New stretch target

Wow, we have reached our target! Thank you all, so much, for your support. As we still have time - we want to strecth our goal - to try and cover another day of care this Christmas in our community.


We're raising funds to provide our patients with Hospice at Home care over the Christmas period!

Christmas is such a special time of year; a time for sharing happy moments with family and friends. A time for creating memories. For some of our patients this will be their last Christmas and so it’s even more important that they are able to spend time with their loved ones.

Will you donate to help make a patient's Christmas as comfortable and special as possible? Show your support for our Hospice at Home team working over Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day!

How you can help?

Will you help us raise £4,650 to pay for our Hospice at Home team to care for our patients and their loved ones this Christmas period, 24/7? We are initially aiming to cover Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but if all goes well we will extend our target to cover other days of the Christmas period.

Why help?

Over these three days, our specialist Hospice at Home team will be working to provide the best possible care to patients with life-threatening illnesses who need care and support to be able to stay at home. The care we provide will enable patients to enjoy Christmas with their loved ones, and relax in the knowledge that the specialist support they need is available.

For some of our patients, our care means they can spend time with loved ones during their last Christmas. For some, whose family can’t be with them, we offer companionship at a lonely time. For others, our care means that their loved ones can have a break from being a carer and simply spend time being a husband, wife, son or daughter. For all of our patients over Christmas, the care and support we offer means that they are able to make most of the time they have left together.

Our goal is to make each day in our patients’ lives a good day. Free of pain, in comfort and in peace. But we know that Christmas is an especially difficult and emotional time. We always make a huge effort to make the festive period as positive and happy as we can for our patients and their families. The relief, care and support our brilliant Hospice at Home team offers makes all this possible.

Your donation will help us give all our patients in the community a comfortable and special Christmas, safe in the knowledge that our Hospice at Home team are here when they need them.

*** Care will be provided to all our patients in the community over Christmas, whether or not we successfully reach our fundraising target for this crowd funding campaign.

*** All rewards for pledges have been given to the hospice free of charge.

*** Figures for the cost of our services are based on 2014-15 audited accounts.

*** If you are unable to donate online - please telephone the fundraising office on 01905 763963 and we can arrange an alternate method of payment.
