Getting active in our 35th anniversary year…
St Wilfrid’s Hospice is marking 35 years of expert care and compassionate end of life care in the local community in 2022. With over 360 patients being seen at any one time, our nurses’ caseloads have increased by more than 40% since the pandemic began. By Getting Active you could do the world of good in the following ways:
- £35 could sponsor an expert palliative care nurse caring for patients on our ward during the night for an hour
- £350 could sponsor over 10 hours of visiting time for a Clinical Nurse Specialist to support patients at home
- £3500 could pay for 7 days of bereavement care for loved ones from our Family Support Team
- £35,000 could pay for the running costs of the Hospice for one and half days
Do your own challenge
Whether it is pursuing a long-held goal or starting something new to get fit – we’re here to support you to be part of the St Wilfrid’s community. We can all ‘get active’ in one way or another to play a part in supporting vital hospice care. We’ve got ideas to inspire and support you, so get involved today!
Here’s where you will find useful resources like sponsorship forms, guides to virtual events and how to write a press release about your exciting Get Active fundraiser!
