At the beginning of each year, the staff of Gibbs Denley vote for the charity they believe they should support as their Charity of the Year, from a shortlist put forward by the Directors. For 2017, we are delighted to announce that we have chosen to support the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity (ARHC). Gibbs Denley have also sponsored the ARHC’s Star Shine Stroll for the last eight years, and are pleased to continue in 2017, for a ninth year.
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a life-limiting illness, a cause that is close to the hearts of several members of Gibbs Denley staff. Their care and services are provided free of charge to patients, to help them and their loved ones to make every moment count.
To supplement the NHS contribution, the Charity are required to raise £2 million annually to fund the additional services provided by the Hospice.
On 11 November 2016, doors opened to patients at a new purpose built hospice in Shelford Bottom. The £10.5 million state-of-the-art build project has been designed with great consideration for the patient’s need, whilst the vastly improved facilities allow for increased service capacity.
Arthur Rank Hospice’s professional, compassionate and practical services deliver care, counselling and education, helping patients to live well and their families to live on.

We look forward to working with them throughout 2017.
