Annabel Toleman of St Ann's Hospice recently joined the SMBA as our latest member! Annabel is the Corporate Fundraising Officer for the Hospice and the group have welcomed her and her enthusiasm. The group were keen to find out more about the work Annabel is currently doing and so she delivered her first ten-minute presentation to the members last Wednesday. Annabel spoke about how St Ann's Hospice are looking to fund three new ambulances by August next year as the ambulances they are currently using will no longer be serviceable by Summer 2018. St Ann's Hospice need these ambulances as they already have waiting lists for patients who rely on this service. It's been a busy few weeks for the Hospice and fundraising is been carried out at several events including the St Ann's Hospice Christmas Fairs, there will be a fair held on the 6th of December and we'd love to see you there! Annabel would be extremely grateful for any donations, be it a selection box for Santa’s grotto, any unopened bottle or box of chocolates. During her presentation she shared some of the ways in which St Ann's Hospice has helped those during a difficult time, sharing comments from both patients and family members;
“Everyone is very welcoming, right from the beginning. As soon as you walk in the door you are made to feel part of the family.”
