Strictly St Leonard's Charity Event 21st March 2020

Gleave is proud to support Strictly St Leonard's charity dance event this year

St Leonard's will be holding their 3rd Strictly St Leonard's Finale on the 21st March 2020

St Leonard’s Hospice is an independent charity, providing specialist palliative care and support for patients, their families, professionals and carers in York, North Yorkshire. They have an In-patient Unit, Sunflower Centre and Hospice@Home service.

Shaun Robson, Director at Gleave, knows the charity personally and recognises the importance of the support they offer. Gleave is thrilled to sponsor this year’s Strictly St Leonard’s ballroom dancing competition and you may even find some of the team donning their sequins on the dance floor!

The care offered by St Leonard's is free of charge to patients and their families but not free to provide. As a charity they rely heavily on the generosity of the public to raise just over £5.8 million each year to run St Leonard's Hospice. This equates to £663 for every hour of every day. Although St Leonard’s does get some public funding the majority of the running costs have to be raised from donations and fundraising by the local community - businesses, groups and individuals.
