Ironman and Rotary Help Build For The Future
Horwich Rotary President David Winstanley and Vice President Revd David Griffiths called at Bolton Hospice recently to present a cheque for Â£200 to fund raiser Josie Fowler to help the Hospice build for the future.
The cheque presented was raised by Rotary Charity Fundraisers through the sponsorship of competitors taking part in the very demanding Ironman UK Bolton event.
The Hospice exists to provide palliative and end of life care and it’s expensive. Hospice care is not just a building, it is a way of caring for people.
The Hospice needs to raise around £3.2 million a year to continue to provide their services for free. Over its 25 year’s history demand for the Hospice has increased considerably.
In order to care for the local people in the future in the best possible environment, Bolton Hospice is now committed to further expand and improve their facilities. This will include improving bedrooms, to be bigger and brighter and have en-suite bathrooms.
Ironman UK athletes and their sponsors with the support of local Rotarians are contributing to this valuable work.
