Local business, GreenThumb Oswestry, have shown their continued support to Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices by donating £730.00.

GreenThumb Oswestry started supporting their local children’s hospice in 2019 by donating £5 for every new customer who joined GreenThumb in their area, to support seriously ill children and families.   Their support has continued despite the pandemic and thanks to their wonderful customers the recent donation is being made.

Vicki Bell from Greenthumb Oswestry said: “Since we first met with Lynsey and visited Hope House in Oswestry and seen what the Hospice offered, we wanted to get involved with supporting this fabulous charity.  We are pleased once again this year to be able to donate money to ensure the charity can continue to deliver the amazing care to children and families that need it.

Hope House Children’s Hospices provide specialist nursing care and support to more than 750 children from birth up to 25 years, and their families, who live in Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.

The charity has two hospices – Hope House in Oswestry, Shropshire, and Tŷ Gobaith in Conwy, North Wales. ”

“Corporate support is hugely important to us” said Lynsey Kilvert, Fundraising Team Leader, without this kind of support we simply could not raise the money we need to make sure we are there for those that need them the most”.

Every week three local families a week face the pain of their child dying.  Hope House and Ty Gobaith currently raise more than £6.5 million every year and this enables us to help one in every three of those families.

It is their mission to raise an additional £2.5 million every year by 2025 so they can be there for every child and family who needs them, because no one should face the death of a child alone.
