Help us raise £1m to help us care for those at the end of their life

 

For the last 40 years, the local community has been there for the hospice so that we can be there for those local people who need our help at the end of their life. For that, we want to say ‘thanks a million’.

From the very first day of Prospect Hospice, the care we’ve been able to give our patients is only possible thanks to the generous donations of local people, groups and businesses. For those who have held bake sales, run marathons, jumped out of planes and raised money in all manner of ways, we want to say, ‘thanks a million’.

Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the hospice. While our services to our patients and their families have continued throughout the pandemic, our income dried up almost overnight back in March 2020. With our 18 shops closed and our events and traditional fundraising activities cancelled, we’ve had to look at new ways of fundraising, taking much of our activity online and our supporters have continued to give in any way they can. For that, we want to say, ‘thanks a million’.

But the truth is, this last year, our income hasn’t matched our outgoings. To make sure we can continue to offer our same standard of care to all of those that need it in the local area, we need to raise £1m over the next few months, until we can fundraise again in our traditional ways.

So what can you do to help?

Our digital fundraising challenge has now come to an end, raising over £170,000 to kick start this £1m challenge.
