Hiscox

Hiscox York have chosen to support Martin House as their nominated charity throughout 2020.
 
They aim to raise £20,000 by taking part in office fundraising and challenges throughout the year, with all money raised by staff members being matched by the company. So far teams have run half marathons, triathlons and arranged virtual Easter fundraisers!
 
In addition to this, the Hiscox Foundation have generously donated £50,000 to help Martin House adapt our services during COVID-19, to continue to provide vital support during a heightened time of anxiety for many of our families. These funds could mean families can have access to a doctor specialising in Paediatric Palliative Medicine for advice, care and guidance. This support is available 24/7, negates the need for a GP appointment or hospital admission, providing reassurance to families at a time when they are feeling very vulnerable. 
 
Hiscox's ongoing support is integral in ensuring advice, symptom control, respite, end-of-life care and bereavement support is available from Martin House when families need it most.
