On Friday 26th April CTG supported Katharine House Hospice by taking part in their ‘Bring a Pound to Work Day’ to raise funds to provide vital nursing care and support for patients and their families.
Going forward, CTG will be further supporting the charity by working with ERS Europe on their Community Appeal programme on an ongoing basis. Community Appeal is an environmentally responsible and socially conscious programme that collects used printer cartridges and toner from end users for which a donation is made to local hospices and charities. During 2012 the programme raised over £200,000 for local charities.
Katharine House in Banbury is a really important local charity; they offer specialist palliative care services including in patient, day hospice, community care at home, home night nursing, support for patients at the Horton General hospital, out-patients, lymphoedema treatment and bereavement support.
The hospice stands as a living memorial to the life of Katharine Gadsby who in 1984, tragically died of cancer at the age of twenty. Since the time of her death her parents Neil and Heather Gadsby, together with friends and many other people have worked tirelessly to raise funds to develop the hospice services.
