Colchester Store Charity of the Year

This year sees the support and fundraising carry on for St Helena Hospice. Our staff have voted to keep St Helena Hospice as the Store Charity of the Year and continue to work alongside the local charity that provides so much care for the community.

St Helena Hospice have been providing outstanding specialist and holistic care to people in the North East Essex and Colne Valley areas for over 30 years, including Bereavement services, Home Visits and day to day support. All services are free of charge to patients and their families at any stage of illness, and delivered by the highly qualified team of specialists from nurses and doctors to physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

A team of store fundraisers will be working together on a variety of fundraising activities for the year ahead. With the help of our staff and customers we are hoping to top the £12,500 that was raised during 2015.

Requests for raffle prizes and sponsorship of other local charitable events : We receive a substantial number of requests for raffle prizes and sponsorship, unfortunately we are unable to support all of these and primarily concentrate on raising funds for our chosen in-house charity. However please do send your request to consider, either to

·[email protected] with ‘Charity Committee’ in the subject box,

or to

· ‘The Charity Committee’ at 152 High Street, Colchester, Essex, CO1 1PN.

If you do not hear back from us within 2 weeks of the date of your letter or email then we are unable to help you on this occasion. We do wish you all the very best with your fundraising, whether it be for a fantastic local or national charity.

Kind Regards
The Charity Committee
