A home away from home
Within the past 12 months, Boon Edam Limited have been involved in fundraising for Pilgrims Hospices, Ashford. The hospice touches many hearts with Boon employees, which is why raising awareness of the charity is an important value for the UK based subsidiary. Located just a short drive from the office, it's important for the connection between Boon Edam and Pilgrims stays a close one. Ben Marsh, an IT Support Technician at Boon proudly awarded Victoria a cheque that combines the recent fundraising attempts from the IT department, who raised £1000 through selling technical equipment, £1779.18 from our Velo100 team who cycled 100 miles and Boon Edam donations made to the ladies who recently braced the Fire & Ice walk.
Looking forward, and making looking back memorable
Pilgrims Hospices began 35 years ago with the vision of being able to supply nursing to one entire village. Now in 2018 that one vision has created over 200 Pilgrims nurses and therapists who support thousands of people facing terminal diagnosis to live will in every single moment. Speaking with Victoria on the tour of Ashford’s hospice, she highlights the importance of helping people look forward to their life whether that’s through improving their mobility or helping them achieve something for the very last time. Those who are involved within the hospice also have family support, as there is a large emphasis on making good, happy memories to look back on removing the cold and clinical stigma behind the end of life care.
