By hill and by road: Rosemary Foundation supporters are on the move to raise funds
Volunteers have covered many miles to raise thousands of pounds for The Rosemary Foundation. In June, nurse Louise Golledge marked her 40th birthday year by commuting 21 miles on foot from her Gosport home to the Trust’s office in Langrish, and a relay team walked from Emsworth to Basingstoke. Another team completed the “Since 1664 Yomp”, a non-stop trek along the South Downs Way, through heat, rain and lightning, to raise £7,000.
The Rosemary Foundation provides a ‘Hospice at Home’ service in East Hampshire for patients in the latter stage of life threatening conditions. Our service is free to patients and carers but we receive no statutory funding. Therefore we are hugely grateful to everyone willing to face blisters and cramp to help keep our nurses on the road.
Fund raising events coming up include open days at Lavender Fields, Selborne, on 7th to 8th and 14th to 15th July, and Havant Light Opera Group is performing Gilbert and Sullivan at Blendworth Church Centre on Saturday evening, 14th July.
Donations can be made to the Trust via our website, https://www.rosemary-foundation.org.uk/how-to-donate/.
