President’s Charity of the Year

4 June

James Gleisner, President, is delighted to announce that the president’s charity for 2020 is the Countess Mountbatten Hospice in West End, Southampton. Countess Mountbatten Hospice supports people with life-limiting illnesses and their families. They serve the communities of Southampton and large parts of Hampshire including Eastleigh, Romsey, Winchester and the surrounding areas offering a wide range of services, providing physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual support. Their aim is to make sure patients and their families have access to skilled, compassionate and sensitive care in a place of their choice. Each year it costs over £6 million to provide this vital service. They receive a limited amount of NHS funding, so much of the cost of providing services each year is met through donations and voluntary funding.

On the website there are details of some of their fundraising activity for 2020. If you fancy running the Southampton Marathon and don’t have a place contact the hospice. The fundraising target is £250 for the full marathon
