Design Group Supports Willen Hospice with Volunteering

Earlier this week, Design Group’s Eversholt head office was pleased to support Willen Hospice by volunteering time and manpower at the charity’s donated clothing warehouse.

Willen Hospice is a registered charity that provides specialist care for people whose illness no longer responds to curative treatment, providing care for people from the age of 18 years upwards.

Willen Hospice provides services to three Primary Care Trusts – Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire, offering its vital services across a wide geographical area.

Despite this, however, the hospice receives less a quarter of its funding from the NHS and relies almost entirely on donations to operate.

The Design Group Eversholt team each donated half a day of their time to help Willen Hospice sort through and process donated clothing.

As a result of Design Group’s combined efforts, 127 bags of recycled clothing were processed, generating the charity £571.50 in funding.

Reflecting on the day with Willen, Giles Willits, Group CFO, said: “It was a great afternoon, lots of fun and good to know we were helping such a worthy cause.”
