Read what John Taylor Hospice’s ‘Gift a Christmas’ campaign means to one grateful family

John Taylor Hospice’s ‘Gift a Christmas’ appeal is running again this year and over on the JTH website you can read what this means to one grateful family — the Bloxhams — and why they consider it important to support the hospice in its fundraising efforts.

Stephanie Bloxham, who works at BVSC, was only sixteen when her father died from lung cancer in 2000. She says, ‘We want to make sure other families, just like ours, are able to receive this excellent care and emotional support at a time when they need it most. We really hope that in sharing our story people can see what an incredible difference the hospice makes in our community and choose to get behind the Gift a Christmas appeal.’

Earlier this year, Stephanie and her brothers raised over £2,500 for the hospice by hosting a fundraising party on what would have been their father’s 60th birthday.

JTH is a community interest company and a social enterprise which operates on a not-for-profit basis. All of its services are free for the people it supports and their families and all of its income is invested in providing services for local families. The ‘Gift a Christmas’ campaign aims to raise £15,000 — enough to fund all of John Taylor Hospice’s services on Christmas Day.
