National Hospice Support ProgrammeLast year, it was our goal to help hospices all across the UK to raise an additional £1million in funding for their causes. Our national campaign went better than we ever could have imagined but, as we enter a new decade, we are still yet to reach our one-million-pound goal. 2019 was a wonderful year, with a large number of new hospices joining our ‘Hospice Support Programme’ to reap the benefits of our metal ‘Forget Me Nots’ campaign. It was certainly our busiest year yet for hospice campaigns and, by all working together, we managed to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for hospices of various sizes all across the country.

Knife Angel & Newtown SurrenderThe Knife Angel officially landed in Powys on Friday, where it will remain outside of the Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown until the 29th of January. As part of our ‘Save A Life, Surrender Your Knife’ campaign in a bid to end knife crime and all other forms of violent behaviour, we have provided Newtown with a knife bank to enable them to conduct a month-long surrender during the Knife Angel's stay. Working alongside the Dyfed-Powys Police, this initiative has been specifically designed to utilise the Angel’s message against violent and aggressive behaviour in order to create a safer community within the heart of mid-Wales.
