Cowdray Park Polo Club is delighted to announce that its charity for the 2018 King Power Gold Cup Final is the St. Wilfrid’s Hospice DREAMBUILDING Campaign.
St Wilfrid’s Hospice offers specialist, high quality care both at its Inpatient Unit and in the community. In Midhurst and the surrounding villages north of the Downs, community care is provided by Midhurst Macmillan’s specialist palliative care (SPC) nurses, who as and when the need arises, coordinate admissions to the Hospice’s ward.
Every year, demand for St Wilfrid’s services increases and its 30 year old building in Chichester is no longer fit for purpose. In 2014 the Hospice embarked upon a major capital appeal to raise at least £15.5 million to create a new purpose-built modern Hospice – a building that would enable them to deliver even greater care to patients and their loved ones, expand their services and meet the growing need for care now and in the future.
St Wilfrid’s Hospice DREAMBUILDING Appeal is in the final year of its campaign but still has to raise £1.8 million to create its much-needed new building.
Alison Moorey, Chief Executive at St Wilfrid’s Hospice said: “We are thrilled that in the final year of our DREAMBUILDING campaign, Cowdray Park Polo Club has chosen us for its 2018 charity partnership. We are very grateful for the opportunity to have a stand and bucket collection at the final of their prestigious King Power Gold Cup Final on Sunday 22nd July.”
Janey Delow, Operations Manager for Cowdray Park Polo Club added: “St Wilfrid’s has touched the lives of many of us and this is a wonderful way to repay some of their care and support. We look forward to welcoming St. Wilfrid’s Hospice DREAMBUILDING fundraisers to our Gold Cup Final and hope they have a brilliantly successful day.”
The King Power Gold Cup opens on 26th June, leading to Semi Finals on 18th July and the Final on Sunday 22nd July.
