After 12 months of fundraising, Opus Energy employees have exceeded their original £10,000 target in aid of the Friends of Cynthia Spencer Hospice.

The business energy supplier, based in Northampton, took part in a variety of fundraising activities such as the New York Marathon, Itís a knock-out and charity fun days to reach their goal.

Andy Nash, Operations Director at Opus Energy, commented:
"Opus Energy is thrilled to present this donation to the Cynthia Spencer Hospice. Itís an organisation that provides people across Northamptonshire an exceptional level of bereavement and spiritual care at the end of life. They provide a comprehensive service for mainly cancer patients, and their families, for whom a cure may no longer be possible.

"We hope that our contribution to this worthy cause will go a long way to help support the hospice and care for those affected."

The hospice relies heavily on the generosity of donations to help maintain an exceptional quality of care. Although primarily funded by the NHS, they have to raise a further £650,000 each year through charitable donations and fundraising activities, to continue the services they offer at a time when people need it most.

Sue Bownass, Community Fundraiser, added:
"The Friends of Cynthia Spencer Hospice were absolutely delighted that Opus Energy chose us as their charity of the year and have very much enjoyed working alongside them on some of their fundraising events.

"The money has helped the hospice to continue employing staff for the benefits of patients; making sure their stay is as comfortable as possible.
"We wish Opus Energy luck on next yearís charity challenge and look forward to working with them again in the near future".

Opus Energy will continue to actively fundraise for the Cynthia Spencer Hospice by taking part in local events. Now they have reached the end of their pledge for the hospice, the energy supplier has announced their new primary charity for the forthcoming year as The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, pledging to raise a further £10,000 and continue their support within the local community.
