Gordons Chemists helping Hospice to continue providing special care this Christmas
Gordons Chemists have once again put their support behind Southern Area Hospice Services, providing sponsorship that will help the Hospice to continue to provide their specialist palliative care services for over 12 hours this Christmas, a truly special gift.
Southern Area Hospice Services would sincerely like to thank Gordons Chemists for their ongoing support and very generous donation of £5,000 which is very much welcomed and appreciated by the Hospice. 2020 was a very difficult year at Southern Area Hospice with many of their usual fundraising events unable to take place due to Covid-19 and so they have been relying heavily on community and corporate support and have been overwhelmed with the support they have received.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Robert Gordon, Managing Director of Gordons Chemist said, “It is a pleasure to support this wonderful organisation and assist them in continuing their brilliant work. The Southern Area Hospice provides services which are are vitally important to our local community and Gordons Chemists are honoured to be able to help in any way we can.”
Anne Mac Oscar, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Southern Area Hospice thanked Gordons Chemists for their support saying, “We would sincerely like to thank Gordons Chemists for their generous donation towards our Corporate Christmas Gift Appeal. Gordons Chemists are very generous supporters of Southern Area Hospice and we very much appreciate their ongoing support. All the money donated will help our team at the Hospice to continue their work providing specialist palliative care to local patients and families, not just at Christmas, but every day of the year. 2020 has been a very challenging year at the Southern Area Hospice, however whilst many of our own fundraising events were postponed or cancelled, we continued to provide the highest level of care to our patients and families right throughout the pandemic, and it is thanks to the generous support of the local community and businesses like Gordons Chemists that we were able to do so.”
