The cost of keeping the Hospice going for one year is £3 million which has to be completely self-funded as the Hospice receive no statutory government funding. Everyone at Indigo Furniture was overwhelmed with the work that the Hospice carry out which is completely reliant on the generosity of the public and local businesses.

From residential stays at the hospice so parents, children and siblings can enjoy some rest bite to daycare services, accompanying families to hospital appointments, music therapy so children can express themselves and most importantly the offer of friendship and support for every single member of the family. The end of life support they offer also means that the family have someone to depend and lean on while experiencing one of the most traumatic and devastating moments of their lives.

Indigo Furniture have always supported this local charity and worked with their fundraising team on a number of occasions. The biggest collaboration being the furnishing of their Coffee and Book shop in the middle of Bakewell in the Peak District.
