Compton began working with the Arthur Rank Hospice in 2012 when it was engaged by the Trustees to conduct a fundraising resources study.
In 2013 a campaign was launched to secure the £7 million needed to provide a much-needed new hospice facility to serve Cambridgeshire.
We worked with the hospice team to raise £1.4 million which was achieved through individual gifts from a dedicated and well connected campaign board of Cambridge professionals, charitable trusts and local businesses.
Over £8.3 million was raised to make the dream of a new hospice a reality. Building work began in Summer 2015 and the new hospice received its first patients in November 2016.
Lynn Morgan, CEO commented “Although the fundraising for the new hospice is ongoing, Compton’s input was significant in getting the campaign underway and helping us secure major individual donors and trusts. They were a great team to work with.”
In March at the Cambridge News & Media Business Excellence Awards 2017 the hospice won the Allia Award for Social Entrepreneurship. The award recognises the progress that has been made during the last six years. The Biomed Realty Trust Award for Business Person of the Year was also presented to CEO, Lynn Morgan.
We wish Lynn and everyone at the hospice the best in moving into their new home.
