This period of uncertainty is difficult for us all, and unlike anything most of us have faced in our lifetime. In these trying times, we commend the work of the NHS and social care workers, who are going above and beyond on a daily basis to treat our friends and family.
This incredibly important work is not just being carried out in hospitals and intensive care wards, but in care homes and hospices, where staff are facing incredibly difficult challenges in raising the funds they need to administer care to the vulnerable and terminally ill.
Wade Financial have always been incredibly proud to support the Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle, and are asking clients and contacts to join us in raising awareness and donations to allow the hospice to continue its crucial work during the pandemic.
Ian Little said: “As many are aware, the team at Marie Curie were there for my mother in her time of need, and now we need to be there for the hospice when they need our support.”
Ian was so moved by their courage, dedication and compassion that he joined the hospice’s development board. “The work they do, day in day out, is frankly unbelievable, especially in these really exceptional circumstances. I’m making a personal donation to the cause, and would encourage those who can spare it to do the same, and really make a difference in these difficult times.”
We were all inspired by the efforts of Marie Curie nurse and amateur runner Catherine Graham, who ran a marathon in her back garden to raise funds for the hospice. Catherine, whose Wallsend Harriers club is just a ten-minute drive from our offices, ran over 26 miles (within the confines of her home).
The Whitley Bay nurse has already smashed her target of £750, already bringing in over £3,000! Please help Catherine raise as much as possible for a fantastic cause by donating below.
