Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice Donation
Recently, members of Rugby Triathlon Club gathered to present a cheque for £500 to Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice.
The money raised at various club social events will be used by this local charity to support its ongoing activities. Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice launched the Open Doors Appeal in June last year. The aim of the appeal is to significantly increase income to enable them to open their doors more often to more families. The charity needs to raise £1.3m every year to enable them to open around the clock every day.
Ali Postlethwaite, Club Chairman in 2013 said: “We are very pleased with our fundraising and to be able to donate £500 was a great achievement.”
Jane McGaffney, Community Fundraiser at Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice added: “At the moment we are only open 3/4 days a week. We specialise in palliative, respite and end of life care to children aged 0 to 5 years, who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. We can’t thank the Rugby Triathlon Club enough for their fantastic support. We rely heavily on the local community to help us meet our charitable objectives”.
Each year Rugby Triathlon Club chooses charities to support. In 2014, the charities are The Hoskyn Centre for the Disabled in Bilton Road, Rugby and JDRF (Junior Diabetes Research Foundation).<- Back to News
