Speen Helping Hospices

SPEEN HELPING HOSPICES

HISTORY

Speen Helping Hospices was founded in 2001 by Suzi Rose with the aim of raising funds for local hospices. The group started in a small way with a Hospice Charity Christmas Card Sale and other small events building over the years to the 5 events we are running this year. The Spring Lunch at the Horses Trust, The Car Boot Sale, Bridge Afternoon, Chilli and Dancing to a live band evening and The Christmas Market.With limited Government funding the Hospice Charites rely heavily on groups like the SHH to raise funds necessary to care for people with life limiting conditions and support their families.

The group support Florence Nightingale House, Helen Douglas House, Rennie Grove hospice and The South Bucks Day Hospice. To date we have raised £72,426.26

EVENTS

Thank you everyone that came along to support our Car Boot Sale. A new event for us and it was a really enjoyable day with over 200 people browsing the wonderful things on offer.

The group raised just under £800 bringing our total to just under £72500
