St Catherine’s Hospice as the charity partner of the year by RPD

Richard Place Dobson (RPD), Crawley based Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors have selected St Catherine’s Hospice as their chosen charity to fundraise for over the new financial (2021/22). In partnership with the work of the RPD Foundation, this is the second time RPD has supported this charity, and with the effects of the pandemic taking their toll the team is hoping to raise as much money as possible. 

Established in 1983, St Catherine’s Hospice is a local charity, providing expert hospice and end-of-life care for people in West Sussex and East Surrey. They help around 2,100 terminally ill people, family members, friends, and carers each year in their homes, at their day Hospice, and on their wards. 

Matthew Tyson, Managing Director at RPD said: “As we start to come out of lockdown, we are excited to start our fundraising activities again. Last year we were faced with our first ever ‘virtual’ team challenge, and even though we are expecting some level of ‘virtual’ fundraising again this year, we are hoping to carry out a few events in person. Either way, we are thrilled to support St Catherine’s Hospice.” 

In previous years, RPD has raised thousands of pounds for local charities, including St Barnabas House and Crawley Open House. Most recently, they have just finished their fundraising activities for Kent, Surrey, and Sussex Air Ambulance (KSS), where they raised an incredible £6,025. 

Helene Poursain, Director of Fundraising & Events at Air Ambulance said: “We are so grateful to everyone at RPD who helped to support us as their charity of the year in 2020. We know how difficult it has been to plan fundraising activities throughout the past year, but the team certainly stepped up to the challenge.”
