Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice
Maxivise is a proud Platinum Sponsor of the Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice. The Hospice is a wonderful charity that does so much good work for local residents. The volunteers are as special as the charity itself and work tirelessly to provide healthcare to those in need. The Hospice not only offers care to the terminally ill but also provides a range of services that help people with illnesses and disabilities to lead a better quality of life.
Times are tough for everybody and this is no different for charities. GBCH is only part-funded by the government and has to raise the majority of its money through fundraising actives. They rely on their sponsors and on the very kind-hearted people who support them by donating, fundraising or volunteering their time and services in order to help with the day-to-day running of the charity.
The Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice need all the support that local businesses and individuals can provide. Sally Bateson, Fundraising Director at the Hospice, officially opened our first ever eyecare centre in Sidcup on Tuesday 2nd November 2010 and said, “Our local business partners help us to raise the vital funds we need each year to keep providing care for those people in our community who need it most. There are four levels at which businesses can choose to support us and Maxivise has joined us at the highest (Platinum) level which is fantastic. Every business partner makes a big difference to the care we can offer our community.”
The Directors chose to support the Hospice because of the excellent care and support it provides to so many people from the boroughs of Greenwich and Bexley. Commenting on their reasons for supporting the Hospice they said, “We knew someone who was cared for at the Hospice during his final days and someone else that has benefited hugely from their out-patient clinics. The Hospice does so much for the local community. We’ve seen it first-hand. The staff and volunteers are dedicated and work extremely hard, which is why we offer them a free eye test every two years and 50% off every pair of glasses on production of their Hospice ID card. We are extremely proud to be Platinum Sponsors and encourage everyone in the local community to do whatever they can to support this great charitable organisation.”
