Home is where the heart is – especially for people living with cancer or other life-limiting conditions and who want to spend as much time as possible at home with loved ones rather than in hospital.
Few people understand this sentiment more than local estate agents Cassidy and Tate. The St Albans-based agency has been generously supporting the work of Rennie Grove Hospice Care by donating 50 per cent of its fee to us when it sells the home of any Rennie Grove employee, volunteer or supporter.
Rennie Grove provides specialist nursing care and support for children and adults and their families in Bucks and Herts, plus a range of support services including day hospice care and clinics.
Cassidy and Tate has made generous donations to Rennie Grove from the sale of three homes so far, and plans to extend the scheme into 2019. “Cassidy and Tate are keen to give something back to the local community and want to support Rennie Grove Hospice Care because the charity does so much to ensure that local people who have a life-limiting illness can spend their last months and weeks at home with their families,” said Stuart Cassidy, who came up with the fund-raising idea.
Anyone who volunteers for us, or has participated in one of our events or been involved in any type of fundraising activity on behalf of us is welcome to sign up for the Cassidy and Tate scheme. “Our agency sells properties across a wide geographical area that includes Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, London and beyond,” added David Tate. “So our offer is not limited solely to people selling in St Albans.”
“We are very pleased to be working with Cassidy and Tate on this exciting promotion, which has the potential to raise a lot of money for Rennie Grove Hospice Care,” said Rennie Grove senior corporate fundraiser Rosalind Lee.
“Our thanks to Stuart Cassidy and the team for their support for our charity and the amount of care that this will provide for local patients with life-limiting illness - enabling many of them to fulfil their wish to spend precious moments at home with loved ones.”
