Fundraising supports St John’s Hospice
Posted on: 08 April 2014
Premierline has been supporting St John’s Hospice for five years
Premierline, a leading provider of commercial and business insurance to SMEs has presented a local hospice with a cheque for more than £3,100. Premierline is part of the Allianz group and shares in its corporate charity partnership with ‘Help the Hospices’ nationwide. Supporting St John’s Hospice since 2009, Premierline has raised funds over the years that have contributed to its parent group’s overall total of over £700,000.
The Lancaster-based insurance provider hosted more than 20 events throughout 2013 that included a 250 mile bike ride to Brussels, the 14km Lancaster Moonlight walk, a grand prix challenge, a spinathon with the local gym and a Halloween-themed bake off.
St John’s Hospice cares for patients with life-limiting conditions and their families. They have a 17 bed in-patient unit, a Day Hospice that can see up to 45 patients each week and a Hospice at Home team who provide end of life care in patients own homes. The money raised by Premierline staff could for example go to help the hospice fund a nurse for 20 days, or it could help fund three pieces of vital ward equipment. All of which make an enormous difference to the lives of its patients.
"Premierline’s 200 staff really stepped up to the plate in their fundraising efforts last year” said Ibrahim Moghraby, Managing Director at Premierline. “Everyone’s contribution to events that included a sweet tuck shop, a walk up Scafell Pike, raffles and themed dress down days shows how dedicated we all are to supporting our local community and St John’s Hospice. I was really proud to present the cheque on behalf of the whole team.”
Anna Scott, Community Fundraiser at St Johns Hospice, said “We are extremely grateful to all of the staff at Premierline for their fundraising efforts over the last 12 months. The hospice relies on support from within the local community to raise funds allowing it to continue providing its care and support for patients with life-limiting conditions and their families. On behalf of the staff, patients and families at St John’s Hospice….THANK YOU.”
