Penarth boutique announces City Hospice as new charity partner

The Queen B Boutique in Penarth has announced that City Hospice will be its new charity partner for 2024-2025.

City Hospice, Cardiff’s local hospice, is the only provider of home-based specialist palliative care in the capital. In addition to providing care and services including welfare advice and complementary therapies to patients with terminal or life limiting illnesses, the charity offers bereavement counselling and support for their families.

The charity needs to raise over £3m each year to provide their services free of charge and the work would not be possible without the support from the local community.

Over the next year, The Queen B Boutique will partner with City Hospice on various initiatives to raise awareness and funds for the charity, ensuring that City Hospice can continue to care for patients and their families at what can be the most difficult time in their lives.

A key aspect of the collaboration will be The Queen B VIP Discount Card programme, which raised an incredible £5,636 for the boutique’s previous charity partner CF Warriors. The VIP Card is £5 and all proceeds from the VIP Card sales will be donated directly to City Hospice.

Jodie Tanner, Founder of The Queen B Boutique, said: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with City Hospice for the upcoming year.

Their dedication to managing patients’ symptoms and delivering community palliative care allows each person in their care to live their lives to the fullest for as long as possible.

“Our Queen B VIP Discount Card programme will once again be at the forefront of our fundraising efforts, and we know that it will make a significant difference to City Hospice. We look forward to making a positive impact together and participating in the many exciting activities planned for the year ahead.”

Amanda Fenton, Fundraising and Marketing Director at City Hospice, said: “We are so excited that The Queen B Boutique has chosen to support City Hospice as its charity of the year for 2024-2025! We want to say a massive thank you to those who nominated City Hospice and we look forward to our partnership over the next year.

“This support will be invaluable for us, and every contribution will enable us to reach more patients and their families across Cardiff.”
