RCM has announced a new charity partnership with the Douglas Macmillan hospice, which cares for adults with palliative or end of life diagnosis across North Staffordshire.
The Dougie Mac, as it is best known, provides 24-hour care and support to people with life limiting illnesses.
The hospice was established in 1973 as a 28-bed care facility serving primarily the North Staffordshire area and today it is the only adult hospice within North Staffordshire.
RCM is committed to supporting the charity, which needs to raise over 75% of its £12 million a year running costs from voluntary donations, and will be holding a Corporate Charitable Golf Day in September to raise much-needed funds.
“We are very excited to enter into the charitable partnership with Dougie Mac. It allows RCM to support the local community and give something back to the people of North Staffordshire, RCM’s headquarters for many years,” said Amy Baker, marketing manager, RCM.
“Having seen first-hand the care and support provided by this wonderful charity, they are a perfect fit for RCM. Our customers have agreed to sponsor individual holes at our Corporate Golf Day and we hope this will raise a good amount of much-needed money on the day.”
Alex Ward-Brassington, fundraising manager at Douglas Macmillan added: “Douglas Macmillan Hospice was delighted to learn that the team at RCM are hosting a Golf Day in support of the hospice. We rely on the support of local individuals and businesses to help the hospice continue its work not only at the hospice here in Blurton, but throughout North Staffordshire. Thank you to all at RCM for organising and hosting this event, we are truly grateful for their hard work and support.”
