M&S Kidderminster Pledges its Support for KEMP Hospice

M&S Kidderminster has chosen KEMP Hospice as its charity partner for 2014. KEMP Hospice provides specialist care and support to patients, families and carers in the Wyre Forest, who are dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement. M&S Kidderminster has lots of fundraising activity planned over the next few months, including sponsored bag packing, an in-store cycle challenge and even a charity leg wax! Claire Moore, store manager at M&S Kidderminster, comments: “As the KEMP Hospice is so local to the M&S Kidderminster store, we have heard of the wonderful work that they do in the community to support those living with life-limiting illnesses and their families. It’s vital that they get all the help they need to meet the huge target of £940,000, which is needed just to keep the Hospice going each year. So, by choosing KEMP Hospice as our charity partner, we hope to play a small role in helping to achieve their goal.” Elena Bloomfield, Business and Community Fundraiser at KEMP Hospice said: “We are really grateful that the staff at M&S Kidderminster have chosen KEMP Hospice as their charity partner for the year. “It is support from businesses such as M&S that enables us to continue offering support and care to patients living with life limiting illnesses, their families and their carers. Our services are provided free of charge and delivered by our skilled clinical and support teams.” For more information on M&S, visit www.marksandspencer.com.
