We’re pleased to present Pendleside Hospice with our annual affinity donations cheque, totalling £8,323.90, which will help fund their continued, vital support to the community.
Pendleside Hospice is a charity that exists to enhance the quality of life for people with life-limiting illnesses, by delivering specialist care that addresses both physical and emotional needs.
The Hospice costs over £4.5 million each year to run, with only 23% being funded by the NHS through grants. This leaves over £3.5 million to be raised from charitable donations and the generosity of people in the local area.
The Marsden has supported Pendleside Hospice for many years, through fundraising initiatives and donations from our affinity accounts, which we launched in 2007 to help raise money for local causes. The more members save, the more we donate, which is why we’d like to thank our members for their continued support for this worthy cause.
Christina Cope, Head of Corporate at Pendleside Hospice, said: “We’re very grateful to have support from Marsden Building Society and this annual donation from their affinity accounts – it’s an important amount that has been raised and we’re delighted that the money raised will help to continue delivering our service to people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.”
