Supporting Demelza’s Adopt a Nurse programme in 2017
Demelza’s ‘Adopt a Nurse’ initiative received a boost from our donation of £54,000 in 2017.The sum is the equivalent of 2,680 hours of nursing care.
At the first Alan Curbishley Axis Foundation Charity Golf Day in June 2017, the Axis Foundation donated £54,000 to Demelza Hospice Care for Children‘s Adopt a Nurse scheme.
Axis Foundation raises funds through an annual corporate donation and corporate events such as our charity ball. Axis people are also heavily involved in personal fundraising through activities that range from skydives and bake sales to dotty days and abseils.
At the cheque presentation to Demelza, their CEO Ryan Campbell said: “Everyone who works for or with Axis has gone above and beyond to support our families, raising vital funds so that we can continue to help those families when they need us the most. You have showed unbelievable spirit and determination, completing incredibly difficult challenges and raising a truly outstanding amount of money for Demelza’s Adopt a Nurse programme.”
Demelza Parent Mette explained:
“As well as memory-making and emotional support Demelza also gave practical help – from the community nursing team making phone calls and liaising with various agencies to staff at the hospice tackling paperwork. We didn’t need to worry about the cooking, cleaning, washing – we could just focus on Thomas.”
