After 12 days of intense fundraising, our latest fundraising campaign to Win a Wedding, with Central FM and The Royal Hotel, has come to a close.

From Friday 12th – Wednesday 24th, four couples from across the Forth Valley went all out in a bid to win an amazing wedding package worth over £14,000. In total over £34,093 was raised which will now be used to pay for over two and a half days of care across all of our services, both here at the Hospice in Denny and out in our local communities. This will make a meaningful difference to local people living with, and dying from, a terminal illness and we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Claire & Danny, Louise & Alan, Kelly & Martin, and Sara & Keith. 

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of Central FM and all of the generous sponsors who contributed to the amazing wedding package. Thank you to everyone involved and congratulations to our winning couple Claire & Danny!

Danny and I would like to thank our lovely parents, friends, family and local businesses for the help and support they have provided us over the past 12 days. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster and we are overwhelmed by the effort. £10,606.65 for Strathcarron Hospice - What an achievement! We are on cloud 9 and still in disbelief. I don’t think it has yet sunk in that we have won a full wedding package and have a date, I am still crying! The last 12 days have been a buzz and knowing that we were doing this for an amazing charity that is close to our hearts.  The 3 other couples also did an amazing job and it was nice to meet them and their families.  All in a total of £34093.58 was raised between us all which is unbelievable, Strathcarron are the real winners here!

I am so delighted with the results of The Central FM Win Your Wedding with The Royal Hotel and in partnership with Strathcarron Hospice.  We cannot thank enough all our sponsors who took part and provided an amazing wedding package.  The £34,093 raised by all 4 amazing couples was way above our expectations. Strathcarron Hospice is a much loved local charity and all of us at Central FM are delighted they are now our official charity partner and we look forward to working together in many new projects.  I'm delighted to say that Win Your Wedding will become part of the annual calendar.  We admire not only the fantastic frontline staff at Strathcarron but also the amazing fundraising team who raise over £5 million locally to keep this vital service right here in the Forth Valley
