Savills has helped to raise over £90,000 for Royal Trinity Hospice from its annual garden party, which has been sponsored by Savills’ south west London offices for the last 10 years.
The event is held in the grounds of the hospice next to Clapham Common. Guests arrived to drinks and canapés on the lawn with entertainment from a live band. They were given a moving insight into the importance of the work that the hospice does during a speech from someone with first-hand experience of their services.
The auction highlights with donated prizes, included a safari trip and a stay in a ski chalet at the Courchevel resort in the Alps. The Savills team helped set up and organise a number of games to raise more money, including ‘guess the house price across the country’ and ‘guess how many sweets in the jar’.
The hospice was founded in 1891, making it England’s oldest. It provides end of life care, support, information and advice to patients and those close to them. In any year they look after between 450 and 1,500 people.
Robin Chatwin, head of Savills south west London residential, says; “Having worked with the hospice for many years, we have a real connection to the cause and look forward to this event. Many of us are local to the area and have personal connections to the Royal Trinity Hospice, so it makes our involvement even more special. The care that the hospice provides is unparalleled, offering support and dignity to individuals and their loved ones during very difficult circumstances.”
