Every year the Chamber supports a local charity through various fundraising activities and a complimentary upgrade in membership to the Business Alliance Group. For 2017, our Centenary year, we’ll be supporting 2 charities.
At Cynthia Spencer Hospice we provide inpatient care, outpatient services, Hospice@Home, lymphoedema service and palliative care clinical nurse specialist service. We have two specialist Consultants in palliative medicine, a team of doctors and specialist nurses working within the Hospice and the community as well as in Northampton General Hospital and Danetre Hospital in Daventry.
Referrals for our Hospice services are usually made via a patient’s GP, district nurse or hospital Consultant and nurses.
We offer specialist physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to those with life limiting illnesses. Our focus is on quality of life and respecting the uniqueness of each person.
The specialist palliative care service is jointly funded by the Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
The cost of running the hospice is over £2.4 million, a large part of which comes from the generous support of local companies and individuals throughout the county.
Spurgeons children’s charity has been supporting marginalised and disadvantaged children, young people and their families for almost 150 years.
We work in the heart of communities, responding to their needs so that all children and young people are equipped, empowered and inspired in ways that enable them to realise the fullness of their potential.
We firmly believe that every child deserves a childhood and an equal chance to fulfil their dreams and that no child’s current situation should ever dictate their future.
Our Central Office is located in Rushden, Northamptonshire, and we deliver local services in the county including 15 children’s centres where we welcome over 12,000 children every year.
