The money was raised by Elliotts employees, customers and suppliers via numerous fundraising activities including a golf day and the Challenge Adventure Charities ‘Annecy Challenge’ – a 550-mile bike ride through France.
Employees at Elliotts also supported the charity by volunteering at their summer fete, supplying materials for the planters in the hospice garden and donating clothes and goods for the hospice to sell in their charity boutiques.
Rachel Rawlings, Corporate Engagement & Partnerships Fundraiser at Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity, said “We were absolutely delighted to be nominated by staff at Elliotts as their charity of the year for 2018/19. The whole team across all the branches were really keen to get involved and took part in a whole host of fundraising initiatives.
We can’t thank the team at Elliotts enough for all the hard work they put in to the year, and how far this will go towards supporting patients and families at the Hospice.”
Countess Mountbatten Hospice has been caring for people with life-limiting illness, and supporting their families, in Hampshire for over 40 years.
The cheque was presented to the charity by Tom Elliott, Managing Director of Elliotts, who said: “We are thrilled to have supported the Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity. Many Elliotts employees have a connection to the hospice and I hope the money we have raised will help the hospice continue the vital work that they do.”
