Local law firm Hodge Halsall donate four figure sum to charity

A local law firm have given a helping hand to one of the area's leading charities with a donation of over £2000 to Queenscourt Hospice.

Hodge Halsall presented the cheque for £2289.41 to the hospice this week as part of their Communities program me, and builds on from the work of the 'Make A Will' campaign which previously raised over £3000 for the hospice in April.

Mark Robinson, managing partner at Hodge Halsall, said:- "We are proud to be able to donate to Queenscourt. It is a local charity that is close to our hearts and it means a lot to us all to know that there is support and care there if we need it. After the success of the 'Make a Will' campaign we were keen to support the hospice further and we hope that this donation will help Queenscourt to continue the wonderful work it does."

Carolyn Gorman, from Queenscourt Hospice, added:- "We are absolutely overwhelmed by the generosity shown by donators like Hodge Halsall. With continued help and support like this we are confident that we will be able to ensure that Queenscourt will be open for many more years to come to care for those people in our community who might have need of its special care."

About Queenscourt
Queenscourt is about end-of-life care. Based on Town Lane in Southport, the hospice has ten beds for in-patients, day services and an out-patient service.

They are an independent voluntary and charitable body and the majority of their income comes from charitable donations. With running costs of over £2 million a year and limited NHS funding, all donations make a big difference to the hospice.
