Prospect Hospice says ‘Thanks a Million’ for Quick Move Now’s fundraising efforts
Prospect Hospice has been one of Quick Move Now’s chosen charities for the last three years, so we were delighted to be able to support their recent Thanks a Million campaign.
Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic has had a devastating impact on the hospice. Lockdown restrictions meant the closure of their charity shops and the cancellation of all their major fundraising events. As a result, the hospice is facing a funding shortfall of more than £2million.
With their usual fundraising activities halted by lockdown restrictions, the hospice decided to ask its supporters to hold their own fundraising events, coordinated in a 36-hour joint effort.
The hospice aimed to raise £150,000 through the Thanks a Million event, but thanks to the generosity of Prospect supporters the final fundraising total reached £175,285.
Lisa Curtis, from Prospect Hospice’s fundraising team, said: “We launched our Thanks a Million campaign to help us bridge the gap in our funding caused by the pandemic and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response.
“The hospice has been hit hard during the Covid-19 pandemic and our traditional fundraising activities almost dried up overnight. Our Thanks a Million online fundraiser raised an incredible £175,285 from our generous supporters.
“We are so grateful to Quick Move Now, and everyone who took part and donated. Their support means we are able to provide specialist end-of-life care to people who need it.”
Danny Luke, Quick Move Now’s managing director, said: “We are keen supporters of Prospect Hospice and the incredible work they do, so we were very pleased to be able to support them with their Thanks a Million fundraising campaign.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to our staff, friends, families and partner organisations for their amazing efforts in raising more than £1,500 towards the Prospect’s fundraising target.”
