St Joseph Hospice in Hackney is KBPT's chosen charity to support.
St Joseph Hospice cares for and supports people affected by serious illness. They improve the quality of life for people with life limiting conditions and help them live life to the full, to the very end. They support families and carers which is also an important part of what they do. What I love about St Joseph Hospice is their open minded approach to care. They let patients bring in their pets, they don't have limited visiting hours, they even have a drinks trolley so if someone wants to finish their last days with a gin and tonic they can!
KBPT supports St Joseph Hospice by helping them with their fund-raising. We put on talks for their half marathon/marathon runners, we contribute to their newsletters for participants in their sporting fund-raising events with relevant information on the specific exercise involved. KBPT yoga teacher Sarah attends events such as Hackney Half Marathon and does warm down yoga for when their runners finish the event. Our KBPT Sunday yoga classes donate 10% of all proceeds to them on a weekly basis. We also promote St Joseph Hospice fund-raising events to our clients.
We have such a great response from the work we do with them it is a pleasure to be a support.
"A huge thank you for coming in yesterday to speak with our runners. Genuinely, every single one of them said how much they enjoyed your talk and how much useful information they took away with them. One girl in particular mentioned how much better prepared she felt for marathon day now!" St Joseph Hospice Challenge Events Manager
