Charities for 2021
Every penny of the total sum contributed by members of the public this year will, as usual, be shared between several local charities chosen by the Rotary presidents of Ironbridge, Telford Centre, The Wrekin and Wellington. The Trustees are pleased to announce that as in previous years:
Severn Hospice will be supported with half of the amount donated by the public
For over 30 years Severn Hospice has been the region’s leading provider of specialist palliative and end of life care. As one of the busiest hospices in the UK our mission is to provide the best care and a better life for people living with an incurable illness, and those important to them. The loving care we provide goes beyond the four walls of our buildings as we care for more patients than ever before in the comfort of their own home. All of the care we provide at Severn Hospice is free of charge, but not without cost. It is thanks to the unwavering support of the people of Shropshire and Mid Wales that our caring teams are able to be there when it matters most for those who need our help. We are immensely proud and grateful for the long relationship between our hospice and the Rotary Clubs in the area. Their commitment and dedication to raising funds for charities like our hospice is truly admirable. To find out more about the work of the Severn Hospice please follow this link.
This year the four President’s of Rotary in Telford have nominated these local charities.

Details tHope House Children’s Hospices provide care and support to life-limited children and young people from Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales. We’re here to help them enjoy the best possible quality of life, both emotionally and practically. We’re here 365 days a year for their parents and families too, who can often find it hard to cope and feel isolated. We’re here throughout the lifetime of their child – and often well beyond – with specialist nursing care, counselling support, empathy and understanding. Our dedicated teams work at our two hospices, Hope House & Tŷ Gobaith, in the family’s own home and within local communities.”o follow

Our aim at Lingen Davies Cancer Fund is to support local cancer services in a way that makes a positive difference to lives affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales. We all value having high-quality cancer treatment close to home when we need it. The funds raised by our charity support cancer prevention programmes and projects that help people to live well with or after cancer. We fund equipment, buildings and people to make early cancer diagnoses, treatment and support quicker and even more effective. We are currently aiming to raise £1.3 million to fund the build of three new clinic rooms in the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre, a Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, the purchase of a new CT scanner and other, smaller projects.
