G3 celebrates Nurses’ Day with £40,000 pledge to sponsor a nurse.

Friday, 10 May 2019

For the third consecutive year, car auction specialist, G3, have donated £40,000 to the Hospice to cover all the costs of employing a Hospice nurse for a year.
 
As part of our Nurses’ Week activity, we invited the staff from G3 to our Nurses’ Day party, to say a special thank you for their generous donation. 
 
The team joined in with games and quizzes, chatted with our nursing team, and enjoyed some sweet treats, which had a quirky twist – stool sample chocolate pudding anyone? They also very kindly brought in some cupcakes for everyone to enjoy, which were delicious! 
 
This is the latest in a series of fundraising drives from G3, which first began in 2010 when director Matt Dale, completed four marathons and an ultra-marathon to raise valuable funds for the Hospice. But wanting to take this support even further, the firm as a whole has since donated over £150,000 to our Hospice.
 
Jo Benson, Nurse Manager at the Hospice said; “It was fantastic to welcome staff from G3 at the Hospice to celebrate our amazing healthcare team with a Nurses' Day party. Our nurses are dedicated to providing quality care to patients with life-limiting illnesses all year round. We’re so grateful to G3 for recognising this and for pledging such a generous donation to support our work.”
 
The funds supplied by G3 over the past two years have made extra money available elsewhere at the Hospice – allowing our nursing team to care for more people with complex conditions.
 
Commenting on the drive behind G3’s continued support, Matt said: “Everyone at G3 is committed to supporting The Prince of Wales Hospice and with this being their 30th year we wanted to help them celebrate the events taking place during Nurses' Week.
 
“I have first-hand experience of the amazing support the Hospice gives to patients and their families so it’s great for me and the team to offer a pair of hands to the nurses and honor their amazing work in the local community we operate in.  The team at G3 is looking forward to working with the Hospice throughout their 2019 anniversary with a number of events planned to help raise awareness and valuable donations to enable them to continue their important work.”
