Christmas Appeal

Help bereaved families this Christmas

Bereavement care might not be the first thing you think of at Prospect Hospice. But, for people like Sally, it’s been a lifesaver.

Your gift today can provide vital help to the families and close friends of those we care for at Prospect Hospice, through one-to-one sessions and regular bereavement support groups.

Please, will you help more grieving families through their darkest times, by supporting this vital service?


Sally's story

“As someone who has lost a loved one, I know how devastating grief can be. Christmas is an especially hard time of year, but there is a way you can help bereaved families this Christmas.

Imagine going into a dark room, crawling under a blanket, and feeling awfully, terribly and totally alone. That was what grief felt like for me. I thought I could cope – I’ve experienced death before. But the grief when my son died knocked me sideways.

My lifeline came in the form of Prospect Hospice’s bereavement team. So this Christmas, I want to ask, could you fund vital bereavement services, and help more people going through their darkest days?”

Don't forget your Christmas bauble!

If you received our letter in the post, you will also have received our Christmas bauble. There is space for you to write on the back so that when you return it, your bauble will hang on the tree in the hospice. Everyone who visits or receives care this Christmas can read your message and be encouraged by your words.

If we did not contact you by letter and you would like to receive our Christmas bauble, please contact our fundraising team.

Thank you to our supporters

The care we offer to patients and their families costs over £8.4m every year – and seventy two per cent of this is raised through the support of our community. Read more about our amazing supporters.
