St Luke’s Hospice Named as City College Charity

09 August 2018 | College News

St Luke’s Hospice has been announced as City College Plymouth’s chosen charity for the forthcoming academic year.

Every year, students and staff at the College raise thousands of pounds for good causes, including a nominated charity which is the focus for their fundraising efforts. This year, the College has chosen to work with St Luke’s – a charity committed to caring for those with serious illnesses and helping them to maintain privacy and dignity at the end of their life.

“We want to say thank you to everyone at City College Plymouth for choosing us as their charity sponsor this year,” said St Luke’s Hospice Business Fundraising Manager, Nicola Keen. “The generosity and hard work of students and staff will help us to keep providing the best possible care, advice and support for our patients and their families.”

Pauline Hands, Director of Marketing and Business Engagement at the College, said: “Over the years our students have raised funds for St Luke’s as part of their own enterprises – it is a cause close to their hearts and why we will be dedicating our fundraising efforts to the charity this year. We are excited to be working with St Luke’s and hope to raise as much money as we can for this amazing, local not-for-profit organisation.”

Last year the College raised nearly £3,700 for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity committed to providing support, information and guidance to everyone dealing with cancer. Students and staff volunteered countless hours and will be hoping to have similar success this year with St Luke’s.
