[E]den Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice have announced that their charity partnership with Penrith Building Society has raised more than £3,000.

Since 2015 employees and customers at the building society have hosted a number of fundraising events in aid of the local charity. At their recent AGM Penrith Building Society presented Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw with £3,760.

Natalie Bingham, Corporate Fundraiser at Eden Valley Hospice, said ‘’It has been an absolute pleasure working with the whole team at Penrith Building Society. Not only have they raised money for us, they have also supported us with our recent Jigsaw shop opening in Penrith as well as helping us make pompoms to help us break our Guinness World Record attempt last year! It’s been a truly wonderful partnership and we wish them all the very best in their future fundraising activities.’’

Amyn Fazal, chief executive at Penrith Building Society said “We have had a tremendous amount of engagement from both our members and our staff and we are proud to be associated with these very worthwhile charities that can make such a big difference in our community,”

The money raised by the staff and customers at Penrith Building Society will help the local charity to provide care, support and activities to local adults and children with life limiting illnesses. This care and compassion is extended to all of the patients’ families, friends and carers.

Year on year it costs Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw £3.7million to provide the care, support and activities to local adults and children. Approximately 28% of the funding is received from the NHS with the remaining £2.7million raised by the kindness, support and generosity of the local community.
