Sepura staff’s fund-raising effort for UK hospice


Sepura has raised over £4,000 for the Arthur Rank Hospice in Cambridge, bringing the charity closer to the £100,000 target for its ‘Hospice at Home’ service.

Arthur Rank was the company’s chosen charity for six months, during which time fundraising activities included treasure quests, gin tasting and karting. According to the Sepura, this was carried out in memory of colleague David Armitstead, who died in the care of the hospice early last year.
Speaking of the effort, Joe McHugh, HR director at Sepura said: “Supporting Arthur Rank has allowed our colleagues to get behind a great cause, in memory of our colleague David.
“We are lucky at Sepura to have an active social programme allowing all our colleagues to play a part in supporting our chosen charity. This is a huge part of what makes Sepura such a positive working environment.”
Arthur Rank’s Hospice at Home service enables patients to die peacefully and with dignity in their own home. Launched in May 2019, its ‘Help us be there’ appeal was intended to help provide 200 additional nights of care.
Donna Talbot, director of fundraising and communications at the charity, said: “We could not be more appreciative of the efforts of the team at Sepura. The support from companies across the region is vital to funding our care provision, and it is touching to see the lengths that people will go to supporting the charity.”
