Successful fundraising in November & December 2018

We had a number of successful events to round off 2018; in particular the Big Give, which ran from 27th November to 4th December. We had hoped to raise £8,000 which meant we needed our donors to give £4,000 which would then be matched to raise £8,000. In fact, our donors gave £5,007 (£4,000 of which was doubled) and with Gift Aid the total raised was over £10,000. A fantastic result, which we could not have achieved without so many of our donors taking part.

Other events included Mary Lamb’s Open House event in December, which raised over £2,477, and the Bridge event at the Bishop’s Palace in Norwich, which raised over £1,450.

Many thanks for all your support in 2018 and wishing everyone all the best for 2019!

Certificate from Ethiopian government

Hospice Ethiopia UK has received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Ethiopian Ministry of Health for its work in “Supporting the planning and implementation of pain and palliative care services in Ethiopia”. This is a great step forward in the Ethiopian Government recognising the importance and relevance of palliative care.
Without our supporters none of this would have happened. Many thanks to all our donors and helpers.8AF09DC3-A027-481A-86EA-C836471EC938.jpeg

January update

We’ve just had the quarterly report (for October-December 2017) from Hospice Ethiopia director, Ephrem.  We were thrilled to read that following a visit to HE towards the end of last year,  Ethiopiaid (based in Bath, UK) has given them £28,600! More about Ethiopiaid can be found on their website: http://ethiopiaid.org.uk/

Ephrem has been awarded a bursary and confirmed that he will come to the UK (visa permitting) for a leadership  management course at the St Christopher’s Hospice from 15th-19th October. We are also hoping to arrange a clinical placement at Priscilla Bacon Lodge, Norwich for the week preceding the course Oct 6th-14th.
