Last year, we asked our corporate supporters to join our 40 for 40 club – a fun way for businesses, companies and organisations of all sizes to support the Hospice throughout its 40th year.
What is the 40 for 40 club?
Just over a year ago we approached our corporate supporters and asked them to be part of a special 40 for 40 challenge. The aim was to raise £40,000 in the year and thank you so much to all the wonderful teams from the corporate list below for being willing to be part of this campaign. We are delighted to say that we achieved our £40,000 target, in fact exceeded the target by £3000! It has been a wonderful partnership with you all and we hope that you enjoyed the fundraising part of the challenge!
Here are a few photographs from some of the fantastic fundraising ideas you came up with!

Our 40 for 40 campaign was a new initiative where we hoped we could build up relationships with our local community through the workplace, and this has certainly been achieved. We are so grateful for the enthusiasm, commitment, fun and determination that you all showed- and also the incredible amount of money raised.
The Hospice receives only 27% of the total expenditure from NHS Lothian, and this is why you, as our supporters, remain central to our service. It is only with your continued support that we can provide our care where it is needed most. THANK YOU for giving up your time, inspiring the troops, keeping in touch and most of all being so willing to be a part of the Hospice fundraising challenge. We hope that you have enjoyed it too!
