Help prevent loneliness and isolation among our patients by donating your unwanted smartphones to the Hospice.

We help some of the most vulnerable members of the community, all of whom are in the at-risk category for COVID-19. It is vital that we reduce loneliness among our patients and mitigate the impact this situation may have on their well-being. Holistic medicine is a vital part of our Hospice ethos, and that means taking care of patients’ mental health as well as their physical health. The stronger they are, the more equipped they will be to tackle COVID-19 and the lockdown.

That’s why we are appealing for working but unwanted smartphones and tablets. We want to continue to provide our patients with their treatment and activities during lockdown. We can do this via Skype, but the majority of our patients are unable to afford smartphones, tablets or computers.

If you have an old smartphone that you no longer need and are willing to donate it to a good cause, then please reset it to factory settings and post with its charger to:

Sue Hutton,
Day Centre
St John’s Hospice,
60 Grove End Road

Your generous donation will mean that we’re able to offer our patients continued support, including: meditation and mindfulness sessions, exercise classes, therapy, arts & crafts and social time, whilst they remain safe in isolation.
