Last week the Rix charity team met and collected all the suggestions we’d received from our staff to choose which charity we would support in 2012. After all the votes were counted the charity that got the most support and therefore bacame our charity of the year is “Dove House Hospice”.
About Dove House:
Dove House Hospice is a charity providing excellent care for people in the local community with life limiting illnesses. We are specialists in palliative care which is the total care of patients whose illness is no longer curable and for whom the goal must be quality of life.
Their services are available to anyone over the age of 18 years who has an illness which can no longer be cured. Care is provided for patients with cancer, neurological illnesses, heart diseases, respiratory diseases, HIV/AIDS and many other illnesses. Care incorporates physical, social, psychological and spiritual support delivered by a multi-professional team who embrace the family and significant others throughout the patient's illness.
Dove House Hospice is maintained by funds raised in the local community such as by ourselves and support from the local Primary Care Trusts.
More information about Dove House Hospice can be found at www.dovehouse.org.uk
Rix and our car business Jordans will be organising a number of events throughout the year to raise money for this great cause. We will keep you posted on our progress.
