Raising Invaluable Funds For The Shakespeare Hospice
This year, we’re aiming to raise £25,000 for The Shakespeare Hospice, a charity providing care and support to patients and families affected by life limiting illness. If you’d like more information about the hospice, please see our website at www.theshakespearehospice.org.uk.
Our services are free to patients, their carers and families, but not free to provide. Please consider raising money through sponsorship to help our Hospice, it really does make such a difference.
A pledge to raise £100 in sponsorship can help us provide the following for our patients and their families:
- 2 visits by Hospice at Home nurses to provide End of Life care to patients in their own homes.
- 1 nurse on call overnight to support patients choosing to die at home
- Specialist training for staff to support bereaved people
- Resources to help bereaved children work through their feelings
- The opportunity for 4 children to attend the Pantomime
- 1 bereaved child’s place at Hill End residential centre enjoying a weekend of exploration and fun
- 3 sessions with a counsellor to work though the issues related to living with a life limited illness
- Half a day of respite care for a young person living with a complex life limiting illness
You can help us raise £25,000 by:
