Following a recent visit to Brian House Children’s Hospice, and seeing the amazing work they do. Pennine Wealth Solutions (PWS) decided we wanted to do whatever they could to support the charity.
Brian House Children’s Hospice
The charity is based in Bispham, Blackpool care for local children with very complex needs and life-limiting conditions. Their amazing facilities are designed to create a home from home atmosphere for the children and their families. It costs £3,598 per day to run Brian House, and they only receive 15% of their running costs from the government. All donations they received no matter how big or small are all gratefully welcomed.
Following our visit
We felt we had to do something to help this fantastic charity. So we started off our fundraising at our June Investment Seminar, where we raffled a hamper filled with lots of goodies, including an afternoon tea for two. We were amazed at how generous our guests were and in total raised £260 within minutes of the tickets going on sale.
But we didn’t want to stop there so as from September this year, PWS will donate £300 each month to Brian House. The donation is linked by a formula to our turnover, and therefore we anticipate it growing in the future.
Our next investment seminar will take place on Thursday 5th December at Barton Grange Hotel, and we will be holding another raffle at the seminar. This time we will have a hamper full of Christmas goodies! Some of our staff are also looking at other ways they can fund raise over the next 12 months, so watch this space!
At PWS, we are no stranger to supporting our local community
For the past five years, we have been co-sponsors of the Last Choir Singing competition, which has seen thousands of primary school children take part in the competition to become the Last Choir Singing Champions. PWS are still supporting Last Choir in the future, but this year wanted to also support a local charity, and could think of no better charity to support than Brian House.
