£20,000 grant given to Eden Valley Hospice


Two councils in Cumbria have joined forces to support a local hospice - providing £20,000 of funding.

Cumbria County Council’s Local Committee for Carlisle, which met on Monday 9 November, has agreed to award a £10,000 grant to local charity, Eden Valley Hospice. This has also been matched by Carlisle City Council who will also provide £10,000.

Eden Valley Hospice provides care for adults with life limiting illnesses from North Cumbria. The joint funding highlights the challenges faced by charities all over the country, as Coronavirus restrictions have significantly affected their ability to raise funds and will support the hospice’s continued recovery during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Cllr Deborah Earl, Cumbria County Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Local Committees, said:

“I am delighted that the county council’s Local Committee for Carlisle has awarded this £10,000 grant to Eden Valley Hospice - an important local institution that has helped countless families, including my own, over the years through difficult times.

“The last few months have been challenging for us all, especially for charities, which rely on hosting fundraising events and the work of their dedicated volunteers to ensure they can maintain their services.

“It’s fantastic news that the grant has been matched by the city council as well, and I hope the funds will help Eden Valley Hospice to continue delivering the important services and support they provide to local communities across the area.”

Leader of Carlisle City Council, Cllr John Mallinson, added:

“Eden Valley Hospice provides invaluable support to our local communities. During these unprecedented times, their expert help is even more important and we’re pleased to provide some financial help.

“We are living and working in extremely challenging times. We hope this funding will help those that need it most.”

Patricia Livsey, Chief Executive of Eden Valley Hospice, said:

“As the CEO of Eden Valley Hospice, I would like to express my grateful thanks to both Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council for their generous funding of £20,000 to Eden Valley Hospice.

“It is wonderful that both Councils recognise the valuable contribution the hospice makes for our community and this funding will help in the financial challenges we are currently facing due to the COVID 19 pandemic. 

“This donation will truly help us to continue to provide our much needed service for local people with life limiting illnesses.”

A cheque of £20,000 total will soon be presented to Eden Valley Hospice.
