Farleigh Hospice

Every year at J Browne we hold a Christmas raffle with a chance for one of our staff to nominate a charity of their choice to receive the money raised. This time Lisa Blundell, our Head of Planning and Customer chose Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford.

Farleigh Hospice provide hospice care to people affected by life limiting illnesses across mid Essex. They also provide support for families and carers, and for people who have been bereaved. We believe it is an excellent, local charity that does outstanding work for our community.

Lisa commented on her choice of charity; ‘Fairleigh’s is a charity that has done a lot for our family over the past couple of years. This is just a small ‘thank you’  for all their support and kindness.’ Lisa’s Mum, Shelia, kindly presented the cheque to the Farleigh staff who were very grateful for the help.

Through the raffle, and the Company matching funding, we managed to raise a grand total of £1,163. Well done everyone who participated and those who would like to learn a bit more about this charity please visit their website at
