10 years and still going strong
National Australia Bank is St Joseph’s Hospice’s longest serving corporate supporter, with 2018 marking an incredible 10 years of partnership between our two organisations.
In that, time NAB have contributed over £750,000 to support St Joseph’s through company donations and staff fundraising events, from bake sales to marathons. Considering we have to raise £7 million every year through voluntary donations simply to maintain our services, this support is crucial.
But as if donating over ¾ million pounds wasn’t enough, NAB staff have donated tens of thousands of hours of employee volunteering at the hospice. Year in year out, since 2008, they’ve thrown parties, sorted donated goods, helped us prep for events, and tended to almost every inch of the hospice gardens.
So you’d think after all that, we would be the ones doing all the thanking. But, in true generous form, on 26th October 2018, NAB decided to treat St Joseph’s staff and volunteers to a delicious afternoon tea party in our beautiful Garden Room to mark the significant milestone.
It was a fabulous occasion and gave an opportunity for NAB and St Joseph’s staff to catch up, reminisce, and tuck in to some delightful tea and cake.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say how hugely appreciative we are of everyone at National Australia Bank for their dedicated commitment to our cause. It’s thanks to you that we can continue to be here for our patients and their families when they need us most. Thank you for all you do, and here’s to the next 10 years!
