Base Cares – charity of the month, July

Every month we make a donation to a charity nominated by one of our team as part of our Base Cares campaign.

We wanted to share a little more about why our July donation is going to Severn Hospice, a charity that cares for and supports thousands of people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales living with incurable illnesses.

Severn Hospice holds a very special place in the heart of this month’s nominator, our architectural designer Yasmin, as it is where her mum was cared for in the final weeks of her life.

She says: “It quickly became a beacon of light in what was one of the darkest times of my family’s life. After all the rigorous treatment and countless hospital visits, my mum had decided that she wanted some much needed respite in the hospice. She was welcomed with open arms, and during her stay there she spoke of how blessed she was in having such a place available to her and felt like she was in ‘heaven’, how fitting.

“As people flooded in through the hospice doors to spend some last moments with my mum, they too were welcomed with open arms. No cup of tea was too much of an ask, the late night visits never turned away, sobbing was never hushed, the laughter never discouraged, the prayers and traditions never judged, the nervous pacing down the hallways never stopped and the sheer care, kindness and dedication offered by the hospice nurses and staff; who not only went above and beyond the call of duty to treat my mum like the queen she was but also never once made a single person who visited feel like a burden, we thank every single one of you. It truly was for us, and remains to many, a sanctuary – and it runs more or less entirely off donations.”

Yasmin will be making an additional donation to support her Base Cares nomination.

Severn Hospice fundraiser Jess Druce said: “Thanks so much to everyone at Base for their very kind donation. We are very grateful they chose us as the July recipient of the ‘Base cares’ charitable giving programme and very touched that they thought of us.

“Donations such as this mean so much to us and allow us to provide expert support to thousands of people who need our care.”
