Building Society continues its crucial community support

Rennie Grove Hospice Care is delighted to have received £7,500 fromjo and andrew Buckinghamshire Building Society’s charitable foundation following a vote by the Society’s members.

The donation will help Rennie Grove fund its team of specialist Hospice at Home nurses who provide 24/7 planned and responsive care in patients’ own homes. 

The cheque was presented at the Society’s AGM on Wednesday 26 April by Andrew Craddock, CEO of Buckinghamshire Building Society, to Jo Turner, the charity’s Head of Fundraising for Buckinghamshire.

Andrew commented: “We have had a long relationship with Rennie Grove, and are pleased to be able to once again support the great service they offer to people in the local area.”

Buckinghamshire Building Society has also confirmed that it will be lead sponsor for Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge for a second year. The popular sponsored walk over five, nine or 18 miles takes place on Sunday 10 September and registration is open now. 

Jo said: “We are delighted to receive this generous donation and very grateful for the endorsement of the society’s members.  We rely on the generosity of the general public to keep caring for local families affected by cancer and other life-limiting illness.  The support of Buckinghamshire Building Society and its members – through this donation and their generous sponsorship of our Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge – means more people will have the choice to die at home, where research shows most want to be, rather than in hospital.”
