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.
We are excited to announce that we have introduced a home collection service in some areas, whilst our shops are closed, where you can request a home collection for us to come and pick up your pre-loved items.
If you’ve had a post-Christmas sort out and have unwanted new gifts or pre-loved clothes, homeware or vinyl that you would like to donate to the hospice, we’d love to take them off your hands. Your donations will be helping to raise the vital funds that are really needed right now to support people in our community.
We will be collecting in Pewsey between 10am and 2.30pm on the following days. Tuesday 2 February until Thursday 4 February
Upcoming areas where we will be collecting donations from are:
Marlborough Tuesday 9 February until Thursday 11 February Royal Wootton Bassett Tuesday 16 February until Thursday 18 February Purton, Lydiard Milicent and Lydiard Tregoze Tuesday 23 February until Thursday 25 February Wroughton & Chisledon Tuesday 2 March until Thursday 4 March Old Town, Broome Manor and Lawn Tuesday 9 March until Thursday 11 March
We are unable to collect from a household where a member is suffering from Covid-19 symptoms, is self-isolating or has tested positive within the last 14 days.
Before you donate, please make sure you have read the details below about the items we need at the moment and the items we are unable to accept at this time.
If it is raining on the day of your collection, please do not put your donation outside as we will be unable to collect any donations left out in the rain. Our driver will knock on your door to let you know that he has arrived, he will then step away from your door so you can place your donation outside safely, once you are back inside your home our driver will collect. We also reserve the right to refuse to collect all or part of your donation.
Please note: We are only able to collect items that have booked a collection by emailing CollectMyDonations@prospect-hospice.net and a collection date has been confirmed.
