Community cards for Christmas at Primrose
Primrose Hospice is an independent charity caring for patients in North East Worcestershire with life-limiting illnesses and supporting their families. They provide hospice care, nurse-led clinics and family support. In order for them to continue to provide their services free of charge to patients and their families they have to raise over £1.75 million every year. They rely heavily on the support of the local community as they need to generate in excess of 85% of our required income.
Lucy Perkins is the hospice's fundraiser and has been busy creating gift bags for the patients. As a school, our students have been busy writing cards, letters and poems to the residents so that they know how much we care about the community, especially as many people will not be able to see their family over Christmas.
As ever with our students, their care, compassion and sense of doing what is kind is at the heart of our community at North
