    Consider becoming a Trinity Business Partner…
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you for considering our Trinity Business Partnership. We
need your help in order to raise £120,000 this year to support
terminally ill people and their families, either in their own homes
or here at Trinity.
Your partnership is vital in enabling us to provide skilled,
compassionate end of life care, free of charge, to over 2,000
people in your local community that need our support each year.
Supporting your local Hospice has never been so rewarding.
