancer
Research UK.

The reason for us picking these two charities, is that we lost our Dad to Pancreatic Cancer. He was cared for at Sue Ryder Hospice. The staff do an amazing job and the hospice do not receive government funding, so we felt this was a very worthy and local cause.

In addition we support other charities and events by donating raffle prizes or our time and products.

Recently we helped organise a Macmillan coffee morning with Carole in our village to raise awareness and money for the charity. Carole wanted it to be held in the Village Memorial Hall so it became a village event. Fuschia supplied the vintage crockery and bunting to dress the Memorial Hall and had a stall which donations were made on sale of our products. We had so much local support and raised an amazing £535 for Macmillan. A big thank you for everyone who made it possible by donating their time, money and cakes - a real team effort.

A big thank you to Rachel Woodason Photography for the wonderful photo’s
she captured.

Finally the final thank you goes to anyone who has helped and supported us and these charities over past and future years to come.

Sue Ryder Care Hospice, Nettlebed Henley-On-Thames

Sue Ryder Care Hospice in Nettlebed, are a fantastic charity who are not overly well known in their local area covering Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.  The hospice really does provide an amazing service to patients and their families.

Please view their website for more information on the charity, and the local and regional services they can offer the community.

Cancer Research UK

The second charity we support is Cancer Research UK, as we want to really help raise funds and awareness for this charity so they can continue research and development.

We also feel it is very important to help educate friends, family and the community so people are aware of signs and symptons.  If caught early there is the opportunity for treatment and a greater chance of recovery.

Together we are making a difference.
