As part of our ongoing commitment to the local community, we have chosen a Charity of the Year for 2017.
There are more than 200 types of cancer, and the shocking fact is 1 in 2 people in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime. RGB managment gave the team the choice between three chartiies, all helping to fight cancer and provide support to patients and their families.
We are pleased to announce that the chosen charity is:
Rowcroft Hospice are based in Torquay and help over 2,200 people living with life limiting illnesses in South Devon to make the most of every day. They have an inpatients unit in Torquay with a team of doctors, nurses, social workers and a range of other health & social care professionals who provide specialist care. They also offer support to out patients and their loved ones through therapies, bereavement support and medical consultation in an environment that helps patients and families make the most of precious time togetheer.
It cost £8.3million last year to provide their servcies.
RGB have therefore commited to generating as much funding as possible for Rowcroft over the course of 2017, to ensure that their work can continue to support the local community.
