We are very pleased to announce that we have just heard from Liverpool CCG that our appeal to them for transition funding has been successful, which means that we are to receive around £29,000 over the next six months. This money has been awarded to help the charity become financially sustainable and will be THE LAST funding we receive from the NHS in Liverpool. This is indeed great news and puts us totally on track, but we still need to raise over £100,000 this year and every year to stay open and to carry on supporting local cancer patients. Be happy with us for this great news, but please continue to share our social media posts and spread awareness and think of us for fundraising.
We are so absolutely delighted that our good friends at The Rose of Mossley have decided to choose us again for fundraising support. This fab bunch of people raised £3000 for Sunflowers last year, AND supported two other charities at the same time. Their support this year will help us overcome the NHS funding cut of £56,000. Big thumbs up.
Last night it was our great pleasure and privilege to be the charity of choice at Merseyside Police Federation’s annual ball (@MerPolFed). We’d like to say a huge thank you to Peter, Collette, Rossie and the team for choosing us and delivering a fabulous evening.
And the best news of all – while we await the final fundraising total, we can tell you that one very generous bidder in the auction weighed in with a whopping £10,000 donation! Not a dry eye in the house. This money will have a huge impact at Sunflowers. Thank you to everybody who donated last night, from everybody who benefits from our service.
Merseyside Police, we salute you.
We had a fantastic response to our recent NHS consultation survey, which will go a long way to helping secure funding for our services in future.
