House of Fisher are participating in the Sue Ryder ‘Love your hospice’ campaign throughout February. Having heard some inspiring and heart-warming accounts from those that have been supported by Sue Ryder whilst we attended the 2018 Thames Valley Awards ceremony, we were inspired to support this truly amazing charity.
During the month our aim is to increase awareness of Sue Ryder Hospice, spread the love and raise money.
We started off by ‘giving’ our heart to the charity for Valentine’s Day! House of Fisher donated to the charity and together with other local businesses displayed our message of support on hearts at Chiltern Training Building in Reading. This heart alone will provide one session of bereavement counselling, supporting patients and families with life-limiting conditions.
