£10,000 has been raised for Watford charity, Peace Hospice Care, by members of the Watford Mosques & Welfare Association for the Muslim Community.
The Association had been raising funds for the Hospice throughout 2017, and presented the cheque on Monday 19th March to Declan Carroll, the charity's Chief Executive. The impressive amount raised will be used by the Hopsice to provide free care for patients with life-limiting illnesses in South West Hertfordshire.
"We recognise that Peace Hospice Care provides a vital service to the community and we want to support their work as much as we can," said Rasheed Choudry, a Trustee for the Watford Mosques & Welfare Association for the Muslim Community. "Many people don't realise that the Hospice is a charity and that their work is reliant on the goodwill of the public. We want to help ensure that they can continue to deliver their specialist services for generations to come."
CEO Declan Carroll said: "We are extremely grateful to the Watford Mosques & Welfare Association for the Muslim Community for their generous donation. We rely heavily on donations and members of the Association have been advocates for the Hospice for many years - we are touched by their kindness. Such heartfelt and continued interest and support really does make a difference."
To run and deliver its services, Peace Hospice Care needs £5 million a year. The charity provides free, specialist care for the families of those with life-limiting illnesses, as well as the patients themselves at such a difficult time.
