Severnside raise money for Hope House

Staff and residents at Severnside Housing raised money during December and January for Hope House – donating a fantastic £188.50.

Hope House Children’s Hospices provide specialist nursing care and support to life-limited children, young people and young adults from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.

Severnside office staff raised money by holding a number of raffles and a guess the name of the cuddly rabbit, who was aptly named Peter!  Staff also donated money to write Christmas wishes to each other on baubles hung on the office Christmas tree.

Severnside residents living at Cross Hill Court, Moston Green and Greenacres Sheltered Housing Schemes raised money by taking part in an Inter-scheme Quiz, using Skype to see and speak to each other.  Each scheme had a quiz master and residents had great fun battling it out over a number of general knowledge rounds.

Vanessa Thomas from Hope House who recently visited Severnside’s offices to collect the donation and thank everyone involved said “In the current challenging financial climate we are totally reliant on our regular supporters for donations to keep the doors of Hope House open and our services running.  Severnside has been supporting us for many years, their help is so appreciated by everyone at Hope House and we can’t thank them enough.”
