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.
Lisa Fry, a member of Carol’s Cheerleaders, is helping to raise vital finds for Prospect Hospice as part of our Thanks a Million challenge in April after her friend and colleague was cared for by the hospice.
Lisa said: “Carole was diagnosed with cancer in October 2020 and sadly died within eight weeks of her diagnosis. Carole worked with my colleagues and me as a teaching assistant at Haydonleigh Primary School. Her journey was so short, it was dreadfully sad – she left work one day and we just never saw her again. It’s so hard when you just can’t do anything to help someone you care about.
“Because she was so close to us all, and it all happened so fast, we didn’t want to delay and decided we’d support Prospect Hospice, who had been so wonderful in the short time she had left. Carole was so happy to be welcomed by the wonderful staff, it visibly lifted her spirit. I’d done the Starlight Walk for the Prospect Hospice before, after my grandad had been in the hospice 20 years ago. It’s such a lovely place and the staff are so accommodating, and I want everyone who needs it to be able to use it, despite the fact that their normal fundraising has had to stop in the pandemic.
“We formed a team of 11 called Carole’s Cheerleaders, which includes her husband Mathew, daughters and son-in-law, and even though the Starlight Walk has had to be cancelled this year, we’re going to follow one of the routes used in past years and do it on the same date (while keeping socially distanced). I think the Thanks a Million appeal is a great idea and a great way for the community to come together and help people benefit from the care and consideration that Carole received.”
