Yesterday we visited our Charity Partners at Strathcarron Hospice to celebrate another year of our incredible partnership.
Strathcarron Hospice provide specialist palliative care and expert end of life care for the people of Forth Valley, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth, caring for people with illnesses that cannot be cured. They are also actively involved in research and education in palliative care, promoting and influencing the delivery of palliative care locally and beyond. The work Strathcarron do is vital and Falkirk Football Club is extremely proud to be associated with the Hospice.
Over the season ahead the club will be working on fundraising and awareness events to promote and support the Hospice. These include supporting the Kilimanjaro trek, the gifting to the hospice of tickets for every home match and working together on a design a car competition with our partners Imperial Cars.
The club will also be embarking on a volunteer day with the hospice to celebrate their birthday in April 2020, as well as our annual awareness day on the 14th December, when we play Raith Rovers.
Kieran Koszary, Commercial Director said: “Once again it was an honour to visit the staff and patients at Strathcarron Hospice, which is always such an uplifting and rewarding experience for club staff and players.
We are now entering into our 5th year of our partnership and we are fully committed to doing everything in our power to raise awareness and funds for the Hospice. We will also be launching a number of exciting initiatives over the months ahead which will take our partnership to a new level”.
Strathcarron added: “Strathcarron Hospice has provided expert end of life care, love and support to local people for over 38 years now, but we are only able to do so thanks to the continued support of our local community. We are delighted that Falkirk FC continues to support our hospice on an ongoing basis and we are looking forward to the year ahead. We’ve got lots planned to make this the most successful year of our partnership to date so watch this space.”
