One of the most well-known charities in the Wandsworth and Lambeth area has recently celebrated its 120th anniversary, with celebrities from the worlds of broadcasting and comedy being present to help them to do so.
Newsreader Huw Edwards and comedian Jack Dee joined staff at Trinity Hospice on Clapham Common to mark the charity’s birthday, and the specialist end of life care that they offer. With running costs of over £8m per year, Trinity Hospice receives only one third of the total from government funding, whilst the remaining sum is raised by people in the community. With famous faces backing fundraising and promoting the charity, hopes are that their profile will continue to be raised, and the important work that they do widely recognised. Mr Edwards described Trinity as a ‘world-class facility’, and urged the public to continue donating and finding fun ways in which to raise money for them.
Perhaps you and some of your chums in and around the Magdalen Estate would like to get involved in fundraising for the Hospice; details and ideas for doing so can be found on their website.
