BRIAN House Children’s Hospice is saying a big thank you to friends at the Kentown Wizard Foundation, which has pledged an incredible £30,000 in sponsorship over the next 12 months.
Kentown Wizard has been a long-term supporter of the hospice, having previously sponsored some of the charity’s fundraising events, which helped to raise more than £587,000. They have also given funding for staff members at the cost of more than £487,000 over four years.
And for 2021-2022, they will be sponsoring four family-fun events, including this year’s Night Run in September and Santa Dash in December.
Together with two brand new events for 2022, the fundraisers are expected to bring in £163,000.
The money will be used to provide respite, palliative and end-of-life care to children living with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across the Fylde coast.
Head of Fundraising, Linzi Warburton, said:
“Once again, we are blown away by the support of our friends at the Kentown Wizard Foundation.
“It means so much to us that they have confidence in us to use their generosity to put on exciting family events, transforming their support into much-needed vital funds so that we can be there for the Fylde coast’s most fragile children and their families.
“We are incredibly grateful for everything they have done and continue to do for us here at Brian House.”
The Kentown Wizard Foundation is the charity of Fylde coast philanthropist Ken Townsley and supports charities which help disabled youngster and children with life-limiting conditions.
Margaret Ingram, CEO of The Kentown Wizard Foundation, said:
“We are delighted to be able to sponsor Brian House events again. Not only do these events raise awareness of our local children’s hospice, but they also raise vital funds towards the incredible work they do.”
