Lifetime donations to Barnsley Hospice top £18,000

Lifetime’s highly successful referral scheme is helping boost the coffers of hospices up and down the country.

The main beneficiary of the scheme is Barnsley Hospice – and Corporate Fundraiser Simon Atkinson, along with Mary Ferguson from PR firm Capital B Media, popped into Lifetime’s Dodworth headquarters on Thursday morning to reveal the fact that the financial management company has so far raised over £18,000.

That money has been raised through the referral scheme as well as Lifetime’s sponsorship of the hospice’s annual golf day, and mascot Oscar.

Lifetime director William Bottomley, pictured below with fundraiser Simon, is delighted with the close relationship the company has with the hospice.

“Barnsley Hospice is our charity of choice in our local community and we are thrilled to help them in any way we can. They do an absolute fantastic job.”

Simon added: “We are so grateful to our good friends at Lifetime for the regular donations we receive from their referral scheme. It is a fantastic initiative.

“We were delighted to say a special thank you to our friends at Lifetime whose amazing support over the last few years has totalled over £18,000.

“We had fun filming with the team there this morning…look out for a special video coming soon!”

This latest hospice cheque took the Lifetime Referral Scheme total to over £32,200.

Meanwhile, Lifetime is again sponsoring the annual Barnsley Hospice Golf Day at Silkstone GC.

This year the event will take place on Friday, May 18.
