The Forum Shopping Centre in Sittingbourne has announced that Demelza Hospice Care for Children has been chosen as its new charity of the year for 2017.
Sittingbourne is home to Demelza Kent which provides professional, specialist, one-to-one care and support and access to life-enhancing facilities for babies, children and young people up to the age of 19.
As part of the 2017 charity partnership, Demelza Kent will be able to use The Forum’s regular events and activities as a platform to raise funds and awareness for their cause.
Katherine Cordrey, Community Fundraiser for Demelza, commented:
“Having a community organisation such as The Forum support our hospice makes a real difference to us. It currently costs over £10.5 million a year to maintain our current service across East Sussex, Kent and South East London but we know there are many more families in need of our care.
“As a charity we are reliant on the generosity of others so we are really looking forward to working with the Sittingbourne community, and the team at The Forum, to raise as much money as possible to enable us to continue providing our vital service for local children and their families in need.”
Monica Rana, Centre Manager at The Forum Shopping Centre, added:
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Demelza as The Forum’s new charity of the year. We are looking forward to helping the charity continue to raise much needed funds through our events and activities at the centre and hope that our loyal shoppers show their support to such an amazing local charity.”
