Charity donation to the Rowan’s Hospice
Compass Associates are committed to raising money for a variety of health and social care related charities throughout the year. For our latest charity day we held a Summer Fete with a Mexican twist at our Portsmouth head office and we were delighted to raise over £1200 for The Rowan’s Hospice.
The Rowan’s Hospice are a local charity based in Waterlooville, on the outskirts of Portsmouth, supporting people with life limiting illnesses, their families and carers in the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire area. They offer specialist support wherever this is needed, be that at the hospice itself, at home or in the community. It costs the Rowan’s £6.5m a year to continue their vital work with only a small percentage of this coming from the NHS. The rest comes from legacy donations to the hospice, and through over 170 fundraising events that take place each year, just like ours.
Kate Fairbrother, Director of HR & Communications and Lily Parke, Head of Marketing were invited to present our donation to Gemma Carden, Corporate Fundraiser at the Hospice.
“Compass Associates held a great event which raised a fantastic amount for Rowans Hospice, a brilliant £1262! It was lovely to see the company working together and all taking part in the Summer Fete with a Mexican twist, I was made very welcome.” – Gemma Carden
