Commencing April 2017, we are proud to announce the Northern Ireland Hospice as our official Corporate Charity Partner for 2017-19, pledging to raise vital funds to help support local people living with a life-limiting and terminal illness.
Radius Chief Executive, John McLean said: “The work of NI Hospice is extremely important and is valued by the families of those they work with. At Radius we do much more than simply provide homes for people, we build communities and support many people in our specialist housing, and we recognised that we could do more to support NI Hospice in their work in a small way by helping to raise funds.”
£17,500 has been raised for the NI Hospice as of 28th February. This figure includes sponsorship by Radius for the Sparkle Dash which was held on 6 August and sponsorship of the NI Hospice Carol Service on 10 December.
Other corporate organised fundraiser events to date include: Grand National Sweep Stake; Big Lunches in Holywood and Lisburn Road Offices; Head Office Big Coffee Break, Loop the Lough, Lindy Hop Classes, Telecare Festive Raffle and Development Flower Arranging and Santa Dash 5K.
Several schemes have lodged funds including: Pinetree Manor, Loughview, Dean Crooks, Grahamsbridge Manor, Elgin Court, Sloan Court, Rathain, Glen, Cullingtree, Lir, Coleman, Oakleigh, Floating Support, Glenravel, Coleman, Ballinascreen and Quoile.
A huge thanks to all staff and tenants who have volunteered and fundraised to date, keep up the good work for a great cause!
