Community fundraising

St John’s Hospice is in the community, for the community. So we love it when local organisations get involved to fundraise for us!

The tremendous support we have received from the local community is now being extended further afield, and many more people are now becoming actively involved. This support is instrumental in helping us raise the £2.1million that is needed each year to keep our vital services available to the patients and families that need us.

How your gift helps

Over the course of the year, we support over 4,000 patients and their families. Here’s how your support helps us to care for more people:

£50

could buy a clothing kit for a St John’s Hospice Community Nurse.

£100

could pay for the training of a Hospice volunteer, who will provide practical help and emotional support to patients in the Day Services Centre.

£150

could buy 2 weeks worth of clinical disposables for one of our nurses working in the community

£200

could pay for one day of expert nursing care.

£750

could pay for a syringe driver, providing continuous, effective pain relief.

£1,000

could pay for a week of physiotherapy to help our patients maintain their strength, mobility and independence.

 

£2,500

could sponsor a St John’s Hospice Community Nurse for 2 weeks.
