Spire Leicester Hospital’s social committee co-ordinated a series of fundraising activities during 2011 for their chosen charity ‘Our Space Appeal’ and were able to present a cheque for £1,150 to the ‘Our Space Appeal’ charity administrators.
Over the course of the year Spire Leicester Hospital staff got involved by raising money through seasonally themed raffles, book, DVD and cake sales and a very successful ‘good as new’ bring and buy sale of shoes, handbags and jewellery.
The ‘Our Space Appeal’ was launched by the Leicester Hospitals Charity, with the support of a number of charitable trusts including the Teenage Cancer Trust to create a purpose built cancer unit for children and young people at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
Aiming to raise £1.4 million, money donated in support of the ‘Our Space Appeal’ will help provide a whole range of facilities for young people being treated for cancer from all over Leicestershire and Rutland.
