City Hospice, Cardiff’s local hospice, would like to thank Gareth and the team at Wessex Nissan for donating a totally ‘pawsome’ branded car to help spread the word about our up and coming fundraising event, Wag This Way.
The 5k sponsored dog walk will take place on Sunday 24th March 2019 in Bute Park and will see pooches and their owners walking to raise money to sup-paw-t the life-changing work we do with our patients and their families.
The Wessex Nissan Garage on Hadfield Rd has supported City Hospice for the last five years and General Manager, Gareth Howells, even cycled from the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas in 2017 to raise money for us.
He said, “This is our fifth year supporting City Hospice and we are delighted to be kicking off 2019 with the Wag This Way sponsored dog walk. We have lots more activities in the pipeline for the year and are hopeful that we can get to our target of raising £30,000 for this worthwhile charity. City Hospice do so much vital work in the community and it is our privilege to be involved and supporting them.”
We are Cardiff’s leading charity, caring for patients with life-limiting illnesses in their own homes and helping to support their families. We help people with conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease (MND), Dementia, Cancer and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and help them to manage their pain and symptoms. We also provide services such as counselling, financial advice, help from our Social Worker and Occupational Therapist, a range of complementary therapies and we run a Day Centre for our patients every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Our Fundraising Officer, Daisy Magill can’t thank Wessex Nissan enough for their support. “We are very fortunate to have such strong support from Wessex Nissan in Cardiff. By donating us this fantastic car, it will really help us to increase awareness of not only Wag This Way, but City Hospice as a whole. Our team work so hard to support patients and their families and we couldn’t continue to do this without the help of businesses in the local community. So thank you once again Gareth and team!”
