Northern Ireland Hospice is a local charity that provides specialist palliative care to babies, children and adults across Northern Ireland with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
The NI Hospice team help provide the best quality of life for patients, from diagnosis to end of life, delivering holistic and specialist palliative care. The support and care delivered includes managing complex conditions at Hospice locations or out in the community at patient’s homes. Hospice offers specialist care that is person centred, providing pain and symptom management, developing care management programmes and offering supported short breaks for families and carers.
The decision to partner with NI Hospice was the result of a voting and selection process involving employees from across GMcG’s three offices. This is a process adopted by the firm to ensure the charity partner is the choice of employees. GMcG Managing Director Susan Dunlop adds:
“Many of our employees have personal interest or experience with a range of local charities and it is with this in mind that we encourage them to provide charity nominations for our selection process.
All of the suggested charities are of course very worthwhile causes and we are delighted to have partnered with NI Hospice for the year ahead. We are really looking forward to working with the NI Hospice team on a variety of events and fundraising activities, with the aim of raising funds as well as raising awareness of the important and much valued work of the Hospice”.
Shauny Shields, Corporate Fundraising Executive at NI Hospice, recently met with members of GMcG’s Social Committee and is pleased to have the support of GMcG. Shauny explains:
“We are absolutely delighted that GMcG have chosen Northern Ireland Hospice as their Charity Partner for 2022 and look forward to working with the team throughout the year. This partnership will help raise vital funds that will allow us to continue providing vital services to our patients and their families.
It takes £16.5m every year to run Northern Ireland Hospice and it is only through fundraising and charity partnerships such as this one with GMcG that we are able to continue to provide our specialist palliative care to local communities throughout Northern Ireland.”
