Charters Financial Services is proud to announce we have nominated Mountbatten Hampshire as our chosen charity in the Southampton area.
Mountbatten Hampshire ensures its patients and their families have access to expert and compassionate care. This includes providing highly skilled end of life care to people living with a terminal illness, whether it’s within their own homes, a care home or in its inpatient unit at the hospice building in West End or as part of its bespoke day, self-help and rehabilitation services. Mountbatten Hampshire also supports patients’ families, friends and carers through their illness and bereavement.
‘We are delighted that Charters Financial Services have chosen to support Mountbatten Hampshire,’ says Michelle Wheeler, Corporate Fundraiser for Mountbatten Hampshire. ‘It costs £7 million a year to provide our services so Charters’ fundraising efforts and support will help fund our expertly skilled clinical teams which include nurses and doctors. They provide care and support for over 3000 people across Southampton City and West Hampshire who need us every year. Thank you.’
As Alain Amos, Managing Director of Charters Financial Services, reveals, his teams are committed to supporting Mountbatten Hampshire in many ways in the coming months.
‘Every year, it costs a considerable amount of money for The Mountbatten Hospice in West End to stay open, so Charters Financial Services will be holding a number of events to raise money for the centre. Our first fundraiser is a sponsored cycle that will see everyone at Charters Financial Services taking part in an epic endurance session on 16th July on exercise bikes at our Mortgage Hub in Chandlers Ford. Shortly after that, in September, two of our staff members, Stephanie Phillips-James and Simon Aston, will take part in the Winchester Half Marathon on behalf of Mountbatten Hampshire. We wish them the best of luck over that beautiful, but hilly course.
‘The charity is also close to my heart as my mother passed away in a hospice and I know the care she received was amazing – I saw first-hand how empathetic and caring all the staff were. One of our employee’s wife, Louise Dickety, also works as a nurse at the hospice in West End and, like all care professionals, has gone above and beyond during the pandemic. Mountbatten Hampshire really feels like a fitting charity to support.’
