Basepoint High Wycombe presents charity with cheque after sell-out quiz night
Basepoint High Wycombe is delighted to announce that it recently presented its charity, South Bucks Hospice, with a cheque for £2,500 after match-funding the proceeds of the charity’s annual quiz night.
South Bucks Hospice aims to provide a wide range of free services to lymphoedema sufferers, and people with chronicle and incurable illnesses. The provision of a hospice and clinic helps with pain and symptom control, provides expert palliative and clinical nursing care, as well as emotional and practical support. The charity also provides a personal counselling service to both the patient as well as to those supporting them. South Bucks Hospice aims to provide the best possible quality of life and care wherever possible.
Basepoint Business Centres, who specialise in the development and operation of flexible business, innovation and enterprise centres, is owned by The ACT Foundation, a leading UK grant-making charity, dedicated to improving the quality of life of those in need. As such, each centre is dedicated to fundraising for a selected charity and The ACT Foundation match funds any money raised by the chosen charity, up to the value of £10,000 per centre.
Melanie Churcher, Regional Manager for Basepoint Business Centres in High Wycombe, Swindon, and Eastcote, comments: “South Bucks Hospice recently held its most successful annual quiz night to date, where they managed to raise £2,500 through selling tickets, holding a raffle and hosting a special dinner. We were thrilled to match-fund the proceeds, bringing the grand total to an incredible £5,000. We’re excited to continue supporting the charity’s amazing work, in turn, enabling them to support more people in the local community.”
Tony Hardware, Chief Executive of South Bucks Hospice, adds: “With Basepoint’s help, two of our favourite annual events were the most successful to date. The money we’ve raised will directly benefit our new build appeal, for which we’ve already raised £2.3m of the £3m needed for a larger, state of the art hospice so we can continue our care for local people.”
