Our Charities for 2017

St Elizabeth Hospice

This year we are supporting the St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich whose aim is to improve life for people living with a progressive illness. Their work is centred around an individual's needs, which means specialist support, wherever it is required. They care for people at home, in the community or at the Hospice and help people deal with problems such as pain, anxiety and fatigue, as well as offering practical advice and family support.

Charities supported in 2016
Last year we supported - Disability Advice Service and Suffolk MIND.
