Christmas appeal 2020

Help us to support local patients and give them and their families a special Christmas this year.

This Christmas, despite a global pandemic, Prospect Hospice will still be delivering end of life care to local patients.

This year, we’ve had to dramatically change the way we deliver our services, taking much more of our care out on the road and into people’s homes where they want and need us most. With our shops closed and events cancelled, our income dried up almost overnight and now, more than ever, we really need your support so we can continue to deliver this care throughout the festive period.

Malcolm and Angie are two people who have received our services this year and below Malcolm talks about what the support of Prospect Hospice has meant to them in 2020 and reflect on why Christmas is such an important time for their family.

Have you thought of donating on behalf of others as your gift to them this Christmas?

Are you struggling to find that meaningful gift for your loved one this year? Why not donate on their behalf to Prospect Hospice, giving someone else the special gift of our support and care.

This year we have provided the option to gift an additional donation to the value of your choice. You will then receive a certificate via post or email, that you can personalise and forward to your loved ones as a thoughtful and meaningful gift this Christmas.

Help us make this Christmas a special one.

Malcolm and Angie's story

Christmas is an incredibly special time for me and my family.

Like many others, it was always difficult to get our blended family together and as the children grew up and had children of their own there were other parents and grandparents to consider at this special time of year.

My dear wife Angie came up with a great idea years ago to host ‘The Garrett Family Christmas’ – an event that took place at our house a few weeks before the big day and meant the whole family could be together. At the last count, we had 19 people round the table!
