You will have all been disappointed that our much-loved Summer Garden Party at Royal Trinity Hospice could not take place this year. Sadly, this is the second year running the event had to be cancelled, but we are cautiously optimistic that the event will be back next May – bigger and better than ever before!

This year marks Trinity's 130th anniversary and they are celebrating the difference they have been making in our community since 1891. They are the oldest hospice in the UK, and we could not let this important milestone go by without showing our support to this amazing charity.

Therefore, we are once again calling on all our friends to give generously and help Trinity to be there for every patient and their family for the next 130 years. Demand for their specialist palliative and end-of-life care is increasing at an alarming rate and Trinity can only meet this growing need with your help.

Last year, thanks to your fabulous generosity, our Summer Party Appeal raised an incredible £54,261 for the hospice and we would love to be able to beat that number this year. We ask that you donate the money you would have spent on tickets to the party (£45 each), or if you usually sponsor a Trinity nurse or bid in our auction, please donate the amount you were planning to spend. Be as generous as you possibly can.

We are delighted and very grateful that our long-time sponsor Savills are generously launching this appeal with a fantastic gift of £5,000. Robin Chatwin, Head of Savills SW London said:

“We're only too happy to kick-start this campaign with a donation from Savills. Royal Trinity Hospice supports so many people across our community and it has been a difficult year for everyone. We have been supporting the hospice for over 30 years and would strongly encourage others to donate if they can.

We are also pleased to announce this year that we will donate £50 to Trinity for every property appraisal for either sales or lettings booked in with our Clapham, Battersea and Wandsworth offices before the end of December 2021. Email [email protected] to book your appointment and quote Royal Trinity Hospice.” 

Please give as generously as you possibly can to ensure that Trinity is there for the next family who needs them.

Thank you all so much and we look forward to seeing you all in 2022!
