Introducing charity’s new fundraisers
Introducing charity's new fundraisers

Thorpe Hall Hospice is delighted to introduce two new fundraisers to the team working with businesses, groups and supporters from across the region to support the charity.

Cheyenne Graves and Joely Garner have joined the team at the Sue Ryder hospice, in Longthorpe, Peterborough and are already settling into their roles.

The pair both bring lots of charity experience to their new positions as community fundraisers and are now concentrating on building relationships with people in the area who are keen to support the hospice.

Every year, it costs £2.8 million to run the hospice’s services, both at Thorpe Hall and in the community where Hospice at Home, befriending, family support and complementary therapy teams operate. £1.5 million of that has to be fundraised – which is where Cheyenne and Joely’s expertise is now focused.

“I think we both feel really lucky to have come to a charity which has so much local support,” said Cheyenne. “As soon as we started meeting people it became clear there is so much affection for Thorpe Hall in the area and we are now looking at how we can transform that affection into support for the work the hospice does.”

Joely has been working with pubs across the region encouraging them to join the hospice’s Pub500 campaign with a pledge to raise £500, and drumming up support at local businesses.

She said: “It seems there’s someone working at just about every local firm who has a connection with Thorpe Hall which really helps us when we are talking about the incredible care at Thorpe Hall. We’re really keen to encourage businesses to support us – by arranging events, getting staff involved in fundraising or perhaps even by choosing us as a regular charity to support.”

Cheyenne and Joely would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in finding out more about supporting Thorpe Hall Hospice. They can be contacted on 01733 225999 or via email and
