Support for Pilgrims Hospices

Pilgrims hospice Stagecoach South East is delighted to announce that Pilgrims Hospices will continue to be our charity for 2015.

Why we support Pilgrims Hospices 

Pilgrims Hospices provide free care for people with life-limiting illnesses, making their final days as good as they can possibly be. They also offer support to families for as long as they need it. They’ve been providing essential care for more than thirty years and have hospices in:

  • Canterbury
  • Thanet
  • Ashford

As many as  2,500 people in East Kent and their families access their hospice care each year. As a locally funded charity, Pilgrims Hospices need support to make sure this continues.

How we’ve supported Pilgrims Hospices 

In 2013, we launched a specially decorated bus supporting Pilgrims Hospice at Westwood Cross shopping centre in Broadstairs. This bus initially ran in Thanet but now also runs in Canterbury and Ashford.

We continue to provide support for Pilgrims Hospices through helping with fundraising events. These have included:

  • Ashford Summer Fair — we provide an annual free park and ride service for visitors
  • Canterbury Summer Fair – we donate all the food for the BBQ and our staff volunteer to do the cooking
  • Divas On Wheels Cycle Challenge —our Pilgrims Hospice bus  was used as a ‘pamper parlour’ after the event
  • Herne Bay’s Bus Rally — we showcased some of our buses to fellow bus enthusiasts
  • London Marathon — Garry Warren, a Stagecoach bus driver, raised nearly £3,000
  • Cycle Challenge — twenty-one Stagecoach employees took part
  • It’s a Knockout – twenty Stagecoach employees competed

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored our Stagecoach team so far.
