KATHARINE HOUSE HOSPICE
Katharine House provides free hospice care services in Mid Staffordshire for people faced with an illness that cannot be cured.
MIDLANDS AIR AMBULANCE
Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK.
Since 1991, the charity has responded to more than 43,000 missions averaging 2,000 per year, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK.
The charity’s three aircraft each carry a crew comprising pilot, two paramedics or flight doctors plus full life-support medical equipment. Operating from strategically located regional airbases, 90 per cent of the region is within reach within eight minutes.
STAFFORDSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST
Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading nature conservation charity.
Their mission is to protect and enhance the wildlife and wild places of Staffordshire and to promote understanding, enjoyment and involvement in the natural world.
Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. They support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children.
Money will be raised through raffles at Social Events/Coffee Mornings with the first £50 raised given to each charity in rotation .
GENTLE EXERCISE Group: SHOWING WE CARE!
CARE 4 A CUPPA MORNING, held in aid of the
Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.
On June 20th 2014, the ladies of the Gentle Exercise Group arranged to extend their normal coffee break with a cake and a cuppa for Donna Louise. A number of the ladies baked cakes and brought them along. We asked for donations and made a staggering £81.65. The Hospice has no funding so every little helps this great charity for children in Staffordshire
