“They welcomed us into the Hospice and showed us just what an amazing place it is”
Samsung Cambridge Solutions uses creative thinking and raises over £6,000 for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity
Bake Sales, Bump Raffles, Row-a-thons, Games Nights, Halloween Bake Offs, Accumulator Challenge and International Food Day competitions are just a few of the ways that they raised an incredible total of over £6,000.
In addition to the fundraising that took place in the office, some colleagues jumped on their bikes in the Savills Gran Fondo Cycle Ride whilst others took on their own two-wheel challenge and cycled from London to Cambridge.
A knowledgeable group put the fun in fundraising when they entered the annual Ernst and Young Quiz night and were even declared winners at the end of the evening!
Jenny Brooks, Office Manager at Samsung Cambridge Solution says: “Hearing a colleague's personal experience of Arthur Rank touched many of us, we voted them in as our charity of the year in 2019 and threw ourselves into fundraising. Arthur Rank Hospice Charity were a delight to work with, always enthusiastic for our fundraising activities however bizarre.
"They welcomed us into the Hospice and showed us just what an amazing place it is. We will not forget our collaboration with them and hope we can continue to be involved with Arthur Rank Hospice Charity in the future.”
Emma Bray, Corporate Fundraiser at Arthur Rank Hospice said: “Thank you so much to the team at Samsung who were so engaged and such a joy to work with throughout 2019. The total raised will truly make a significant impact on the charity and enable us to continue providing the highest standard of care to patients and their families”.

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.
We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.
It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
