Orbit South residents support Pilgrims Hospice

Pilgrims Hospices Regional Fundraising Manager Karen Kenward was delighted to receive £320 from residents at Napleton Court sheltered housing and Victoria Villa extra care scheme, both owned and managed by Orbit South.

Christine Scott, Orbit South’s Sheltered Support Officer, says; “We have been holding quiz nights and fundraising through various sales for Thanet hospice for several years now. Residents feel that being able to support the charity even in their latter years makes many of them feel closer to family members who have been cared for at the hospice.

“Friends and relatives also support the residents to make the sales and quizzes a success and they have always given generously of their time and of course their money. These funds will to go towards the wonderful care provided.”

Karen Kenward went on to say; “The continuous generosity shown by Thanet residents is truly amazing. We really would not be able to run our sites without their regular support. This money will enable us to continue to provide care to all who need it, both within the hospice and at home. Thank you."
