We were delighted to present local charity Rowans Hospice with a £5090 cheque. Rowans Hospice provides free care and support to adults who have a life-limiting illness and their families. It is a very special charity to us at NACWL, as they looked after two amazing ladies in their last days and we will be forever grateful for their care, kindness and compassion. Many people think that hospices are all about dying. But through their many different services, they also support people to live as well as they can with their illness. From the moment of diagnosis through to bereavement support.

Our charity fundraising started with a music gig called ‘On the highway to help the Rowans’ where local bands played and local businesses donated raffle prizes. The second event involved 11 employees running 10 miles in the Great South Run.

Thank you to all those who supported us and this amazing charity.
