During 2017 we are partnering with two charities - St Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley, West Sussex and the Dorking & District Talking Newspaper.

St Catherine's Hospice is a local charity with a big ambition; to help everyone face death informed, supported and pain free. It's there for people throughout West Sussex and East Surrey, when and where they need it most. Expert staff are on hand to support people living with terminal illness in their homes, community and hospice building. It could be a bath, a favourite meal, or helping someone manage their pain; for St Catherine's, hospice care is whatever patients and those closest to them need it to be. The charity also gives emotional, spiritual and welfare support to anyone affected by death and bereavement.


The Dorking and District Talking Newspaper produces a weekly local news and information service in audio format for blind and partially sighted people in Dorking and the surrounding villages within the RH4 and RH5 postal areas. The service is completely free.

The charity relies entirely on volunteers; from the editors, readers and production helpers through to the duplicators and distributors. The audio newspaper is made up from articles taken from the Dorking Advertiser each Thursday. Once each recording has been checked, the memory stick is put into special pouches which are delivered by the Post Office, and later returned by the Listener, free of charge. It is a valued service, keeping blind and partially-sighted people in touch with their community."

Senior Partner, Chris Millar, said: "We are delighted to be supporting both St Catherine’s Hospice and Dorking and District Talking Newspaper. We are very fortunate that our staff feel strongly about contributing to local charities and it was their decision to support these two charities in 2017. We have a programme of exciting events planned throughout the year and every penny raised will be as a result of the commitment and dedication of our staff to raise as much money as they can.”
