IPM's 2022 Charity of the Year
IPM is proud to announce that after numerous nominations within the business and a consequent vote amongst all its staff, the charity we will be supporting in 2022 is The Rosemary Foundation
The Rosemary Foundation was founded in 1997 by a group of dedicated former staff members of the Bordean House palliative care unit, to provide a ‘Hospice at Home’ service for patients suffering from cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
Since then, the Foundation has supported over 3,300 patients (November 21) and their respective loved ones and has extended the area it covers to serve a wide range of places, including Mid and South East Hampshire and into West Sussex.
This charity was nominated by our accounts manager, Vicki.
"I put them forward for our charity of the year as I sadly lost my Nan in 2020 and they were an integral part in giving her a very dignified passing at home. They also enabled my mum and Aunt to go from caregivers, back to daughter and daughter-in-law at such an emotional time.
After battling Ovarian Cancer for years, she had a fall at home due to a Stroke in September 2020. Without the Rosemary Foundation and their lovely team who played, if possible, an even more vital role due to Covid, my Nan would have been taken to hospital and died alone. This was sadly the reality that too many families had endure during the last couple of years.
Thankfully, we had the support of The Rosemary Foundation and with their never faulting care, my Nan passed away in her sleep at home, in her own bed, surrounded by loved ones. As a family, we can’t thank them enough for the kindness they showed us at such a difficult time."
Over the next 12 months, we will be doing a range of fundraising activities for them, as well as helping them where we can in other ways.
