Festive fundraising for KEMP: Give a hamper a home

KEMP Hospice is delighted to team up with Midcounties Co-operative again this Christmas to produce 40 festive Christmas hampers.

In the past, KEMP has received fantastic support from local businesses and community groups, including CP Foods, Matalan, Slimming World and The Park Gate Inn. In fact, since the hampers were introduced three years ago, more than £15,000 has been raised through festive fundraising activities. Looking to build on this success, KEMP is now looking for local businesses, pubs, clubs and community groups to give a hamper a home this Christmas and start fundraising. All money raised will go towards ensuring that those in the local community receive the care and support they need at what is probably the most difficult time of their lives. In return for a hamper, all KEMP asks is that fundraising activities generate at least £100 for each hamper.

KEMP Hospice offers care and support to individuals, families and carers across the Wyre Forest who are dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement. Head of Fundraising at KEMP, Cathy Sloan, said that she was, again, grateful to Midcounties Co-operative in supporting this initiative and explained how the money raised would be used: “With a minimum of £100, we could fund a patient in the day hospice for a morning, where they can take part in recreational activities, access a range of therapies and benefit from a few hours care under the support of our expert team of palliative care staff. Your donation could make their Christmas a little more special this year.”
