Covid-19 is affecting us all but Prospect Hospice remains operational in order to support the increasing number of our community needing end of life support. Here you'll find lots of information about the virus and information and advice that we think will help you at this time.
Prospect Hospice has been providing end of life care to the people of Swindon and north east Wiltshire for over 40 years. Find out more about where we've come from and who we are here.
Find out about the range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These are designed to provide compassionate, personalised support during every stage of a life-limiting illness in every kind of care setting, to anyone who needs it, free of charge.
We couldn’t do what we do without considerable support from our local community. Find out all the different ways in which you can support Prospect Hospice, including fundraising, volunteering and purchasing from our shops. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
A local charity is encouraging people in their community to challenge themselves to work out this February and raise vital funds so they can continue to care for local people who need hospice care during these difficult times.
If you are up to stepping in the shoes of a hospice nurse, who walks on average 12,000 steps a day, that’s walking 170 miles in February or have always fancied tackling the three peaks, which you could do as a family by climbing a peak each, this is the challenge for you. By taking part in this new virtual challenge, not only will you be staying fit in February, you will also be supporting local people who need hospice care.
Sally Langheim, challenge events fundraiser at Prospect Hospice said: “We need our community’s support now more than ever to continue to be here seven days a week for local people who need our specialist hospice care. We hope lots of people will take part in Work Out to Help Out, either at home or as part of their daily exercise. It’s a great motivator to keep yourself active and do something to help others in your community.”
“As we all continue to deal with Covid-19, there has never been a better time to focus on your health and wellbeing. You can take part in the challenge at a time or date to suit you throughout February. You can choose your own personal challenge or we have some activities on our website to help get your started.”
It costs just £10 to sign up, and you will receive support throughout the challenge, and when you’ve completed your challenge, the hospice will send you a well-deserved medal to show their appreciation.
Whether you’re a pavement stomper or mountain climber, make a difference to your local hospice and support their work by signing up and setting yourself a challenge today, find out more at: www.prospect-hospice.net/workout/
