Fundraising has always been essential to Keep Queenscourt in Service, but as a result of the pandemic, it is more vital than ever that we receive support from our wider communities.
Covid-19 has had a dramatic impact on our fundraising income, which is down by 68%, compared to 2019.
We have, however, been overwhelmed by the support we have received from individuals, organisations and businesses who have rallied around to support us by organising their own (socially-distanced!) fundraising events.
As part of Hospice Care Week, we wanted to show what it takes to Keep Queenscourt in Service, which includes the unfaltering support of our fundraisers.
People like Sharon Guinnane who shaved her head and gave up chocolate for three weeks, raising £1,500 for Queenscourt; the Horner sisters, Emma, Becky and Michelle who organised their own Star Trekk 10K walk, raising over £1,000; young Niall Carroll and Danielle Briscoe who between them raised over £4,300. Niall took part in the 2.6 Challenge while Danielle cycled 400 miles during June.
One of our most recent fundraisers is Alan Parkinson who cycled 2,010 miles in 33 days and has so far raised over £1,300 for Queenscourt.
