Pexhurst spreads Christmas cheer with help for local hospice

Award-winning fit out and refurbishment specialists Pexhurst has recently made a donation to Isabel Hospice to help with their fundraising this Christmas.

Pexhurst has had a long standing partnership with Isabel Hospice and has been supporting the charity since 2000, when the firm’s late founder John Vella (pictured to the left) started the partnership. Over the past 16 years, staff have been involved in a range of activities to help raise money and awareness for this very worthy cause. One which is close to the hearts of its employees.

Director Nick Tagliarini represented Pexhurst at Isabel Hospice’s Light of Love ceremony held recently at the Campus in Welwyn Garden City.

The charity is holding eight Lights of Love ceremonies throughout November and December. Central to each will be a tree adorned with lights - a symbol of the lives being celebrated and remembered.

Commenting Nick Tagliarini, said: “Being a local business, many of our people know a family member or friend who have needed the support of Isabel Hospice at some time, including John Vella who received support from the charity. We are proud to have supported the charity for 16 years and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Isabel Hospice throughout 2017 and beyond.”

Isabel Hospice is a registered charity which provides free palliative care and support for patients and their families living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses such as MND, end stage renal conditions, end stage heart conditions, respiratory conditions or other neurological conditions, throughout eastern Hertfordshire. The population they serve is almost 350,000 people.

They have an in-patient hospice in Welwyn Garden City which can accommodate up to 15 patients, day service locations in Welwyn Garden City, Bishop’s Stortford and Stanstead Abbotts, a home care team providing support and nursing care in patients’ homes, and a family support and bereavement service.
