North London Hospice will receive a £2,000 boost thanks to seven high-flying Sainsbury’s staff. The supermarket employees from Muswell Hill are set to jump out of an airplane in aid of their local hospice. This skydive will raise important funds for the local charity, which provides specialist end-of-life care to thousands of people in Enfield, Haringey and Barnet. North London Hospice fundraiser Natalie Gordon said: “Skydiving is a fantastic way to help your local hospice. This has proved so popular we are holding another one in September, but there are lots of other ways to help your local hospice. “You can raise money for a great cause and enjoy the experience of a lifetime too – I did a skydive and it was the most exciting thing I’ve ever done!” North London Hospice receives less than 25% of its funding from the NHS – the rest comes from fundraising and legacies. The hospice provides free care for inpatients at Woodside Park as well as care and support in people’s homes across three London boroughs. Money raised can help the hospice to provide expert care for patients at home, where most prefer to be. The hospice specialist community nursing team always tries to make this possible. This summer, North London Hospice further develops its care and support with the opening its new day services from Winchmore Hill in Enfield. The new state-of-the-art building will provide many complementary therapies and has capacity to help more than 250 patients a week. To support North London Hospice by taking part in the next skydive event on 30 September – or by organising your own event – please call 020 8446 2288.
