Our Hospice Heroes appeal has been boosted by £2,000, thanks to the Wallace and Gromit Children’s Foundation.
Shortly after we launched our campaign to raise £200,000 for Trinity Hospice and Brian House Children’s Hospice, to help pay for a massive refurbishment, Trinity applied to the foundation for help.
The foundation supports poorly children in hospital or hospices.
This week, the hospice, on Low Moor Road, Bispham, announced their application had been successful.
Trinity’s Legacy and Grants fund-raiser, Heather Jones, said: “We crossed our fingers when an application for £2,000 was submitted in October last year.
“The Wallace and Gromit Children’s Foundation has been a wonderful supporter of Brian House, with previous funding being given in March 2013, so we were over the moon to learn that a further award had been made of money towards the works at Brian House. It is a sign of the importance of the work at Brian House that they have chosen to support us.”
The Hospice Heroes campaign has already had a little extra help from Wallace and Gromit themselves recently, when the intrepid pair put the kettle on and held a Trinity Tea Party.
The duo, currently found at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, are encouraging people all over the Fylde Coast to host a tea party during April in aid of our appeal.
