Your entry will support the following local charities:
Thames Hospice offers world-class palliative and end-of-life care and support to people aged 16 years and over across East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire. Their services are free of charge to all who need them, thanks to the generosity of their amazing community and organisations, as well as their 700 incredible volunteers who give their time to support the best possible end-of-life care for local people. It costs £12 million every year to keep the hospice running and they rely on charitable support for over 50% of that.
Maidenhead Foodbank helps people (individuals and families) where one or more person in the home cannot afford to eat for at least one full day during a week, and people who would be in that position without their help. The Foodbank has a focus on providing nutritious food, including fresh food and fruit & vegetables, supplying enough to last for a minimum of 3 days. In addition, they provide a weekly three course meal for people who are homeless, isolated, disadvantaged, or elderly, and work with the Salvation Army on a soup and sandwich service for homeless people.
