We pledge to raise £30k for Ashgate Hospice
We've been the first to make an Ashgate Hospice fundraising pledge! We've made Ashgate Hospice our official charity partner and to kick things off we've joined its £1m urgent beds appeal by pledging to raise £30,000
Announced as our official charity, over the next two years we've pledged to raise at least £30,000 for the fantastic palliative and end of life care organisation that plays such an important role in the community.
To reach our target, students from across the College will be holding a wide variety of events across the next 24 months, pooling the funds they raise as they go. Wish us luck!
Lucy Nickson, Chief Executive at Ashgate Hospice care says, “I am absolutely delighted that Chesterfield College has chosen Ashgate Hospice care as their charity of the year for 2014/15. Both Ashgate Hospice care and Chesterfield College have the same motivations – to provide an excellent service to the community – and this is why we believe our partnership with the college will be so successful over the coming year. I am sending a huge thank you on behalf of the hospice, and am really looking forward to working together.”
Principal at Chesterfield College, Stuart Cutforth, explains, “I’m thrilled that we have now officially partnered with Ashgate Hospice to help this fantastic organisation which plays such an important role in the community.”
