We’re proud to be supporting Treetops Hospice Care as our main charity for 2019, which means that for every chair we sell throughout the year – whether that’s a rise and recline, a fireside chair, or healthcare chair from any of our ranges – we’ll make a donation of £3 to Treetops.
What is Treetops Hospice Care and what do they do?
Treetops Hospice Care provides nursing care and emotional support for adults and their families throughout Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. This ranges from information and support for anyone who’s recently been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, and for their families and loved ones, to hospice care at home from qualified nurses, to a new in-patient care unit that is currently being developed at their Risley site, aiming to provide better choices for end of life care.
They also offer therapeutic services including complementary therapies, counselling and emotional support for adults and children dealing with bereavement and for those dealing with life-limiting illnesses as well as training, information and support services for professionals, too.
As you can see, Treetops provide a wide range of vital services which make a huge difference to thousands of people each year – whether that’s patients, professionals or the friends and family of those diagnosed with a serious illness.
How will our donations make a difference?
All of the services Treetops offers are free of charge to those who need them but, in order to make this possible, they have to raise over £3 million per year – around £7,500 per day. 70% of this comes from charitable donations.
The new in-patient care unit at Risley will cost around £5 million and they hope to have it up and running by spring 2020.
Their wonderful work is priceless to those who need it, but is costly to provide. Treetops work tirelessly each year to raise funds which enable them to offer their much-needed services. It means a great deal to us to be able to support their work, helping them to make a difference in the local community.
How can I support Treetops Hospice Care?
If you buy a chair from us, a £3 donation will automatically be made to Treetops Hospice Care from Stuart Mobility; our customers do not have to opt in or action this.
If you’d like to further support the charity, they run many fundraising events throughout the year that you can take part in or go along to. These range from ‘Tea for Treetops’ tea parties or regular car boot sales to the ‘Starlight Strut’ walk or ‘Colour Rush’ run if you fancy something more energetic! Have a look at their planned activities and events here: https://www.treetopshospice.org.uk/support-us/events/
They also run a regular lottery or you can make a donation via their website: www.treetopshospice.org.uk.
We look forward to updating you at the end of 2019 with the grand total that we have raised for this fabulous local charity. Thank you for your support.
