On Day 11 of our Compassionate Communities blogs, we thank Claire Moss and SSP Food Travel Experts for a £1,000 donation received via the company’s Charitable Foundation.
Every year, SSP conducts a Christmas Giveaway when managers and staff are invited to nominate a charity to receive one of 50 cheques for £1,000. Claire Moss, one of the company’s managers nominated Queenscourt in memory of her father-in-law and was delighted when the hospice was chosen as a beneficiary.
“I chose Queenscourt as my charity because my father-in-law Robert Newton was at the hospice for several months before he finally lost his battle against cancer last August,” said Claire, General Manager for SSP based at Liverpool Lime Street Station.
“The care he received was second to none and for that reason, my family will be eternally grateful to Queenscourt. I hope the donation helps in some small way. It can never make up for all the hard work that the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers do to make Queenscourt a special place that supports so many patients and their families.”
Claire, her mother-in-law Gillian, and husband, David, had planned to present the cheque to Queenscourt in person, but due to Covid-19, the family plan to visit in the future, to thank staff again for their wonderful support.
