    • The hospice is a local charity providing expert medical care and emotional support for adults with a life-limiting illness, both in special centres in Windsor and Ascot and in patients’ own homes. It costs more than £7million every year to keep Thames Hospice running and 80 per cent of its income comes from charitable donations, enabling the team to provide services free of charge, 365 days a year, to the people who need it.

      The Bracknell Sports and Social team chose Thames Hospice as the site’s charity for 2016 and set about organising a number of fun events.

      These included a Valentine’s Day bake off, a family fun day, a quiz night and a raffle held during the ever popular Christmas market.

      During the market a giant cheque was presented to Thames Hospice Trusts and Corporate Stewardship fundraiser, Helen Saich.

      Said executive administrator, Louise Wildish: “All the events were really well attended and 3Mers gave generously, enabling us to raise much needed funds for this very worthy cause supporting people in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire with a life-limiting illness and their families.”
